Children’s EHR Format Moved to United States Health Information Knowledgebase

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ’S) Children’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) Format has moved to the United States Health Information Knowledgebase (USHIK).  The transition to USHIK helps align the Children’s EHR Format with related knowledgebase information associated with Meaningful Use, health IT standards, and related clinical quality measures.  The transition also offers a more user-friendly interface. 

The Children’s EHR Format is a set of child-specific requirements (and other requirements of special importance for children) that an EHR should meet to perform optimally for the particular health care needs of children. The Children’s EHR Format, developed by AHRQ and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), with input from the American Academy of Pediatrics, was released in February 2013.   

The Children’s EHR Format can be accessed at https://ushik.ahrq.gov/ under the tab “Child EHR Format.” 

Additional information can be obtained at healthit.ahrq.gov/childehrformat.

Questions can be directed to cehrformat@ahrq.hhs.gov.
