The Primary Health Care Electronic Medical Record Content Standard (PHC EMR CS), version 3.0, includes 45 priority data elements and associated clinician-friendly pick-lists. The intent of the standard is to increase the availability of structured coded data in EMRs and support priority information needs at the practice and health system levels. The Terminology Gateway has subsets that specifically support some of the 45 priority data elements.
