Meaningful Use Measures:
For at least 80% of all unique patients age 2 and over seen by the EP, record blood pressure and BMI; additionally plot growth chart for children age 2-20.

1. Enable a user to electronically record, modify, and retrieve patient’s vital signs including, at a minimum, the height, weight, blood pressure, temperature, and pulse.
2. Automatically calculate and display body mass index (BMI) based on a patient’s height and weight.
3. Plot and electronically display, upon request, growth charts (height, weight, and BMI) for patients 2-20 years old.
