Talk:Detailed Clinical Models
Comment by William Goossen on this: This use of UML is agreed in the Patient Care committee and has many experts in favor of this. However, in particular the OpenEHR representatives challenge the use of UML. At this stage UML does allow to specify all characteristics of the examples we worked with. That cannot be done with an HL7 template as they currently exist. It can also not be done in the OpenEHR or CEN/ISO 13606 archetypes. So in order to be complete for the clinical material, we believe UML is appropriate. In particular because the CEN/ISO 13660 standard and the OpenEHR reference information models are in UML and a transform without loss of meaning can be assumed at this stage.
