Been doing some literature review stuff and hit a few papers from 10 years ago (link below) that are focussing on OWL transforms etc. There’s a thread from the below paper that positions 13606 and openEHR differences as;
• openEHR was designed to support construction of EHR systems,
• ISO 13606 was designed for exchanging EHR extracts,
Would it be safe to suggest that the historical difference between 13606 and openEHR (message vs persistence) is manifest in the HL7 opposition that we see now? It appears that 13606 was a direct HL7 competitor (in theory)? But as I am far too young to have battle scars of that time, was there any argybargy with V3/RIM and 13606? I’m sure there’s some literature on it but wondered your thoughts first?
Generally, the need for semantic models as a route to a unified ontology does seem overly academic when the business of just getting systems to understand each other is hard enough. Interesting nevertheless…
