Overview: openEHR is a virtual community working on interoperability and computability in e-health. Its main focus is electronic patient records (EHRs) and systems. openEHR has published a set of specifications defining a health information reference model; a language for building 'clinical models', or archetypes, which are separate from the software; and a query language. The architecture is designed to make use of external health terminologies, such as SNOMED CT, LOINC and ICDx, resulting in systems and tools for computing with health information at a semantic level, and thereby enabling true analytic functions like decision support, and research querying.
