- Review Report – Update to Recommendations
- Recommendation 1: The proposed reference model is thoroughly tested using a representative set of clinical models that together demonstrate all aspects of the reference model;
- Recommendation 2: A set of stable clinical patterns (e.g. OBSERVATION, EVALUATION, INSTRUCTION, ACTION, TIME_SERIES, SCHEDULE) are defined as archetypes, upon which more specific clinical models are based, within an agreed framework of ‘clinical model specialisation layers’.
- Recommendation 3: The CIMI reference model is fully documented in a format that promotes effective understanding by both clinical modellers and implementers. This documentation should include both example models and example instance data;
- Recommendation 4: A coherent modelling methodology is documented to ensure consistent models, including modelling style guides and best practice guidelines;
- Recommendation 5: The Archetype Object Model (and associated serialisations) is reviewed against requirements, and extended to fully express the semantic meaning of archetypes, (including the meaning of the relationship between nodes);
- Recommendation 6: Further investigation is planned to consider issues, such as the following:
- The syntax and use of terminology bindings for both the meaning and valid values of nodes in the clinical models;
- The semantic meaning between all structural nodes;
- The use of CLUSTER.value (including defining the meaning)
- Whether null_flavour (or similar) should be allowed on ENTRY or SECTION
- Whether further simplifications can be made to the reference model (e.g. demographics);
- Modelling methodology to ensure consistency of models, including the development of modelling style guides and best practices;
- Recommendation 7: The requirements of iso-semantic clinical models are explored further, in terms of both (a) the ability to transform CIMI models to/from iso-semantic representations in other languages/standards (e.g. CDA, openEHR, ISO13606, DCM, CEM), and (b) the ability to transform CIMI models between iso-semantic representations that use a different split between terminology pre-coordination and structure (Please refer to Appendix B).
- Recommendation 8: Appropriate tooling is developed and/or adopted, which allows clinical models to be created and is capable of generating ADL 1.5.
- Recommendation 9: Any relevant Intellectual Property issues relating to the CIMI reference model are addressed.
- Recommendation 10: A UML Profile is developed, in collaboration with the OMG, which allows CIMI models to be created in UML.
- Recommendation 11: The taskforces be reorganised to support the above activities
