Term Abbreviation Definition
Archetype A re-usable, formal model of a concept expressed as a computable set of constraint statements, on an underlying reference model (URM).
Archetype Definition Language ADL ADL is a formal language for expressing archetypes. It provides a formal, textual syntax for describing constraints on any domain entity whose data is described by an information model (also known as the 'underlying reference model'). The ADL syntax is semantically equivalent to the AOM, and represents one possible serialisation of the AOM. The current version of ADL is known as 'ADL 1.5'.
Archetype Instance A single instantiation of data conforming to a specific archetype.
Archetype Object Model AOM The AOM is the definitive expression of archetype semantics, and is independent of any particular syntax. The AOM is defined as an object model, using a UML class diagram. It is a generic model, meaning that it can be used to express archetypes for any reference model in a standard way. Version 1.4 of the AOM was standardised in ISO-13606:2. The current version is known as 'AOM 1.5'.
Archetype Query Language AQL A declarative query language developed specifically for expressing queries used for searching and retrieving the clinical data found in archetype-based EHRs
CIMI Reference Model CRM The information model on which CIMI's clinical models (i.e. archetypes) are defined. Usage Notes: This reference model defines a rigorous and stable set of modelling patterns, including a set of complex data types and structural patterns (e.g. composition, entry). All CIMI clinical models will be defined by constraining the CIMI reference model.
Cardinality Constraint A limit on the number of instances of an element that can exist in a given relationship in a model examples: '0..1', '1..Many'
Class A class describes a set of objects that share the same specifications of features, constraints, and semantics.
Class Diagram A UML class diagram is a structure diagram that depicts packages, classes and objects, their relationships, constraints attributes and operations.
Classification An exhaustive set of mutually exclusive categories to aggregate data at a prescribed level of granularity for a specific purpose.
Clinical Data Repository CDR A data store that holds and manages clinical data collected from service encounters at the point-of-service locations
Clinical Document Architecture CDA The HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) is an XML-based markup standard intended to specify the encoding, structure and semantics of clinical documents for exchange.
Clinical Information Model CIM A representation of the structured clinical information (including relationships, constraints and terminology), that describes a specific clinical concept - e.g. a blood pressure observation, a Discharge Summary, or a Medication Order.
Clinical Information Modelling Initiative CIMI An initiative established to improve the interoperability of healthcare information systems through shared implementable clinical information models
Clinical Information Modelling Initiative Specification CIMI Specifications CIMI specifications are those specifications adopted or published by the CIMI, including the CIMI reference model, the CIMI constraint formalism, and the CIMI data types.
Clinical Model CM
Clinical Model Governance A set of policies and processes to safeguard and maintain the quality of clinical artifacts during identification, scoping, creation, storage, verification, maintenance, and distribution
Clinical Model Repository CMR A data store that holds clinical information models, and associated artifacts, in an agreed sharable format.
Clinical Model Verification The act of reviewing, inspecting or testing, in order to establish that a specification meets appropriate clinical safety and quality standards.
