Abbreviation: DCM
Definition: A Detailed Clinical Model (DCM) is an information model of a discrete set of precise clinical knowledge which can be used in a variety of contexts. DCMs provide the data element specification and attributes, including the possible values and types of the attributes, and where possible a model and technical implementation specifications needed to convey the clinical reality in a fashion that is understandable to both clinical domain experts and modelers.

Organizations that have begun specifying or using DCMs include HL7, Results 4 Care, ISO (13972), openEHR (archetypes”), and Intermountain Healthcare (“clinical element models”).
