The EN13606 Association has not submitted a full set of artefacts but produced in the document a description how all these requested information models can be expressed using the generc semantic pattern.

The complete document can be downloaded via the EN13606 Association WIKI.[22]

And the Association submits two sets of 13606 archetypes that constitute this generic semantic pattern. [23] and [24] These archetypes can be specialised to express any clinical information model.

Quality Criteria for Clinical Models

The following is a list of proposed quality criteria which can be used to guide the development and evaluation of CIMI clinical models:

  • Satisfy the URU principles
       *    Understandable (cohesive and coherently expressed), 
       *    Reliable & reusable (consistency), 
       *    up-to-date (currency) 
       *    useful (fit for purpose)
  • Clinically accurate
  • Clinically valid
  • Evidence based
  • Adequacy in expressing required clinical statement
  • Maintain contextual integrity (especially when transformed into isosemantic models or representations)
  • Maintain semantic fidelity (when transformed to isosemantic models)
  • Clarity and precision – minimizing/prevent potential for
       *     mis-interpretation
       *     Misuse or inconsistency in use
  • Complexity: suitable for easy implementation and prevent cognitively overloading users
