This is a great example how clinical modelling starts by interacting with the clinicians. Heather is the OpenehrMOdellingWizard 😉 She leads the Modelling Programme in openEHR
There is a methodology that is pragmatically evolving from my experience in openEHR clinical modelling work over the past few years. It has developed in a rather ad hoc way, and totally in response to working directly with clinicians. The simplicity and apparent effectiveness – both for me and the clinicians involved – continues to surprise me each time I use it.
The clinical content specifications for specialised health records and care plans that we are building are being developed with a sequence of expert input and clinical verification:
- Identifying the clinical requirements and business rules in conjunction with a selected initial domain expert group;
- Broader abstract verification of the notion of ‘maximal data set’ for ‘universal use case’ during formal archetype review cycles;
- Contextual validation during template review by ‘on-the-ground’ clinicians; and finally, although to a lesser degree,
- Validation during mapping and migration of legacy data.
