CEN 13606-1 Reference model

The CEN 13606 reference model that underpins the exchange of EHR information. This model is an information model that contains a set of classes and attributes. The CEN 13606 approach is to represent the reference model as a set of unified Modeling Language (UML) diagrams. The outcome is a hierarchical model reflecting the hierarchical nature of real heath records. The 13606-1 reference model is composed of a number of classes which build on each other to provide the representation of an EHR extract. These classes include:

Using such a hierarchy an EHR extract can be built starting with elements and then successively grouping into items, entries, sections, compositions and folders.
