Call for CKM Editors

Dear Jussara,


I’m in the process of putting together an edited text on Health Information
Governance to be published by IOS Press early 2013   (This means it will be
indexed in PubMed and available electronically by chapter).  Both Sebastian
and Koray have agreed to write a chapter each for this publication.  Given
your experience and the need for national governance in Brazil I would be
very pleased if you too could contribute to this text.  At the very least
I’m interested in collecting experiences that highlight the need for this as
well as the potential consequences when this is not done.   A few good
scenarios would be extremely useful.


By the way we (eHealth Education) is now offering the first SNOMED-CT course
online that complies with IHTSDO credentialing requirements. We would be
very happy to do the same for archetype development and maintenance, but
first we need to agree on sets of competencies to suit specific role
requirements.  It appears that the time has come to get together to develop

Dear Heather,


as you know Brazil has chosen openEHR as the model to represent clinical
knowledge and that Brazilian association of medical informatics is in a
process of hosting a healthcare content knowledge artifacts repository  to
be used in this and other EHR projects in Brazil. In order to do have a well
controlled environment,  we´re going to  create a methodology for the
governance of the whole process of publishing of archetypes and other
artifacts like term sets. One of the mains issues for us is to define clear
rules for  editing rights and  roles: who can add content, make submissions,
can edit exiting entries or reformulate content. We want that all artifacts
undergo a process of quality assurance and be certified by the clinical
community ( medical societies).


We intend also to provide training to healthcare professionals to be skilled
editors and mentors in the process of creating and implementing them, in the
same way IHTSDO is doing to help to build capacity  to extend and to enhance
both quality as also the capabilities of Snomed- Ct. All these activities
were described  in the clinical content program mind map that we discussed
recently and now that we have at least a new volunteer I think it´s time to
schedule a webconference among us.

Dear Heather:


Just in time for your email to arrive. I have finally had the chance to show
the dean of the School of Medicine,  the benefits of adopting OpenEHR as a
project  to be implemented by our University.


We have 6 public provincial hospitals (400 beds each) that serves our
students. I´ll be implementing a EHR in one of them. I have been committing
a small task force to begin modelling archetypes. 


I´ll be happy to assist as a CKM editor as well. Please let me know how I
can further help.


Dr. Domingo Liotta (h)


Director Cátedra Abierta 
de Bienestar Médica, Universidad de Morón
