The ascendance of clinical modeling on the international informatics agenda
should be supported. The ground work done by the openEHR Foundation has
shown prescient leadership. I will attend any tutorial or presentation
related to this at MedInfo 2013. The last session at the  Cape Town MedInfo
helped spawn a national initiative to  achieve clinical information and
process standards for the eMR domain in Canada.


Best to all

Last year I attended a Congress in Argentina which pogram was organized
according the preferences of the potential attendees gathered months before
through a social network. Verey web 2.0, very openEHR. e also had
difficulties in approving panels and workshop related to this theme before
in our national congresses, we´re never in the main room, but this year our
workshop was by far the most attended. Lots of young  clinicians, Y
generation, many of them working on mhealth  startups, ipad EHRs,clinical
decision support systems, health social networks and other health 2.0
initiatives, all of them knowing exactly the value of the bloody data. Times
are a changing, and fast.  Scientific committees os Informatics Congresses
also have to enter the 2.0 era and interact more timely with the audience.
I´m sure our workshop would be a blast and would attract a new audience to
the congress, which is this new generation. They are not informaticians,
they are naturals....

Let’s see if they’ll reconsider. Worth a try!

Dear Sir or Madam,


Given that our submission was rejected on the grounds that it was more
suited for a different format and not for lack of merit, is it possible for
this to be reconsidered as a tutorial?


This approach that we wish to share is gaining significant international
traction and in all other conferences attracts significant interest. In
fact, at MIE in Sweden our workshop on openEHR was the only one to achieve
sufficient registrants to actually run.


I would respectfully ask your committee to reconsider our proposal,
specifically because of the reviewers comments re needing a different
format, not that the proposal was not of use or interest. I also note the
reviewers specifically point out the strengths of the proposal coming from a
panel of very experienced implementers and a clear educational purpose.


Many thanks for your reconsideration,




Heather Leslie

MEDINFO 2013 - Decision on Submission ID MEDINFO-946

12th March 2013


Dear Dr. Heather Leslie,

Thank you for submitting your contribution entitled The international impact
of openEHR clinical content models (Id=946) to MEDINFO 2013, the 14th World
Congress on Medical and Health Informatics to be held from August 20-23 2013
at the Bella Center, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Medinfo 2013 received a very large number of submissions, with more than 500
papers and more than 200 posters. All submitted papers were reviewed by a
minimum of two reviewers and members of the Scientific Program Committee
(SPC). All submitted posters, workshops, panels, and scientific
demonstrations were reviewed by members of the SPC. Given the constraints of
the limited meeting length and space, and the high quality of the
submissions, the SPC was forced to make some difficult decisions this year.

Unfortunately, your submission was not accepted for the conference program.
We appreciated your submission; comments from the reviewers are listed below
and we hope that they are informative and helpful.

MEDINFO 2013 Decision: Not Accepted

We hope that you can still join the international biomedical informatics
community at MEDINFO in Copenhagen. The early bird deadline is April 15,
2013. You can register and get additional information about the conference
program, tutorial, on-site program, etc. at: www.medinfo2013.dk

Warm Regards

Dominik Aronsky & Tze-Yun Leong, SPC Co-chairs

Reviewers' Comments

This proposal is more suitable for a tutorial. The authors do not clearly
describe audience engagement strategies.THe strengths come from a panel of
experimented implementers of openEHR archetypes and a clear educational
purpose, but it lacks methodology to encourage attendees to interact with
the presenters.
