openEHR-clinical Digest, Vol 22, Issue 13

Hi Alvin,

In theory I agree but if the Board is going to certify it needs to
have an established governance and certification infrastructure, some
way of reviewing course content etc. All of that takes time and
resource, and doing it on a global basis with translation issues etc
is pretty demanding.

I'm not saying it could not or should not be done but I can only see
it happening if someone drives it as a business opportunity (and
risk). I think that is much more likely to happen at regional level
unless sufficient money can be generated to support a central
certification infrastructure, bearing in mind that establishing such
an infrastructure is an up-front requirement.

There are parallels with the Industry Group who want to establish
technical system and organisation accreditation. There is a good
business case for this since it helps prevent competitors unfairly
claiming openEHR compliance. As such the Group is prepared to
pump-prime and guide development of the accreditation requirements and
infrastructure, and I would expect a fair proportion of the Industry
group membership fees to be used for this purpose.

I am not sure that internationally there are enough economic drivers
to support something similar in Training. At national or regional
level this may be the case. The crunch will come when there is a more
competitive market, where clearly sub-standard or nominal openEHR
training is being offered by competitors.

An alternative approach might be for those of us who are offering
training to think more in terms of a an 'openEHR trainers' group,
effectively a trade association. That might allow more organic
development of 'assured' training programs.
