I actually wrote to Jan Talmon about this when I was first aware of it
(30 Oct 2013) and gave him my opinion of the quality of the science in this paper (it wasn't very positive;-). His view was that I / we / someone should write a letter to the editor of IJMI in which the errors / shortcomings are discussed. I did not do this for lack of time, but I think it would make sense to still do this and/or write a much better paper on the topic, which could cover actual evidence and science being done in openEHR projects, Intermountain environment, and UPV projects as well.
