In that case, I suggest a starting point is to dig out the original article and come up with a framework /headings for an article that properly addresses the same questions, providing evidence from the many projects around the place (I meant to mention Linkoping, and I see Mikael Nystrom has chimed in). I would suggest an off-list email loop for this.

Hi all,

Being myself pretty "ontology based", and maybe more prone to understand what Blobel meant (understanding isn't approving ;-) ), I would be glad to be part of this group writing process.

Typical question that could be asked, since we all "tell stories" in natural language by making sentences made of words arranged according to a grammar (but grammatical concepts are nowhere inside our sentences), is why should we need an external structure such as the one present inside the Archetypes to "tell a patient health journey"?

Answer may be that there is no universal/commonly agreed ontology and "grammar"... but the structure that compensates for this as a "grammatical exoskeleton" could appear somewhat dated would the web 2.0 provide patient centered languages.
