Topics of the openehr-clinical list

Hi Pablo,

To be fair these recent discussions may have been about clinical modelling issues but most have not been engaging with clinicians.

The description of the list is: This list is for discussions about any clinical aspect of the EHR, including clinical design of archetypes.

I’d respectfully suggest that these recent emails mostly focus on the technical discussion and, unfortunately, will potentially alienate those who are not interested in ADL representation etc.

I too would appreciate if these discussions were moved to the Technical or Implementation lists.

Hi Silje, I think this is for me :)

I pick which list to send message to very carefully, trying to focus modeling methodologies and modeling tools on the clinical, and the rest on the technical.

Some issues clarified on the clinical list, have impact on tools and sometimes on the specs themselves. On those cases I try to clarify the clinical modeling aspects on this list, then raise related issues on other lists or raise JIRA issues for the SEC to review when it is spec related.

But I know there is a gray area, since each "thing" depends on other "things". If there is any specific on my messages that doesn't comply with some guideline, please PM to clarify.

Hi everyone,

I’ve seen a tendency lately that topics that at least to me seem to be of a technical nature are posted to the clinical list. These topics often generate a lot of discussion, which drowns out much of the discussion about the clinical aspects of openEHR. I realise that a lot of discussions will be borderline technical/clinical, but I still think a lot of them would better belong in the technical or even implementers list. If you’re unsure where to post something, may I suggest having a look at the description of each of the mailing lists at

Thanks everyone, and have a great summer to those of you in the northern hemisphere! 😎☀️
