Dear all,

Following Diego's email, I would like to also announce my successfully defended PhD thesis (on the 12th of February 2016):

This thesis explores ways of how openEHR can come into evidence-based practice via clinical practice guidelines. It covers the following in essence, amongst some other things:

-          It proposes a method for representing guidelines based on CARE_ENTRY types, the so-called Care Entry-Network Model.

-          It gives one of the first ever detailed accounts of how the openEHR-based Guideline Definition Language (GDL) works.

-          It conducts the first ever GDL-based study using patient data from a registry.

-          The latter effort, using the Safe Implementation of Treatments in Stroke (SITS) international patient data registry, leads to real clinical findings.
