Meeting etiquette
Meeting Etiquette

  • Participants automatically enter the webinar in “listen only” mode. The organizer will then unmute all participants. We ask if you are not speaking to manually mute yourself

    • NOTE: VoIP participants have the ability to “Mute” themselves by clicking on the green microphone. However, if you would like to speak, only you can unmute yourself.

  • If you are dialing in using a telephone and NOT using the VoIP you MUST dial the audio pin in order for the organizer to unmute you – if you do not use the audio pin and just push # when prompted the Organizer cannot unmute you

Meeting etiquette continued
Meeting Etiquette CONTINUED

  • If you are calling from a telephone, please do not put your phone on hold. If you need to take a call, hang up and dial in again when you have completed your other call

  • This meeting is being recorded

    • Another reason to keep your phone or your VoIP on mute when not speaking

  • Use the “Chat” or “Question” feature for questions, comments and items you would like the moderator or other panelists to know.

13606 developments
13606 Developments

  • ISO standard since 2008 - 2010

  • 20 year developments in EU projects, Good European/Electronic Health Record

  • ISO Renewal process is underway

  • Designed using ISO 18308 Requirements for an EHR System Architecture

  • 2 precursor trial standards

  • Harmonised with ContSys, HISA


13606 history
13606 History

  • CDA is subset

  • CIMI RM is subset

  • Selected by EU as one of the Base Standards in Europe

  • Used by: England, Sweden, Spain, Andalusia, Ireland

    • Kind of used by: CIMI, Australia, Slovenia, Slowakia, Australia,


Cen iso 13606
CEN/ISO 13606

  • Scope: EHR-Communication

    • This part of ISO 13606 specifies the communication of part or all of the electronic health record (EHR) of a single identified subject of care between EHR systems, or between EHR systems and a centralized EHR data repository.

    • This part of the multipart series, ISO13606, is an information viewpoint specification as defined in ISO/IEC 10746-1[13]. This part of ISO 13606 is not intended to specify the internal architecture or database design of EHR systems.


Cen iso 136061
CEN/ISO 13606

  • New Scope:

    • From EHR-Communication to

    • Information Viewpoint for Interfaces


Cen iso 136062
CEN/ISO 13606

  • 13606 5 part standard:

    • Part 1: Reference Model

    • Part 2: Archetype interchange specification (Archetype Object Model)

    • Part 3: Reference archetypes and Term Lists

    • (Part 4: Patient Mandate (PMAC))

    • Part 5: Interface specification


Cen iso 136063
CEN/ISO 13606

  • Paradigms

    • Message paradigm:Implementation guide, IHE profile and testing is necessary

    • Two Level Model Paradigm (Reference Model, AOM -> ArchetypesSupports model driven approachNo need for Implementation guide and no need for IHE Profile and testing


Cen iso 136064
CEN/ISO 13606

  • Reference Model

    • Represents the global characteristics of health record components,

    • how they are aggregated, and the context information required to meet ethical, legal and provenance requirements.

    • This model defines the set of classes that form the generic building blocks of the EHR.

    • It reflects the stable characteristics of an electronic health record,

    • and would be embedded in a distributed (federated) EHR environment as specific messages or interfaces (as specified in Part 5).


Cen iso 136069
CEN/ISO 13606

  • Archetype

    • the formal definition of prescribed combinations of the building-block classes defined in the Reference Model for particular clinical domains or organizations.

    • An archetype is a formal expression of a distinct, domain-level concept, expressed in the form of constraints on data whose instances conform to the reference model.

    • For an EHR_Extract, as defined in this part of ISO 13606, an archetype instance specifies (and effectively constrains) a particular hierarchy of RECORD_COMPONENT sub-classes, defining or constraining their names and other relevant attribute values, optionality and multiplicity at any point in the hierarchy, the data types and value ranges that ELEMENT data values may take, and other constraints.

Mapping Review/Validation:Resources and Process

  • All harmonization/mapping work is done on Google spreadsheet:

    • Link:

    • Access: anyone with link

    • Privileges:

      • “View and Comment” – everyone with link (the one above)

      • “Edit” – selected
