On the 29th August 2019, Cecilia Mascia talked about the process of development of the first openEHR archetypes for genomic information, a series of detailed clinical models to support the semantic interoperability of data deriving from the sequencing of the entire genome and exome. The work is the result of a joint cooperation between the CRS4 and the HiGHmed Consortium from Germany, and was included together with other national experiences (Norway, China and Japan) in the panel describing how the openEHR Clinical Modelling Program leads and involves a community of clinicians, informaticians and implementers to develop detailed data specifications for clinical data.
MEDINFO brings together experts from the health and biomedical informatics world to promote the dissemination of current research and knowledge with the aim of improving health and well-being. The Congress is also an occasion to stimulate international cooperation between different professionals like physicians, researchers, teachers, etc. across national boundaries.
