asked him why this sounds so much like openEHR archetypes
and why don't reuse this concept instead of creating a new
one (or at least renaming it). He told me "everyone want
his own standard", that was very sad.
that, what I see (and many people on that room that know
what is an archetype) is a validation of an important
figure on HL7 that archetypes work, do the job, and are
necessary for interoperability. So, I think HL7 is very
interested on archetypes right now.
hope that soon Mr. Hammond could do a presentation on
standarization that show the best of the breed instead of
reinventing/renaming the wheel.
With all respect to Ed (and he deserves a great deal), if in
sentences like the one you quoted above you replace 'everyone'
with 'HL7', the situation today starts to make more sense.
