ISO EN 13606 is a five part International Standard specifying how Electronic Healthcare Record (EHR) information should be communicated between different EHR systems and repositories. Part 1 of the standard defines an information model for representing the EHR information itself, including the representation of types of data value. A later International Standard, ISO 21090:2010, defines a comprehensive set of models for data types needed by all health IT systems. This latter standard is vast, and duplicates some of the functions already handled by ISO EN 13606 part 1. A profile (sub-set) of ISO 21090 would therefore be expected to provide EHR system vendors with a more specially tailored set of data types to implement and avoid the risk of providing more than one modelling option for representing the information properties. This paper describes the process and design decisions made for developing a data types profile for EHR interoperability.
