The Archetype Editor facilitates authoring of openEHR clinical and administrative archetypes in ADL 1.4 and XML format.
The editor is Unicode-enabled. It can work with archetypes in any language. The editor itself has been translated into several languages, including Danish, English, Farsi, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. If you would like to include another language, please let us know.
Archetype Editor is available for Windows only. .NET 2.0 or higher is required.
The source code can be accessed from the GitHub home page.
You need archetypes. Where you can get them:
Archetypes can be put anywhere on your file system.
One convenient way for clinical modellers with more of a technical bent to use the Archetype Editor is in conjunction with the ADL Workbench (AWB). There are two reasons you might want to do this: firstly the AWB provides a tool-based view of all archetypes, rather than the user having to rely on the file system explorer; secondly, the AWB provides ADL 1.5 validation of all archetypes. See the ADL Workbench help pages for how to configure this.
Detailed help pages for the Archetype Editor are under construction.
The best way to get help with the Archetype Editor and/or creating, viewing archetypes, is to post questions on the openEHR Clinical Mailing list.
Please report issues on the openEHR Archetype Editor problem report tracker (Jira). It really helps us to help you if you report a problem! Please try to note down the steps taken to reproduce the problem, which will greatly help us in fixing it.
