LinkEHR® Studio

The LinkEHR® Interoperability Platform  allows creating an integrated and normalized view of the EHR of patients whose data are distributed among heterogeneous information systems. LinkEHR provides two basic functionalities.

  • Data normalization. LinkEHR Studio is a multi-model archetype editor that supports creating archetypes based on standards such as openEHR, ISO 13606, HL7 CDA, HL7 FHIR or CDISC ODM. LinkEHR can then use archetypes as the basis for data mapping and for the generation of data transformation programs.
  • Model sharing. LinkEHR Model Manager is a web application for the publication, management and governance of clinical information models and other semantic artefacts, including archetypes, templates, and their related documentation.
Template Designer

The Template Designer is the tool required for editing '.oet' (pre-ADL2) templates.
