Welcome to the Advanced openEHR Clinical Modelling Course!

This course has been created in co-operation between Rosaldo Oy and freshEHR Clinical Informatics Ltd. Dr lan McNicoll, Heidi Koikkalainen and David Jobling from freshEHR have been responsible for preparing the Course materials and are also acting as the facilitators on this course. lan is the Director of freshEHR and has been working in health informatics for over 30 years. Heidi and David have been working as openEHR clinical modellers since the beginning of 2020.

If you study this Course together with a team, active communication with the other participants as well as with the facilitator is encouraged during your study. Chatting, commenting and asking questions will help you digest and analyze the topics from several viewpoints. If you study this Course alone, you have the chance to address your comments and questions to the facilitator.

You can also receive a certificate for completion of the Course.


The Course will give you a deeper insight into the openEHR clinical modelling approach and teach you how to use the key tools to build archetypes and templates. We use an example use case to work through the modelling process step-by-step and ur, illustrate it with practical exercises. During the course you will learn about the principles of archetype reuse, how to build templates, and how to modify and develop archetypes.

Furthermore, the course will give an overview of the archetype review and publication process. After completing the course you will have learnt to use the key clinical modelling tools and gained an understanding of the openEHR clinical modelling process and the steps that it involves.

Learning Path

The content of the Course and the facilitator are introduced in this part. You will also find general instructions regarding navigation and active participation in the Claned eLearning environment
This part introduces the tools that are used in this course – the Clinical Knowledge Manager (CKM), Archetype Designer and XMind. We give a demonstration of the tools and explain what clinical modellers use them for. You will be guided how to get started with the tools through practical exercises.
In this part we introduce an example use case that we will work through during the Course. You will learn about the first step in the clinical modelling process: gathering information and determining the data items to be modelled. We explain the importance of this step and demonstrate it through the example use case.
In this part you will learn about the main principles of archetype reuse and how to find existing archetypes on the CKM. Through the example use case, we explain how to map data items to existing archetypes and identify any gaps where archetype modification or development may be required.
In this part you will learn how to reuse archetypes that are on the openEHR CKM. We will guide you through the process of exporting archetypes from the CKM and importing them to the Archetype Designer to be used in the next step.
This part provides an overview of how to build a template by using the archetypes we imported from the CKM in the previous step. You will learn how to create a new template, add archetypes to the template, and adjust the archetypes to fit the example use case. We also explain how to use external codes or terminologies and how to export templates from the Archetype Designer.
In this part we discuss how to modify existing archetypes if new requirements have been identified for specific use cases. We explain the different ways of modifying or extending archetypes and discuss the benefits and challenges involved.
In this part we will guide you through the archetype development process through a practical example. You will learn how to create a new archetype on the Archetype Designer, add data elements, clusters and slots, and how to export archetypes. We discuss the metadata to be added in the header section and how to make sure that your archetypes follow the general openEHR style guides.
This part gives an overview of the archetype review process and explains how archetypes get published on the CKM. We discuss how to suggest a new archetype and initiate the review process on the CKM. You will learn how to take part in reviews and how to collaborate with the wider openEHR clinical modelling community.
This concludes the most important takeaways from the training. As mentioned, you can also get a certificate of completion!
