By NTSC specification, all certified EHR systems
must be able to output XML files in the CCR
(continuity of care record) format, so there is
already a standard for the data itself, with no
models imposed on the data.

Also, the RDF is just triplets. It doesn't say
who's model.  It is RDF of a SNOMED like or HL7
like or openEHR like  model? Does everyone make up
their own roles and nodes?  So saying it's RDF
leaves all the same problems we have now.  It's
not so much the representation as it is the

We'll still argue about whether we use SNOMED
roles, make HL7 rim classes and roles or openEHR
or something else.

Hello David,

I think life sciences have been early adopters for
a while so this may
be a bit of preaching to the converted :-) 

Not a single word about privacy and dangers in the
position statement ?
