Abstract: Objective: Create templates in OpenEHR through the modulation of existing electronic health records defined in OpenObsCare platform. Materials and Methods: Apply a 4 step process: select data fields already existent in OpenObscare; search both in openEHR and NEHTA clinical knowledge manager (CKM) for the archetypes that contain these data fields; create new archetypes when a data field doesn’t have an existent one in both CKM’s; develop templates from all the information gathered in the previous steps. Results: Development of 6 templates available online via http://joaomagalhaes.me/admission\_templates and 1 archetype (openEHR-EHR-CLUSTER.exam-vagina.v1). Discussion: The process of modulation from existent EHR to the openEHR was possible since the standardization of clinical concepts allowed the re-utilization of a lot of already existent archetypes. This speeds up the development process by defining earlier the domain knowledge necessary for the HIS. Some hurdles faced in the pr ocess were due to the necessity of translation of all the archetypes to use at a national level and also due to the lack of national wide accepted terminologies. As this process is eased by the robustness of existent archetypes, the creation of default obstetric templates validated by a special commission, would probably be advantageous since the interoperability and semantics standardization would allow effective transmission of information between all the health care agents. Conclusion: The modulation of admission data existent in the HIS OpenObsCare to openEHR was easier than the ”traditional” way of doing it which is by specifying requirements. This is due to the fact that a lot of the existent archetypes are already robust enough and the number of them is enough to represent several clinical concepts contained in the created templates.
