Abstract

Growing volume of knowledge that needs to be processed and communicated leads to penetration of information and communication technologies (ICT) into biomedicine. Specialized tools for both algorithmic processing and for transport of biomedical data are developed. Proper use of ICT requires a proper computer representation of these data and algorithms. We have analyzed the openEHR archetypes in order to utilize openEHR formatted data in medical grid environments on the MediGrid platform. Both openEHR and MediGrid utilize the phenomenological approach to biomedical data; however the level of constraint placed by both systems on the concepts transported or processed data is different.
