openEHR Artetypes into EA
« on: June 06, 2020, 12:50:42 am »
Hello
Fresh from the global summit and I've made some new friends - who share the same problem  :). It is:

How to import openEHR Archetypes into Enterprise Architect?

EA has an archetype modelling language MDG, so I was thinking it would be straightforward. Taking the example below of the blood pressure archetype, which you can download as XML or Archetype Description Language from https://www.openehr.org/ckm/archetypes/1013.1.3574/mindmap, the issues in importing into Sparx EA involve the top level nodes of <definition> and <onotology> being dependent, and then the top level nodes for <description> and *<translations> would map to being metadata for the core definition. Can we pull the definition of an archetype / template / model out of openEHR itself into JSON and import from that?

Has anyone done this before? Is this a job for eaDocX Excel importer or such like?

Any pointers or prior art would be glady received.

All the best

Matt

I think you would have to write a custom import feature.

I would be inclined to do that using an internal EA script, but you could also write an add-in or a standalone program if you wanted to.
