Semantic interoperability of clinical standards is a major challenge in eHealth across Europe. It would allow healthcare professionals to manage the complete electronic healthcare record of the patient regardless of which institution generated each clinical session. Clinical archetypes are fundamental for the consecution of semantic interoperability, but they are built for particular electronic healthcare record standards. Therefore, methods for transforming archetypes between standards are needed. In this work, a method for transforming archetypes between ISO 13606 and openEHR, based on Model-Driven Engineering and Semantic Web technologies, is presented.
