Generification in change: the complexity of modelling the healthcare domain
In this paper we explore the concept of ”generification” through a Model-Driven Development (MDD) approach. We claim that the concept of generification is in change as the MDD approach, exemplified by the openEHR framework, gives a network of voluntary clinical users a prominent role in the generification process. The customization is no longer ”in the hands” of the vendor, and needs to be formalized for the public healthcare service to take the ownership of the generification process and the standarization of clinical information. Empirically, we have followed the development of a new EPR system adhering to MDD methodology from 2012 to 2016.
