The goal of shareable, executable clinical guidelines is both worthwhile and challenging. One of the largest hurdles is that of representing the necessary clinical information in a precise and sharable manner. Standard terminologies and common information models, such as the HL7 RIM, are necessary, they are not sufficient. In addition, common detailed clinical models are needed to give precise semantics and to make the task of mapping between models manageable. We discuss the experience of the SAGE project related to detailed clinical models.
