Healthcare interoperability depends upon sound semantic models to support safe and reliable exchange of information. We argue that clinical information modelling requires a collaborative team of healthcare professionals, process and content analysts and terminologists and that ‘separation of concerns’ is unhelpful. We present six fundamental concepts that participants must understand to collaborate meaningfully in technology-agnostic information modelling.
