Clinical Information Modeling Initiative (CIMI)

The Clinical Information Modeling Initiative (CIMI) is an ad hoc group of data modelers that are attempting to enumerate the detailed models of hundreds to thousands of medical ideas to achieve consensus among clinicians. It plans to make detailed clinical models freely available as unencumbered intellectual property. They could be used as components to define standard messages or structured documents, as components of clinical rules, and to automate or facilitate constructing data entry or reporting templates.
