Approaches such as ISO 13606 and openEHR aim to address data reusability by defining clinical data structures called archetypes and templates, based on a reference model. A problem with these approaches is that parts of them currently are rather difficult to learn. It can be hard to imagine what an archetype-based clinical system combined with modern terminology systems will look like and what consequences different modeling choices have, without seeing and experimenting with an operational system. This paper reports findings from a survey among openEHR learners and educators combined with observations of related openEHR mailing list discussions. The paper ends with an opinion piece, where we discuss potentially fruitful ways to learn, explore, and extend archetype-based EHR systems using visualization and examples.The findings highlight potential stumble blocks and solutions and should be of interest for both educators and self-learners.
