eHaas is a national platform for personal electronic health records that is currently being rolled out in Australia. The design for the eHaas platform was provided by CAPSICUM, a semantic framework for strategically aligned business architectures. This presentation will demonstrate how a semantic meta-model was used to build a business architecture ontology that guided the functional and technical design of eHaas and will illustrate:

  • the CAPSICUM semantic meta-model and Jalapeno modelling environment for designing business architecture ontologies;
  • use of semantic technologies in a model-driven engineering approach to enterprise systems design and development;
  • semantic designs of conceptual and logical information models and service catalogs for a major technology platform;
  • alignment of conceptual information models and business service definitions to RDF schemas for several major health reference models (HL7, FHIR and National Health Data Dictionary);
  • mapping of logical information models and technical service descriptions to underlying health related business applications;

Dr. Terry Roach is the founder of CAPSICUM Business Architects, an Australian software vendor that has developed the Jalapeno semantic modelling platform. He holds a PhD from the University of New South Wales, where his 2011 thesis developed The CAPSICUM Framework, a semantic meta-model for the design of strategically aligned business architecture ontologies.
