The paper presents a study of the application of ISO 13606 archetypes for HIS – LIS data exchange purposes. The archetypes defined a structure of laboratory tests. The archetype tests definitions were processed by a HIS to build a user interface for entering data that was required to correctly run the tests. The archetypes also contained LOINC codes in the ontology sections to provide semantic interoperability between a HIS and a LIS. The evaluation of the approach in the pilot project setting showed the feasibility of the approach.
