Hi Matic,

Nice comments. The openEHR world is starting to pick up pace...

I work for Ocean Informatics on openEHR projects and am in Ljubljana doing some training with one of your vendors next week (29th - 1st October. I am not sure whether I will have much free time but it might be interesting to meet up if you had some time free.
