    Novel information and communication technologies enable the construction of systems that allow the provision of new healthcare services anywhere, at any time, and to anyone. Since these healthcare systems may offer their healthcare records in different electronic formats, the openEHR foundation developed a dual model to achieve semantic interoperability between these systems. In this paper we propose an approach, based on the use of openEHR archetypes, for generating messages to be exchanged amongst heterogeneous systems in pervasive healthcare environments so that their interoperability can be guaranteed at the syntax and semantic levels.
