The development of these systems require careful design of clinical guidelines development, decision models, and reusable software components and appropriate computing infrastructures in the clinical environment. Currently, XML is the best choice for packaging data and information sharing, but there isn't a specific standard that fully provide interoperability with EHR.Conclusion: Ease of learning is one of the main issues in the guideline based EHR. Guideline must be designed that their use is simple so developers.
