Ocean's Archetype Editor is a client-side open source tool used by expert clinicians to develop archetypes for use in both point-of-care and research settings.

It supports the openEHR Archetype Definition Language (ADL) in an intuitive drag-and-drop interface, and uses a generated GUI mock-up to help users visualise the meaning of the archetypes they create.

Using the Editor, Archetypes can be created for any openEHR information concept, including Composition, Section structures, various types of Entry: Observation, Evaluation, Action, Instruction, and Admin Entry.
