Model-Driven Development (MDD) techniques allow ultimately reducing software development costs by means of automatic code synthesis. Clinical data models aid in the application of MDD techniques to the domain of Health Information Systems (HISes); however, they are not so effective when used alone for the synthesis of a specific HIS since the transformation processes that MDD techniques employ usually need information about the system's overall architecture. Herein, we present a method that combines clinical data models and architecture models. We apply such method to the synthesis of graphical user interface (GUI) skeletons for HISes, illustrating its potential to reduce the amount of transformation process specifications, which is a costly MDD activity.
