However, these standards are usually not domain-specific but general purpose.The healthcare sector however, due to its characteristics, seems to require a domain-specific modelling language, which provides domain-specific constructs and is easy to use and to understand. This has also been agreed by several researchers, who developed a domain-specific modelling language for healthcare to provide better support.
