    Nowadays, a lot of documents in healthcare are still hard copies, which cause many issues during use. There are cases in which software solutions are used, but general issues with sharing those documents and data still occur. Slovenian national project e-Health with interoperable spine tries to resolve those issues. In this thesis, one learns about OpenEHR specification, which is the base for architectural development of interoperable spine and for the Think!Ehr PlatformTM. Introduction includes the mentioned platform and application Think!Clinical, which implements archetypically connected entry forms regarding patient observation, saving data, which was entered with those forms, and uses the collected data for a simple analysis of the patient’s state based on the body mass index, which is of great help to doctors in the Pediatric Clinic of Ljubljana University Medical Centre. For easier work, tools such as “form builder” and “form renderer” were used. In the development process, it can be noticed how quick one can embed a simple entry form in such a large healthcare application. It has come to knowledge, how important it is to make software products as broad as possible, so they can be used in combination with different software and hardware. This feature applies mostly to clear API-s on Think!Ehr PlatformTM and “form renderer” as well as to our implementation of forms, which now works in the desktop and also web application Think!Clinical.
