# FOLDERs support for clinical research

## Description

Currently FOLDERS need to be referenced by an EHR with a 0..1 relationship.
In use cases such as HiGHmed and LHS-Norway patients need to be grouped in cohorts that are assigned to a specific research study. For this FOLDERs need to contain EHRs and not the other way around. Therefore a FOLDER may "contain" (i.e. reference via object_ref) many EHRs.

We need to determine if the RM should be modified for allowing independent FOLDERs to be created without belonging to a EHR or define a separate class that allows for doing so.

FOLDERs are part EHR, so as you mentioned it will not work. Is it perhaps an options the newly discussed TAGs (RM 1.2.0) that would point to FOLDERs ?
