The problem list is a key facet of the digital patient record that has historically been difficult to curate. This paper presents an implementation of a contextual problem list using openEHR. It describes the modelling approach, key model elements, and how these are assembled to underpin a Problem Oriented Medical Record. Finally, it discusses issues associated with how problem lists may be used.
