Workflow management has been shown to be a promising approach to the support of a range of healthcare processes, with tools available for their formal specification, analysis and implementation. To further illustrate its relevance, we apply a workflow modelling approach to the specification and analysis of an anticoagulation monitoring protocol, illustrating a Petri Net-based solution using YAWL and Coloured Petri Nets. The selected scenario is representative of healthcare processes which have… 

Using Phase-type Models to Monitor and Predict Process Target Compliance

This work focuses on using phase-type process modelling to measure compliance with known targets and, inversely, determine suitable targets given a threshold percentage required for satisfactory performance.

Using Markov Models to Characterize and Predict Process Target Compliance

Markov models, or their extensions, have an important role to play in this work where the approach can be extended to include more expressive assumptions, with the aim of assessing compliance in complex scenarios.

Clinical Workflows - The Killer Application for Process-oriented Information Systems?

The paper uses the clinical domain to motivate and to elaborate the functionality needed to adequately support an advanced application environment and presents solutions for some issues based on the concepts elaborated in the ADEPT project.

From Guidelines to Careflows: Modelling and Supporting Complex Clinical Processes

This chapter describes the distinct theoretical frameworks which have grown up around Petri nets for workflow modelling and mathematical logics for guidelines and concludes that these offer complementary views of clinical processes and that a key research challenge is find a way of unifying them.

Business process modeling in healthcare.

In this chapter the application of business process modelling - using the Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) standard is described.

Computerization of workflows, guidelines, and care pathways: a review of implementation challenges for process-oriented health information systems

It is found that the development of systems supporting individual clinical decisions is evolving toward the implementation of adaptable care pathways on the semantic web, incorporating formal, clinical, and organizational ontologies, and the use of workflow management systems.

YAWL : yet another workflow language

This paper motivates the need for a new workflow language, specifies the semantics of the language, and shows that soundness can be verified in a compositional way.

From task descriptions via colored Petri nets towards an implementation of a new electronic patient record workflow system

Together, the EUC and the CWN are used to close the gap between the given requirements specification and the realization of these requirements with the help of an IT system, resulting in an operational IT system.

Conceptual alignment of electronic health record data with guideline and workflow knowledge

Design and Implementation of the YAWL System

This paper describes the implementation of a system supporting YAWL (Yet Another Workflow Language), and presents the architecture and functionality of the system and zoom into the control-flow, data, and operational perspectives.

A Methodology for the Creation of Integrated Service Networks in Outpatient Internal Medicine

A methodology based on value stream mapping (VSM) and collaborative sceneries has been created to examine different improving alternatives focused on the design of integrated service networks in outpatient internal medicine with the participation of two hospitals with mixed-patient type environment creating a positive impact on population’s health.
