    Yep. Love the spaghetti image. And once again, the solution is in the data. Smart mining, smart harvesting makes improvement possible. Thanks Chuck.

    Thank you Barry!

    By the way, love the “Is Your Data Frozen” on your home page.

    Reminds me of my “Frozen EHR Workflow” post!

    The more instrumented, malleable, and systematically improvable EHR and HIT workflow becomes, the better.

    The distinctive value of new process mining insights, to explore and quantitatively represent the organisational and patient context behind key reporting metrics (or KPIs) in health care is very interesting.

    This is particularly relevant in Australia, where we’re nearing a universal Activity Based Funding (ABF) schedule, and are on the way towards Performance Based Funding (PBF) of hospital activities through set, ‘efficient’ prices for services.

    The usefulness (or rather lack of usefulness) of traditional BI type KPIs within ABF and PBF programs, and within the performance improvement initiatives that will be required by health providers in order to provide services at the ‘efficient price’, is already well documented and discussed within a Health Economics and Health Informatics space.

    It’s exciting to now see the multidisciplinary convergence, around data/reporting/management/improvement issues in health care, and how new computer science methods (like process mining of EHR) can help plug knowledge gaps, empirically.

    Thanks for your blog posts chuck - they really help me to get my head around Health BPM, and solidify and communicate my own ideas/projects.

    Thank YOU, Andrew!

    I believe that Wil van der Aalst of BPM and process mining research fame…

    …is on sabbatical at QUT in Australia.

    Check out my interview with Prof. Aalst:

    Thank you for your kind comments and excellent insight!

    Good luck and please come back to tell us about your successes!
