AMIA2014 Workflow Poster (Tuesday) Workflow-based modeling of cancer care trial protocols

(Quotes from 2014 AMIA proceedings that interest me due to workflow-related implications: Take me to my Workflow-Related #AMIA2014 Papers and Posters rationale!)

5:00 PM Tuesday

“A large number of cancer patients are treated in the context of clinical trials, for which free-text evidencebased protocols aiming at standardization of care delivery exists. We propose a workflow-based representation model for cancer trial protocols, so that information relevant to each active process can be directed to the intended role. This modelling approach enables monitoring patients with respect to the protocol-based care path, as well as retrospective analysis of care process to understand deviations and sources for delays and bottlenecks.


Domain-specific processes, their order, dependencies, resources and events were represented using business process modeling notation (BPMN) and checked with clinicians for validation. Using BPMN CCTPs can be intuitively represented as collection of linked processes in their context such as resources, communications, events that can occur such as errors, exceptions, delays, local adaptations and activity or entity states.”
