Dear Health IT Folks, Please Submit a Proposal to The BPM and Case Management Summit!

Every year more ideas and technology from the business process management and case management software industry show up in the health IT industry. (BTW “case management” has a different, though related, meaning in the workflow industry than the healthcare industry.) For example, I see more-and-more BPM/case management IT vendors and professionals show up at the annual HIMSS health IT conference (see my HIMSS14 and Workflow: Are We Making Progress Taking Business Processes Out Of Applications?).


At the same time, knowledge about healthcare workflows and unique workflow technology requirements must flow in the reverse direction, back into the BPM and case management industry. The very best way to transport knowledge is in a human brain.

So, I encourage all health IT workflowistas to submit proposals (250-word abstract by Feb 28th) to the upcoming BPM and Case Management Summit here in Washington DC. Last year I encouraged health IT folks to attend, presented myself, and we had a great reception from the workflow folks. Here’s a link to my trip report from last year, including my presentation archived as a Youtube video: BPM and Case Management: US Healthcare Wants You, But May Not Know It, Yet!

Here is this year’s call for proposals (just 250 words!):

(BTW, ignore, for the moment, any buzzwords that may appear unfamiliar. The workflow tech industry and health IT often have different terminology for similar topics. You could very well be engaged in a BPM/case management initiative, but simply call it something different!]

Who Should Submit?

Program Leaders Involved With BPM, Case Management, Analytics, Architecture or Similar Initiatives

Practitioners and Consultants Experienced With Designing and Delivering Adaptable and Innovative Solutions Demonstrating Superior User Experience

Subject Matter Experts Engaged in Dynamic Business Processes and Data-driven Knowledge Work
