Business Process Management for Healthcare (BPM+ Health) Industry Workshop

Building on over two years of collaborative engagement, the OMG has just launched the Business Process Management Plus (BPM+) Health community in September 2019, and this is the first major event since that launch.

Clinical healthcare providers have been challenged to leverage and disseminate evidence-based best practices at the point of care and serve an increasingly mobile patient population as it navigates among sites and institutions of care.

BPM+ Health is addressing these concerns head-on by leveraging of open, standards-based notations brought together under the umbrella of a style guide which allows professional organizations, clinical societies, and healthcare providers to document their care pathways and workflows in a way that allows them to be shared across organizational boundaries, more internally consistent than their predecessor formats, and more easily and accurately consumed by care providers.

The Object Management Group (OMG) is pleased to be able to partner with HL7 Australia to present this event, the first of its kind outside of North America.

Among the biggest challenges within the clinical health sector comes from the need to effectively disseminate and leverage evidence-based best-practices at the point of care, and to support transitions as an increasingly mobile patient population navigates among sites and institutions of care.

For Sydney, we’re bringing together several of the key early-adopter contributors to traverse this space, from making the business case behind the effort through to tutorials and walkthroughs of BPM+ based care pathways.  Using a hybrid of on-site and remote staff, this session will feature the key founders and early-adopter contributors from clinical professional organizations, healthcare providers, and vendors whom have been applying BPM+ to improve clinical care delivery, to advance evidence-based care practices, and to improve guideline compliance.

Session Descriptions

Advancing Evidence-based Care from “paper” to Practice: The role of HIT Standards and BPM+

The US Department of Veterans Affairs, in collaboration with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), did an industry analysis of HIT standards activities and their role in advancing the state-of-the-practice of evidence-based care.  The purpose of the activity was to determine the current state-of-industry, to identify conflicting and competing activities, to determine gaps and risks, and to support a path forward to better enable healthcare organizations and the technologies that support them to better support good evidence, based clinical practice.

This session will surface and navigate the findings of the AHRQ report with specific attention on the role played by process, knowledge, and data interoperability, and its implications to healthcare provider organizations.  Particular emphasis will be placed on the role of process interoperability, and how BPM+ addresses key gaps in the current health landscape, particularly involving handoffs of care. 

 

Using Semantic DMN to Represent the Logic for Clinical Scoring Tools

The Mayo Clinic has heavily emphasized the importance of developing care process models that reflect standardized, consensus-based best practices. Dissemination and adoption of best practices can be accelerated through incorporating knowledge into the workflow using enhanced decision support tools. Using OMG process standards to create software-consumable care process models can make advanced decision support scalable and sharable.

The Business Impetus for BPM+ Health and Clinical Case Studies

The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) represents more than 36,000 emergency physicians, emergency medicine residents, and medical students. ACEP promotes the highest quality of emergency care and is the leading advocate for emergency physicians and their patients, and the public. We continually strive to improve the quality of emergency medical patient care and treatment. Emergency departments are the gateway to hospitals and 24×7 acute unscheduled care, where 67% of hospital admission decisions take place and more than 46% of tests and procedures are ordered. With more than 2,000 clinical policies and practices supported in a diverse and stressful environment; learn how can shareable clinical pathways facilitate team-based, effective patient centered care. The presenter will share the vision and goals for disrupting acute care continuum through capture of knowledge in a data lake and the development and dissemination of evidence-based quality measures with data-driven quality improvement.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists during this session will demonstrate how the current BPMN, DMN & CMMN Antenatal care models developed over the past two years will be reviewed and lessons learned will be discussed. A subset of these models will be deployed to the Red Hat (JBPM) environment and executed. This demonstration will show how to take the BPMN, CMMN & DMN models to the next step and make them actionable.

BPM+ Health Community Vision, Overview, and Structure

Having formed as a formal “Community of Practice” in September, 2019, this overview will introduce the BPM+ Health community, the overarching goals and objectives, structure, and modus operandai of the community of practice.  The session will introduce the working communities under the non-profit organization, current priorities and plans, and provide a snapshot of work underway.

Highlights will include updates on:

  • Authoring Workgroup, which brings together practitioners from clinical specialties and subject expert that are interested in creating-new or translating-existing narrative documents (CPGs) into computer-consumable artifacts (societies).
  • Institutional Adoption Workgroup, with a focus on consumers of care pathways and guidelines whom are institutionalizing them into settings of care within health systems, academic medical centers, group practices, and so on.
  • Implementer/Vendor Workgroup, emphasizing software development activities realizing clinical pathways in executable software that can create, ingest, consume, and execute clinical pathways.
  • Methodology Workgroup, focused on the expression languages that are used to define care pathways, and on the techniques, style guidance, and best-practices for doing the modeling work.

Primer on the BPM+ Field Guide to Sharable Clinical Pathways

Over the course of approximately two years, the concept of creating a style guide to create pathways (clinical workflows, best-practices, etc.) in a format that is standards-based and sharable has been developed as the fruit of collaboration among a group of contributing stakeholder organizations. This “Field Guide to Sharable Clinical Pathways” will form the foundation for our newly-emerging community-of-practice. This session will provide a primer and tour of that artifact, touching on the highlights of the document and assisting attendees in more effectively navigating and utilizing that artifact.

Moving Professional Organisations to Curate Knowledge in the Coming Age of ML and AI:  Experiences from the American College of Surgeons

Dr. Frank Opelka, MD, FACS,

The American College of Surgeons has a strategic initiative to evolve from what historically has been paper-based guidelines to the digital age, and in so doing has been addressing how to represent this knowledge to retool to support emerging opportunities presented by AI and machine-learning.  This session will explore that journey, focused on how existing assets and techniques will adapt to address the new world.
