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

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.

Building on over two years of collaborative engagement, the OMG will be launching the Business Process Management Plus (BPM+) Health community at their upcoming meeting in Nashville, TN in September. 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 goals of this new community are to:

  • Develop best practices around modeling and sharing clinical pathways, clinical guidelines, and other healthcare knowledge;
  • Promote the use of standards such as BPMN, DMN, and CMMN to produce deliverables to maximize their usefulness and shareability and to promote their adoption;
  • Cultivate a knowledge ecosystem devoted to improving national and international health by leveraging open and available industry standards to remove barriers to sharing knowledge;
  • Improve the precision and compliance with best practices, resulting in better implementations;
  • Seek collaboration with other standards developing organizations in the Healthcare industry.

This two-day event will feature several activities, including:

  • Role of BPM+ in clinical quality improvement
  • Presentations discussing findings from early trials using guidelines based on BPM+ standards
  • Adoption approaches about how to leverage BPM+ content in clinical systems
  • Launching BPM+ initiatives within your organization and the business case for doing so
  • Establishment of working groups within the community-of-practice to share experiences and priorities with peer organizations
  • Jump-start/Overview of BPM+ and how it is used

With invited speakers from the American College of Emergency Physicians, The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the US Department of Veterans Affairs, Mayo Clinic, and healthcare and technology vendors, please join us in Nashville for this exciting event.

Healthcare delivery produces outcomes that can and must be improved. Supporting care-related decisions and actions better with tools that 'make the right thing easy' offers great promise for enhancing population health, reducing costs, addressing provider burnout and improving patient experience. The AHRQ evidence-based Care Transformation Support (ACTS) initiative is bringing together scores of stakeholders from diverse groups to define such a highly desirable future state, and create and execute a roadmap for achieving it widely. This talk will describe the initiative, and the emerging recommendations for cultivating a robust knowledge-to-practice ecosystem that reliably delivers the right information to the right people in the right ways at the right times to optimize care processes and outcomes. ACTS implications for the BPM+ Workgroups will also be discussed.
