International Workshop on Process and Knowledge Management in Medicine

Opens internal link in current windowProf. Manfred Reichert is co-chair of the 8th Int'l Workshop on Process-Oriented Information Systems in Healthcare (ProHealth) and 7th Int'l Workshop on Knowledge Representation for Health Care (KR4HC). The joint Opens external link in new windowKR4HC’15/ProHealth’15 workshop will be held in conjunction with the Opens external link in new window15th Conference on Artifical Intelligence in Medicine (AIME 2015) in Pavia, Italy at June 20th, 2015.

Manfred Reichert shares this task with his colleagues Richard Lenz (University of Nurnberg-Erlangen), Silvia Miksch (Vienna University of Technology), Mor Peleg (University of Haifa), David Riaño (Universitat Rovira i Virgili), and Annette ten Teije (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam).

This joint workshop brings together two different aspects of IT support for healthcare: healthcare process support, as addressed in previous ProHealth workshops, and healthcare knowledge representation as dealt with in previous KR4HC workshops. Obviously, both aspects are closely related and can be viewed as two sides of the same coin, basically. The workshop shall elaborate both the potential and the limitations of the different approaches for healthcare process & healthcare knowledge management as well as clinical decision-making. It shall further provide a forum wherein challenges, paradigms, and tools for optimized knowledge-based clinical process support can be debated. We want to bring together researchers and practitioners from these different, yet similar fields to improve the understanding of domain specific requirements, methods and theories, tools and techniques, and the gaps between IT support and healthcare processes yet to be closed. This forum also provides an opportunity to explore how the approaches from the two communities could be better integrated.

Further details can be found on the Opens external link in new windowworkshop’s website.

BPM is not just about making diagrams. The real challenge is to realize information systems that support processes without jeopardizing flexibility.

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.

_ Albert Einstein

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
