New Book on Process Support and Knowledge Representation in Healthcare http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/186-new-book-on-process-support-and-knowledge-representation-in-healthcare http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/186-new-book-on-process-support-and-knowledge-representation-in-healthcare

Opens internal link in current windowManfred Reichert is co-editor of a new book on process support and knowledge representation in healthcare. This Springer book has been published in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. It comprises thoroughly refereed and revised papers from the BPM'12 Joint Workshop on Process-Oriented Information Systems and Knowledge Representation in Health Care (ProHealth'12 / KR4HC'12), which was held in Tallinn, Estonia, in September 2012.

Background Information

Healthcare organizations are facing the challenge of delivering high quality services to their patients at affordable costs. These challenges become more prominent with the growth in the aging population with chronic diseases and the rise of healthcare costs. High degree of specialization of medical disciplines, huge amounts of medical knowledge and patient data to be consulted in order to provide evidence-based recommendations, and the need for personalized healthcare are prevalent trends in this information-intensive domain. The emerging situation necessitates computer-based support of healthcare process & knowledge management as well as clinical decision-making.

The ProHealth'12 / KR4HC'12 workshop brought together researchers from two communities who have been addressing these challenges from two different perspectives. The knowledge-representation for healthcare community, which is part of the larger medical informatics community, has been focusing on knowledge representation and reasoning to support knowledge management and clinical decision-making. In turn, the process-oriented information systems in healthcare community, which is part of the larger business process management (BPM) community, has been studying ways to adopt BPM technology in order to provide effective solutions for healthcare process management.  Adopting BPM technology in the healthcare sector is starting to address some of the unique characteristics of healthcare processes, including their high degree of flexibility, the integration with EMRs and shared semantics of healthcare domain concepts, and the need for tight cooperation and communication among medical care teams.

International Workshop on Process and Knowledge Management in Medicine http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/146-international-workshop-on-process-and-knowledge-management-in-medicine http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/146-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).

Abstract:
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.

BPM Workshop on Process-Oriented Information Systems in Healthcare (ProHealth’14) http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/145-bpm-workshop-on-process-oriented-information-systems-in-healthcare-prohealth-14 http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/145-bpm-workshop-on-process-oriented-information-systems-in-healthcare-prohealth-14

Manfred Reichert is co-organizer of the 7th Int’l Workshop on Process-Oriented Information Systems in Healthcare (ProHealth’14), which will be held in conjunction with the 12th Int’l Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2014) in Haifa, Israel at 8 September 2014 – the BPM conference series provides the most prestigious forum for researchers and practitioners in the BPM field. Manfred shares this task with his colleagues Mor Peleg (University of Haifa, Israel) and Richard Lenz (University of Erlangen-Nurnberg).

About the Workshop

Healthcare organizations are facing the challenge of delivering high quality services to their patients at affordable costs. These challenges become more prominent with the growth in the aging population with chronic diseases and the rise of healthcare costs. High degree of specialization of medical disciplines, huge amounts of medical knowledge and patient data to be consulted in order to provide evidence-based recommendations, and the need for personalized healthcare are prevalent trends in this information-intensive domain. The emerging situation necessitates computer-based support of healthcare process & knowledge management as well as clinical decision-making

BPM technology provides a key to implement these changes. Though patient-centered process support becomes increasingly crucial in healthcare, BPM technology has not yet been broadly used in healthcare environments. This workshop shall elaborate both the potential and the limitations of IT support for healthcare processes. It shall further provide a forum wherein challenges, paradigms, and tools for optimized process support in healthcare can be debated. We want to bring together researchers and practitioners from different communities (e.g., BPM, Information Systems, Medical Informatics, E-Health) who share an interest in both healthcare processes and BPM technologies.

The first six ProHealth Workshops were held in conjunction with the 5th, 6th, 7th, 9th, and 10th International Conferences on Business Process Management (BPM’07, BPM'08, BPM'09, BPM'2011, BPM'2012), and in conjunction with the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine conference (BPM'2013); the last two ProHealth workshops were unified with the Knowledge Representation for Healthcare workshop, in order to bring these communities of BPM and AI in medicine closer together. The great success of the past 6 workshops demonstrated the potential of such an interdisciplinary forum to improve the understanding of domain specific requirements, methods and theories, tools and techniques, and the gaps between IT support and healthcare processes that are yet to be closed.

Further details and the call for papers can be found on the workshop's website.
