Pre-Proceedings of the 1st International Workshop on Process-oriented Information Systems in Healthcare (ProHealth'07)

Abstract

These pre-proceedings contain the presentations given at the 1st Int'l Workshop on Process-oriented Information Systems in Healthcare (ProHealth'07). Formal proceedings will be published in Springer's LNCS series. Process-oriented information systems have been demanded for more than 20 years and terms like "continuity of care" have even been discussed for more than 50 years. Yet, healthcare organizations are still characterized by an increasing number of medical disciplines and specialized departments that frequently only focus on their internal processes. The patient treatment process, however, requires interdisciplinary cooperation and coordination. The recent trend towards healthcare networks and integrated care even increases the need to effectively support interdisciplinary cooperation along with the patient treatment process. Recent studies discussing the preventability of adverse events in medicine recommend the use of information technology, since insufficient communication and missing information turned out to be among the major factors contributing to adverse events. Yet, there is still a discrepancy between the potential and the actual usage of IT in healthcare. This workshop focuses on research projects which aim at closing this gap. It shall elaborate both the potential and the limitations of IT support for healthcare processes, and discuss approaches existing in this context. The ProHealth'07 workshop deals with different topics related to process-oriented healthcare information systems, including the following ones: process modelling in healthcare, process oriented system architectures in healthcare, workflow management in healthcare, IT support for guideline implementation and decision support, managing flexibility and exceptions in healthcare processes, requirements for medical guideline and medical pathway support, process optimization in healthcare organizations and healthcare networks, process interoperability & standards in healthcare, process patterns in healthcare, and lifecycle management for healthcare processes.
