Liebe KollegInnen,

ich darf Sie informieren, dass die Deadline für die ProHealth'09
Konferenz in Ulm wurde verlängert (Details: siehe unten).
Falls Sie also noch einen Beitrag zum Thema "Prozessunterstützung im
Gesundheitswesen" einreichen wollen, ist noch bis 22. Mai 2009 Zeit. 

Ausgewählte Beiträge des Worksohps werden in einem Special Issue des
Journals of Software Process Improvement and Practice publiziert werden.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Elske Ammenwerth

>  Workshop Goals:
> Healthcare organizations and providers are facing the challenge of
> delivering high quality services to their patients, at affordable
> High degree of specialization of medical disciplines, prolonged
medical care
> for the ageing population, increased costs for dealing with chronic
> diseases, and the need for personalized healthcare are prevalent
trends in
> this information-intensive domain. The emerging situation
necessitates a
> change in the way healthcare is delivered to the patients and
> processes are managed.
> BPM technology provides a key to implement these changes. Though

practitioners from

> The success of the first two ProHealth Workshops, which were held in

> Workshop Description:
> Enterprise-wide process-oriented information systems have been
demanded by
> healthcare institutions for over 20 years and terms like "continuity
> care" have even been discussed for over 50 years. Yet, healthcare
> organizations are currently using a plethora of specialized
> information systems and continue to focus on development of systems
> specialized departments that frequently only focus on their
> processes. Many of the successful existing information systems focus
> non-process oriented systems, such as imaging, drug order-entry,
> test result storage, storage of diagnoses and progress notes in
> medical records, alerts and reminders, and billing applications.
> Information systems and decision-support systems for managing patient
> processes, however, are still scarcely developed; most often only by
a small
> number of university-led teams. Such patient care management systems
> highly complex and pose many challenges: they require availability
> encoded data coming from different sources, flexibility in deviating
> the encoded process at the discretion of the physician user, and may
> a team of clinical users that together take care of a patient in a
> coordinated way.
> The recent trend towards healthcare networks and inte-grated care
> increases the need to effec-tively supp
ort interdisciplinary
> along with the patient treatment process. Recent studies discussing
> preven-tability 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
> events. Yet, there is still a discrepancy between the potential and
> actual usage of IT in healthcare.
> This workshop focuses on research projects which aim at closing this
> It shall ela-borate both the potential and the limitations of IT
support for

> Relevant topics include but are not limited to:
>     * 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
>     * Process optimization in healthcare organizations and
> networks
>     * Process interoperability & standards in healthcare
>     * Process patterns in healthcare
>     * Lifecycle management for healthcare processes
>     * Visualization, monitoring and mining of healthcare processes
>     * Context-aware healthcare processes
>     * Ambient intelligence & smart processes in healthcare
>     * Process mining and learning
>     * Compliance of healthcare processes
>     * Facilitating knowledge-acquisition of healthcare processes
>     * Integrating healthcare processes with electronic medical
> Submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of significance,
> originality, technical quality, and exposition. Papers should
> establish their research contribution and the relation to healthcare

> The workshop will also provide opportunity for demo sessions, where
> presenters can showcase advanced prototypes based on their research.
> Format of the Workshop:
> The workshop will comprise accepted papers, tool presentations, and
> keynote. Papers should be submitted in advance and will be reviewed
by at
> least three members of the program committee. All accepted papers
> appear in the workshop proceedings published by Springer in the
> Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series. There will
be a
> single LNBIP volume dedicated to the proceedings of all BPM
workshops. As
> this volume will appear after the conference, there will be informal
> proceedings during the workshop. At least one author for each
accepted paper
> should register for the workshop and present the paper.
> Paper submission:
> Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for presentation in
any of
> the areas listed above. Only papers in English will be accepted.
Three types
> of submissions are possible: (1) full papers (12 pages long)
> mature research results, (2) position papers reporting research that
may be
> in preliminary stage that has not yet been evaluated, and (3) tool
> Position papers and tool reports should be no longer than 6 pages.
> must present original research contributions not concurrently
> elsewhere.
> Papers should be submitted in the LNBIP format (
> http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-487211-0. The
> page must contain a short abstract, a classification of the topics
> preferably using the list of topics above, and an indication of the
> submission category (regular paper/position paper/tool report).
> Papers (preferably in PDF format) should be submitted electronically
> e-mail to Mor Peleg (morpeleg at mis.hevra.haifa.ac.il).
