Using BPMN to Model a Patient Safety Promulgation Service Based on a Clinical Process
Keywords:workflow management, web service, business process modeling notation
In this paper, we used business process modeling standards to enhance the development of a patient-safety promulgation process with a web service. A web service that is related to a work process is typically in an organization that has been designed, built and stored in a web service repository. The purpose of using a web service is that it can be shared with multiple functional units within an organization via an Intranet. This paper further develops this approach and discusses the use of a visual modeling language to describe a clinical workflow clearly. The final outcome is business process re-engineering and is presented as a business process modeling notation. The workflow management we designed integrates a process for each functional unit in the organization to customize the workflow requirements that suit their needs. 748 cases had been notified among 13 months, the system play its role well even when notify proceeding had been changed.
