Before starting our tutorials on creating shareable clinical pathways, hopefully you have already read our post on A Vision for the Future of Workflow in Healthcare. If not, you should check it out to set the context of the standards we will use in these tutorials such as Business Process Model and Notation, Decision Model and Notation, Case Management Model and Notation, and Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources to create shareable clinical pathways. The models in these tutorials may be deployed and executed in our RO Dynamics platform, or in other commercial or opensource BPM tools. For more information visit our product page at https://quanteksystems.com.
In this series we will work with examples in the context of Radiation Oncology, which uses radiation to treat cancer. The goal is to help those involved in healthcare to understand how to read and create basic workflows using BPMN. Knowledge of radiation oncology is not required, but will make the workflows more interesting. We will start with simple workflows, and over time get more elaborate to handle the nuances of real-world workflows.
Often the best way to learn something new is by doing it. Perhaps the easiest way to get started is using the free web-based modeler at http://bpmn.io. To create a new BPMN model you may use this link: https://demo.bpmn.io/new. Alternately, you may download a free modeler such as the Camunda Modeler.
Let’s now dive in to creating shareable clinical pathways. As more tutorials are added, they will be accessible beneath for easy navigation.
