Workflow definition and execution

Asked by Flavio on 2010-07-20

Hi All,
I'm Flavio, PhD student in computer science at UFF. I'm researching computer-aided diagnostic models using openEHR clinical data reference model. My clinical domain of interests are dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Is there any suggestion or initial development related to workflow engine (definition and execution) model applied to clinical domain?
Best Regards,
Flavio.

Hi Flavio,

I have started a project here on Launchpad Multi-level Authoring of Guidelines (MAG) https://launchpad.net/mag to address this issue. However I haven't had an opportunity to work on it much lately. I do have some experience in this area and can tell you that there isn't much out there. There is a DSS mailing list on the openEHR website.
I suggest that you join the MLHIM Owners group and we can discuss MAG there. Maybe it will prompt me to get busier with it. :-) https://launchpad.net/~mlhim-owners

Basically I have some details to finish on the MLHIM 1.x specs and then we can move ahead with MAG.

Hi Tim,

There is a paper titled "Comparing Computer-interpretable Guideline Models: A Case-study Approach" by Mor Peleg. This paper compared six clinical guideline models: Asbru, EON, GLIF, GUIDE, PRODIGY and PROfarma. This paper was published in 2003.
Do you have any experience on such clinical guideline models?

I liked the initial proposal of GLIF. The GLIF model was designed on three layers. The third layer is responsible to communicate with other applications or data models, platform-independently and clinical data reference model. Unfortunately I haven't gotten to find out any further documentation. I think it was incorporated to HL7 stantards, being called as GELLO.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Flavio for more information if necessary.
