bpmNEXT 2015: Process Discovery and Analytics in Healthcare Systems presented by Robert Shapiro, Process Analytica
Advances in computational science afford an opportunity to significantly improve the effectiveness of process improvement in healthcare systems. Relevant technologies include process mining/discovery, formal modeling languages, simulation and specific analytic and optimization methods. These new capabilities address two key process improvement challenges: accurately understanding the current state of affairs and designing optimal solutions. Capturing the current “as is” process is an important, albeit costly, time consuming and notoriously error-prone task – so error prone that many projects are inclined to skip the activity altogether. Process mining overcomes these difficulties by automatically capturing actual events from information system logs and synthesizing them into formal process models with execution statistics based on historical information. New tools now available offer these advances. We will illustrate some of the new technology with a tool which assembles these capabilities into an integrated application. It is designed to complement most process improvement approaches and most of the software tools that support them.
Robert Shapiro is president of ProcessAnalytica. He founded CapeVisions and MetaSoftware. Robert has been instrumental in the creation and evolution of XPDL and BPMN. In his recent work he has created a workbench for process optimization, using Visual Analytics and ‘hypergraphics’ to integrate process modeling, simulation, analytics and optimization. Hartmann Genrich and Robert Weerts also contributed to the work presented at bpmNEXT 2015.
