Computer-based workflow is primarily concerned with the automation of business processes, in which documents, information, or tasks are passed from one participant or application to another for enactment, according to a set of procedural rules. Workflow activities and procedural rules used to manage the flow activities are identified by a workflow process definition. A workflow management system (WfMS) consists of software components to store and interpret process definitions, create and manage workflow instances as they are executed, and control their interaction with workflow participants and applications.
There is a need to integrate the various theoretical frameworks and formalisms for modeling clinical guidelines, workflows, and pathways, in order to move beyond providing support for individual clinical decisions and toward the provision of process-oriented, patient-centered, health information systems (HIS). In this review, we analyze the challenges in developing process-oriented HIS that formally model guidelines, workflows, and care pathways.
