Healthcare Business Process Management, Adaptive Case Management & Process-Aware EHR & Health IT Systems

The Future is Bright for Healthcare Business Process Management



I’m very, very cheerful and optimistic about more and more of this kind of technology, workflow engines, process definitions, workflow management systems, workflow automation, business process management, case management, these are all kind of mixed together in amalgam. I call it “healthcare business process management”.

Now, some people have a problem with the word “business” in healthcare and so you’ll also sometimes see healthcare process management or care process management but if you drill down and you look in the footnotes, you’ll typically see workflow engines, models, executable models of work. I’ve created a website at, for healthcare business process management dot com. Hope you’ll stop by. I’ve got lots of content there and links off to case studies and so forth.

My Next Speaking Engagement!
