ITAB: Designing clinical paths with BPMN

We use the Signavio Process Editor because it fully supports BPMN. The possibility to transfer paths beyond the boundaries of hospitals is unbeatable and creates a true advantage, because the models are designed in a platform-independent way using the Signavio Process Editor.

Clinical paths show how patients are to be treated through diagnosis and therapy in the presence of a certain disease. Thanks to professional modeling methods such as BPMN, paths can be simulated before their implementation in hospitals and they can serve as documentation of the treatments.

This allows for approximations regarding resource utilization, cost and delays. Thanks to standardized methods the exchange of paths between hospitals is possible for the first time. Costly path design tasks can be sped up through reuse and quick adaption.
