Summary "From the Foreword:"[This book] provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamental concepts in healthcare process management as well as some advanced topics in the cutting-edge research of the closely related areas. This book is ideal for graduate students and practitioners who want to build the foundations and develop novel contributions in healthcare process modeling and management."--Christopher Yang, Drexel UniversityProcess modeling and process management are traversal disciplines which have earned more and more relevance over the last two decades. Several research areas are involved within these disciplines, including database systems, database management, information systems, ERP, operations research, formal languages, and logic. Process Modeling and Management for Healthcare provides the reader with an in-depth analysis of what process modeling and process management techniques can do in healthcare, the major challenges faced, and those challenges remaining to be faced. The book features contributions from leading authors in the field. The book is structured into two parts. Part one covers fundamentals and basic concepts in healthcare. It explores the architecture of a process management environment, the flexibility of a process model, and the compliance of a process model. It also features a real application domain of patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration. Part two of the book includes advanced topics from the leading frontiers of scientific research on process management and healthcare. This section of the book covers software metrics to measure features of the process model as a software artifact. It includes process analysis to discover the formal properties of the process model prior to deploying it in real application domains. Abnormal situations and exceptions, as well as temporal clinical guidelines, are also presented in depth Pro."--Provided by publisher.
