Clinical Processes – The Killer Application for Constraint-Based Process Interactions?


Abstract. For more than a decade, the interest in aligning information
systems in a process-oriented way has been increasing. To enable operational support for business processes, the latter are usually specified in
an imperative way. The resulting process models, however, tend to be too
rigid to meet the flexibility demands of the actors involved. Declarative
process modeling languages, in turn, provide a promising alternative in
scenarios in which a high level of flexibility is demanded. In the scientific
literature, declarative languages have been used for modeling rather simple processes or synthetic examples. However, to the best of our knowledge, they have not been used to model complex, real-world scenarios
that comprise constraints going beyond control-flow. In this paper, we
propose the use of a declarative language for modeling a sophisticated
healthcare process scenario from the real world. The scenario is subject to
complex temporal constraints and entails the need for coordinating the
constraint-based interactions among the processes related to a patient
treatment process. As demonstrated in this work, the selected real process scenario can be suitably modeled through a declarative approach.

This work has been published in the proceedings of the 30th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE’18). GGS Class 2.
