Health BPM Pilot

Sponsored by an open community initiative under the auspices of the Object Management Group, this effort aims to demonstrate health workflows ported for enacted in multiple institutions. While initially predominantly focused on clinical workflow, this pilot effort does contain within scope workflows for non-clinical situations as well.

Health BPM Pilot Charter


First target is to demonstrate one health clinical workflow enacted in multiple institutions


  • R : Pilot Use Case Group
  • A : Early Adopter Participants (Consumers of the portable model)
  • C : Field Guide Group
  • I : BPM Health Community

Goals: Desired outcomes

  • Demonstrate feasibility of having portable health workflows
  • Portability of workflow documentation and state of WIP
  • Validate if BPMN, CMMN, and DMN are fit for purpose
  • Develop a project plan for an “Alpha” Pilot (Proof of Concept)


  • Two use cases so we do have particpants deadlock
  • Focus on health clinical workflow
  • Diagram first: Platform Independent Model (PIM) leading to enactment
  • Implementation later: Platform Specific Model (PSM) leading to automation
    • Then Iterate on this list for other use cases
    • Then iterate for workflow domains (Operational, Procurement, Administrative,..)

Here is an image of the scope of the models that comprise the Use Case (as of Sep 7, 2017)
