Medical best practices as core BPM processes
Widely recognized and used standard protocol (beginning with INTERACT and TOKEN) are currently being followed (operationalized) in many different ways, including using paper checklists and inflexible applications developed with platforms such as medical records systems. The variability in the implementations perpetuates inconsistent and costly patient outcomes. Learning Health is specifically addressing the challenge faced by skilled nursing facilities with elderly patients. By creating a core BPM process that is in accordance with accepted protocol and medical best practices, and being able to customize it to local institutional needs, Learning Health is merging the process with access to the specific data needed by each end user (medical staff) at each step.
