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.
"Even with no prior experience with Bonita BPM, with some training I was able to develop an executable first proof-ofconcept process. When we showed the initial prototype to our partner, he was impressed with how quickly we were able to put it together."
"With Bonita BPM, we are able to structure a data model that is interoperable, following FHIR standards, a federal standard that is accepted by the national community. We are not creating a closed, unique system. We are applying informatics expertise to pull in distributed data from many sources. Bonita BPM is elegantly designed to be able to use that data in a business process, to help health care professionals make good decisions."
"I think my appreciation for harmony, notes & chords really helps me (metaphorically) with mapping business needs, processes, data relationships and technical designs. To me, it is like being a composer, orchestrating how elements connect or relate to one another. With Bonita BPM, the more I learn how its functions depend on each other, the more it is like playing music, which also has its own ‘language'."
