Business Process Management for Healthcare (BPM+ Health) Industry Workshop


Building on over two years of collaborative engagement, the OMG has just launched the Business Process Management Plus (BPM+) Health community in September 2019, and this is the first major event since that launch.

“Clinical healthcare providers have been challenged to leverage and disseminate evidence-based best practices at the point of care and serve an increasingly mobile patient population as it navigates among sites and institutions of care.”

BPM+ Health is addressing these concerns head-on by leveraging of open, standards-based notations brought together under the umbrella of a style guide which allows professional organizations, clinical societies, and healthcare providers to document their care pathways and workflows in a way that allows them to be shared across organizational boundaries, more internally consistent than their predecessor formats, and more easily and accurately consumed by care providers.

The Object Management Group (OMG) is pleased to be able to partner with HL7 Australia to present this event, the first of its kind outside of North America.
