ACaPlan - Adaptive Care Planning


In the elder care domain, a very strong requirement is the meticulous documentation of all treatment activities for every patient. This legally binding obligation turns out to be very tiring for the nurses, takes away time that they could spend with their patients, and is error- prone as the documentation is typically done at the end of the work-day. To solve this problem we proposed the introduction of adaptive process management into the care domain, which constitutes a paradigm shift, as currently the planning and operation of elder care is data-centric, not process centric. The advantages of care as a process are (1) automatic documentation while care activities are carried out, and (2) the process per patient directly represents the treatment and thus makes it very transparent. In this demo we will show a fully integrated prototype that demonstrates flexible and adaptive processes management in order to plan and enact therapy plans in elder care homes. Leveraging process technology lets us access the wealth of tools and techniques available in this area, such as resource management through worklists, and process mining for assessing common treatment strategies.
