PHQ-9 Automatable Guidelines


Assuring high-quality care and best-practice support across VA facilities and community care providers necessitates compliance with good industry clinical practices. The challenge is that Clinical Practice Guidelines are authored in natural language, using different approaches and styles, and are often ambiguous or incomplete. The result is that different readers have differing interpretations of what is being communicated, leading to difficulty in implementation, inconsistencies, and poor or erroneous adoption.

The BPM+ family of standards addresses these concerns through the use of formal expression languages, allowing for the visual capture/depiction of activities of care workflows and the logic of clinical decisions using intuitive and unambiguous visual notations. The result are clinical guidelines (also referenced as “shareable clinical pathways”) that are more effectively authored, consumed, and implemented than their natural language counterparts. Moreover, these artifacts can be directly consumed by systems in both simulation or production, reducing ambiguities and interpretive errors.

A shareable clinical pathway for anemia management


While anemia is a common condition, it can be challenging to address because of its multifactorial and complex nature. As a result, diagnosis and management for some patients may be suboptimal. According to the Royal Society of Medicine, anemia is in many cases poorly assessed or not investigated and there are currently no defined national guidelines on management pathways.

A shareable clinical pathway is a visual model that is both human readable and machine automatable. Such a standardized process can improve the efficiency and quality of anemia treatments through improved workflows and better clinical decisions. Automation allows routine tasks to be handled effectively, leaving more time to address complex cases, while the visual representation enables the transparency needed for all stakeholders to understand what has happened and why.

Trisotech the Disruptor!


Trisotech is disrupting the Healthcare Information Technology Market by empowering the development of visual shareable clinical guidelines and pathways to tear down the wall that exists between clinicians and informaticians. To enable this disruption, Trisotech offers clinicians a simple to use modeling environment where workflows and decision logics are visually created by the Subject Matter Experts (SME) themselves. This puts clinicians squarely at the heart of the solution.
