International Journal of Organisational Design and Engineering (IJODE), Vol. 2, No. 4, 2012

Abstract: Seamless integration of medical evidence and organisational requirements into clinical process management is a non-trivial and reoccurring task. This leads a search for strong methodological as well as IT technical support by large industrial companies and leading research teams. Contributions of information systems research - especially conceptual modelling theory - currently play a minor role in clinical process management. The present study provides indications why current approaches are not suitable for process management in clinical practice. In this article, we identify the necessary steps in clinical process management that suffer from a lack of methodological support. The paper addresses researchers and clinicians who wish to implement a life-cycle management process for their clinical pathways.
