The project is supported by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and partially financed with FEDER funds, within the call Retos-Colaboración from the State Program of Research, Development and Innovation Oriented to Societal Challenges, in the framework of the State Plan of Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation 2013-2016. (File RTC-2016-5824-1). The project has an approved eligible budget of 824,881.60 €.

In the last years, processes management as a mean to increase excellence and quality within the organizations is a world accepted fact. Health organizations are no exception, since processes management is key to guarantee adequate patient care and ease the work of health professionals in an environment where decision making is essential.

In this area, processes management is closely related to the term clinical guide, a text that supports professionals at decision making under specific circumstances. Nevertheless, due to the fact that these guides are presented as narrative texts and there is a lack of standardization among different health centres, along with the scarce interoperability between institutions, the implementation of such clinical guides on a software platform to support them all along their lifecycle (modelling, execution, monitoring, etc.) deems very complex.

Taking into account the context and problems mentioned above, the project aims at defining a working methodology based on the paradigm of model driven engineering (MDE), to manage clinical guides’ lifecycle and to develop a centralised, comprehensive and collaborative platform to provide real and practical support.

Thanks to this platform, health organizations will have the capability and control over their clinical guides, covering clinical processes, data sets and support rules for clinical decision making to enhance the performance of the health professionals. To demonstrate the practical viability of the project, both the working methodology and the platform will be validated in a real scenario with patients with Diabetes type 2.
