Abstract

Operationalizing care delivery through an interdisciplinary healthcare team (IHT) requires knowledge about the overall structure of an IHT and the behavioral rules that "control" the dynamics of this structure interpreted as team and clinical leadership maintenance and task allocation. While progress has been made in understanding IHT structure, there is less work on the behavioral aspects of an IHT associated with its dynamics. In this paper we fill this void by extending our Team and Workflow Management Framework (TWMF) with a set of rules to operationalize IHT behavior in terms of clinical leadership, coordination of workflow execution over multiple days as part of continuity of care, and management of tasks, including urgent ones that prevent planned workflow execution. We briefly describe a proof-of-concept implementation of extended TWMF in the form of a computer system for supporting cooperative execution of clinical workflows by an IHT. The system is built on top of an existing business workflow execution engine and employs behavioral rules to control the IHT behavior. We also illustrate the operations of TWMF in a case study where an IHT is executing a workflow for the management of post-operative inpatient recovery after radical prostatectomy.
