Abstract

Recent improvements to HIV care at the NHS Lothian Board have concentrated on a re-mapping of the processes involved in their existing Integrated Care Pathway (ICP), in order to incorporate improvements identified during the ICP implementation and consider new advances in care. Our work aims to extend and enhance this mapping by formalising care workflows using our logic-based tool WorkflowFM. This paper presents our progress to date in terms of methodology and initial findings concerning actors, resources and workflows involved in the first 3 months of HIV care for the Chalmers Sexual Health Centre. We argue that the resulting models and analysis could address some of the difficulties faced by units providing HIV outpatient care.
