Abstract: Managing costs and risks is an high priority theme for health care professionals and providers. A promising approach for reducing costs and risks, and enhancing patient safety, is the definition of process-oriented clinical information systems. In the area of health care information systems, a number of systems and approaches to medical knowledge and clinical processes representation and management are available. But no systems that provide integrated approaches to both declarative and procedural medical knowledge are currently available. In this work a clinical process management system aimed at supporting a semantic process-centered vision of health care practices is described. The system is founded on an ontology-based clinical knowledge representation framework that allows representing and managing, in a unified way, both medical knowledge and clinical processes. The system provides functionalities for: (i) designing clinical processes by exploiting already existing and ad-hoc med ical ontologies and guideline base; (ii) executing clinical processes and monitoring their evolution by adopting alerting techniques that aid to prevent risks and errors; (iii) analyzing clinical processes by semantic querying and data mining techniques for making available decision support features able to contain risks and to enhance cost control and patient safety.
