Context: Arden Syntax encodes knowledge as Medical Logic Modules (MLMs) to deliver clinical decision support (CDS). Prior work showed business processes are common in CDS knowledge bases (KB), but Arden lacks business process constructs. Objective: Assess the utility of Business Process Model and Notation 2.0 (BPMN) to represent business processes in MLMs. Methods: A corpus of 325 MLMs was examined. Result: BPMN was sufficiently robust to represent the business processes in an Arden Syntax KB.

Learning Objective: Attendees will be able to identify the constructs in the Business Process and Model Notation that can be used to represent business processes in the Arden Syntax.
