Keynote - Daniel Amyot

(10:30-12:00) "Modeling in Healthcare: Requirements and Clinical Processes"
Healthcare is an important domain where IT system users and developers are faced with many important challenges. Yet, little modeling/requirements research is being done to address the issues specific to that domain. In this talk, I will discuss the current situation of requirements engineering in healthcare, first globally and then based on my experience dealing with Canadian hospitals. Several healthcare-specific technologies will also be reviewed. I will then illustrate particular modeling challenges that exist in relation to clinical processes, including system architectures, real-time alerts and reporting, the dynamic management of interdisciplinary healthcare teams, privacy compliance, and predictive analytics. The conclusion will highlight several research opportunities for the MoDRE community.

Daniel Amyot

Daniel Amyot is Professor at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Ottawa, Canada, which he joined in 2002 after working for Mitel Networks as a senior researcher. He has over 160 publications related to his research interests in software engineering; requirements engineering with goals, scenarios and aspects; business process management; healthcare informatics; and regulatory compliance. Daniel co-edited all versions of the User Requirements Notation (URN) standard, and he also leads the development of an open-source Eclipse plug-in (jUCMNav) for the creation, analysis, and transformation of URN models. He has led and participated in many projects on different e-health, analytics, and real-time monitoring applications, in collaboration with several Canadian hospitals. Daniel is on the editorial boards of Empirical Software Engineering and of the Journal on Software & System Modeling. In 2015, he was also the General Chair of the 23rd IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference. He holds a Ph.D. and an M.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Ottawa (2001 and 1994), as well as a B.Sc. from Laval University (1992).
