Conceptual Modeling of the Healthcare Ecosystem

faced by healthcare systems

New paradigms in healthcare

Conceptual modeling and system engineering

Digital Healthcare Ecosystem (DHE)

Conceptual model of the DHE


Challenges in healthcare

Increasing expenses, low quality of medical services



Structural changes in the population:

By 2050

number of older people in less developed countries is projected to more than quadruple (from 374 million in 2000 to 1570 million)

proportion of very old people (over 80 years old) will constitute 10% of the population in Europe as opposed to only 3% today.

results in increasing pressures on the healthcare system


Changes in disease prevalence: chronic vs acuteHealthcare systems designed to treat acute diseases

Today most deaths caused by chronic diseases


New paradigms in healthcare

Changing the role of the patient -> first-class actor in his healthcare process

Patient empowerment : educated patient, able to make informed decisions

Continuity of care: informational, management, relational continuity

Team care: multidisciplinary and cross-organizational



an emerging field in the intersection of medical informatics, public health and business, referring to health services and information delivered or enhanced through the Internet and related technologies.

In a broader sense, the term characterizes not only a technical development, but also a

state of the mind

, a

way of thinking

, an


, and a

commitment for networked, global thinking

to improve Health-care locally, regionally, and worldwide by using information and communication technology.


Large spectrum of computer-based applications




Hospital Information Systems

Clinical Information Systems

Chronic Disease

Public Health Surveillance

Electronic Health Records



Models in System Engineering

Model = semantically closed abstraction of a subject system

Model purposes:

Visualize and communicate to others a system

Specify the structure and behavior of a system

Give a template for constructing

a system


the design decisions


Model Driven Architecture

Software development process

Architecture = specification of the components and connectors of the system and the constraints and rules for the interactions between the components

Defines what models to be used and their relationship, creates 3 viewpoints:

Computation independent viewpoint

Platform independent viewpoint

Platform specific viewpoint


Digital Ecosystems

Natural life ecosystem

= a biological community of interacting organisms plus their physical


Digital species



New business


in the t


sectors of the Digital Ecosystem (telecommunications, media and IT industries):



could spend more effort in identifying the next areas of welfare creation that can be targeted in all sectors of the economy, thus generating additional value for the industry to share in. Sectors such as healthcare, logistics

, transportation, financial services, education, and retail are all likely to present significant opportunities to leading companies within the digital ecosystem in the coming years. Indeed, shifting focus away from competing within their existing boundaries to solving pressing social and business problems in these sectors may afford participants in the TC, ME and IT industries opportunities to collaborate and grow their collective and individual profit pools.” (Michele Luzi and Jennifer Binder-Le Pape: EMERGING “DIGITAL ECOSYSTEM BUSINESS MODELS AT THE CONFLUENCE OF THE IT, TELECOM, AND MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRIES”, GOVERNORS MEETING FOR THE DIGITAL ECOSYSTEM)The Digital Ecosystem is the space formed by the convergence of the media, telecoms and IT industries. It consists of users, companies, governments and civil society, as well as the infrastructure that enables digital interactions.


Ecosystem Characteristics

One of the most important features of biosystems is how they are able to maintain local order (low entropy) within their system boundaries.

Ecosystems grow and develop in four progressive growth forms reflected in: boundary, structure, network, and information relationships.


Digital species:

autonomous, proactive and adaptive entities

Organized in digital communities

Peer to peer interactions through information flows

Existing digital components can be equipped with digital organs to function in the DE


Digital ecosystems are “the dynamic and synergetic complex of Digital Communities consisting of interconnected, interrelated and interdependent Digital Species situated in a Digital Environment, that interact as a functional unit and are linked together through actions, information and transaction flows.”


Virtualization of the Business Ecosystem


Digital Healthcare Ecosystem


Reflection of the healthcare ecosystem


Modeling the health state

Health state = mental representation or abstract object

Reflection in our digital system of the real state of the patient

Tends to minimize the gap between reality and representation by accumulation of observations


Layers of abstraction

Health issue, health condition, health state
