alpha-Flow provides an approach to electronic process support in healthcare following the case handling paradigm while focusing on distributed environments and document-oriented systems integration. The traditional paper-based interaction paradigm in medicine is picked up and further extended. Both the often initially unknown amount of participating actors and the dynamic order of treatment steps in healthcare processes are considered to offer benefit to the cooperating physicians.
I have contributed the concept and implementation of Adaptive Version Clocks as well as the novel OffSync protocol to alpha-Flow.
Adaptive version clocks are data structures for dynamic lists of logic clocks. The OffSync protocol enables offline-capable synchronization of dynamic nodes in totally partitioned networks.
An early snapshot of the alpha-Flow source code is available on GitHub.
