In this paper we describe a BPM solution implemented by integrating server technologies in a SOA manner. Our solution empowers healthcare workers to more efficiently and effectively create clinical forms and contribute in clinical business processes. The clinical forms are XML documents created either using a special editor or web forms. Shared access and document management facilities are supported via the SharePoint Services while business processes management is driven by the BizTalk server. The integration between servers and components is realized via Web Services, adapters, and event handlers. The core logic behind business processes is implemented via BEPL constructs that obtain clinical forms, perform the requested data transformations, store data into the database, and push forms further into business processes. Event handlers receive forms from processes and, according to the routing information, deliver them to recipients. Web services provide SOA glue and lookups.
