Abstract. This report will present a collection of tools that supports the precise
definition, careful analysis, and execution of processes that coordinate the ac-
tions of humans, automated devices, and software systems for the delivery of
health care. The tools have been developed over the past several years and are
currently being evaluated through their application to four health care proc-
esses, blood transfusion, chemotherapy, emergency department operations, and
identity verification. The tools are integrated with each other using the Eclipse
