The Chester County Hospital, USA-Gold Award
The healthcare industry has been slower to adopt Business Process Management (BPM) than other industries. However, The Chester County Hospital (CCH) has distinguished itself by not only implementing workflow management technology in a healthcare setting, but by customizing and supplementing that technology with its own home-grown applications. The result is a workflow system that integrates clinical, operational and financial processes to support patient-centered care. In addition to meeting the primary goal of providing safer, more efficient care to patients, BPM has enabled CCH to improve working conditions for employees, dramatically increase productivity, achieve higher levels of cost optimization, and become a competitive force to reckon with in the local healthcare community.

Samsung Heavy Industries, Korea—Gold Award
Due to a dramatic increase in the quantity of orders received since 2000, Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) realized the necessity of implementing business process management (BPM) technology for more efficient management and monitoring of our international shipbuilding operations. Today, the implemented BPM system has improved and efficiently manages not only processes such as order placement management, contractor process management, production management, and quantity management related to shipbuilding outsourcing, but has also improved the business processes related to the materials supplied to subcontractors of the various shipyards. Using this system, the processes were visualized. This visualization allowed us to optimize the fabrication management process, enable employees to manage and monitor the priority and status of various business processes in real-time, and provide an alarm notification function for process delays. e-TEAMS was the first instance of the application of BPM technology supporting business processes in the Korean shipbuilding industry.
