The efficient use of health care ressources requires the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). During a treatment process, patients have often been tested and partially treated with different diagnoses in mind before the precise diagnosis is identified. To use resources well it becomes necessary to adapt the prescribed treatments to make use of the tests and partial treatments already performed, rather than always starting from square one. We propose to facilitate this through the design of declarative process models accounting for the involvement of distributed groups of medical specialists and the adaptation of treatments, and through the evaluation of the trustworthiness of models taking account of test results and actual treatments compared to the clinical guidelines.
