The need for clinical guidelines to be implemented at different sites, to adapt to rapidly changing environments, and to be carried out by distributed clinical teams, implies a degree of flexibility beyond that of current guideline languages. We propose an extension to the PROforma language allowing hierarchical goal-based plans. Sub-plans to achieve goals are proposed at runtime so that changing circumstances may be flexibly accommodated without redefining the workflow.
