A health emergency is a situation that poses an immediate risk to health and life and requires urgent intervention to prevent its worsening. Emergency healthcare service is a real-time service, where timeliness is critical to mission success. Workflow management technology has received considerable attention in the healthcare field in recent years for the automation of both intra- and interorganizational healthcare processes. However, no work on timeliness analysis has been reported. In our previous work, we proposed Workflows Intuitive and Formal Approach (WIFA) formalism for emergency response workflow modeling. In this paper, we extend our WIFA formalism to take task execution times into account to support emergency response timeliness analysis. An example of emergency healthcare shows how the timed WIFA workflow model works.
