In this paper, we propose a framework for seamless conceptual modeling of both data and processes, and the seamless integration of temporalities for both clinical data and clinical tasks. Moreover, we apply our approach to model the clinical pathway for managing patients with ROSC (Return Of Spontaneous Circulation) in a real ICU clinical setting.
