Depends on the data. If it's all string-like data (text, numbers, no binary) you can add the necessary data as input items to the model in your Web Application and have your monitor start the web app as an http request. That's quick and dirty, obviously, but I'd guess it would work. I used to do something similar before we had the option of the Web Application workflow project type. I'd have one form project that would pass the data into a workflow type project when the form was submitted.
