2004 EHR WfMS Tutorial Slide 1-2: What (Exactly) is EMR EHR Workflow Management?

From 2004 to 2006 I gave an annual three-hour tutorial about EHR Workflow Management Systems (WfMSs). While some terminology is dated (for example, WfMSs are now called Business Process Management Systems), the concepts are even more relevant today. P.S. I’ve been a HIMSS Social Media Ambassador for six years in a row. Join me on Twitter at @wareFLO to to help spread the the message: Viva la Workflow! (Take me to the beginning of these slides!)

My name is Chuck Webster, VP Medical Informatics, at JMJ Technologies in Atlanta Georgia [CW: Obviously, not currently!]. I’m here to speak about What (Exactly) is Electronic Health Record Workflow Management and what are its Empirical Effects on Practice Productivity

(By the way, these slides are screen-captured from an audio-narrated Flash-video based on the slides. Feel free to have a listen, if you’d rather.

Here is my outline. What is Workflow Managment. Show me some numbers. Why are they so good?

A better outline might have been…

Outline

  • Five EHR Workflow Usability Principles
  • The Workflow Reference Model
  • Four Types of EHR Workflow
  • Survey: Usability, Revenue, Expenses, Time & Quality
  • Why did Patient Volume Increase?
  • Less Not Value-Added Activity
  • More Parallel Value-Added-Activity
  • Better Coordinated Activity Delegation
  • Who is the Workflow Engine?

…but I didn’t want to makes the mistake of spending a lot of time explaining the outline when I could simply demonstrate it by forging ahead!
