2004 EHR WfMS Tutorial Slide 18: Different Time & Different User: Four Types of EMR EHR Workflow

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!)

First there is the different person/different time workflow. This is the classic workflow that most people think of such as a nurse entering some vitals information, which is forwarded to the physician, the physician reviewing that data and other data and then delegating a task back to the nurse.
