OK, let’s start to put some of the pieces together. The EHR workflow management system workflow engine uses process definitions like rules to reason about the same things that a good journalist writes about: who, what, why, when, where and how. Who just logged in? Dr. Jones versus Dr. Smith. Dr. Jones may prefer to do tasks A then B. Dr. Smith may prefer to do tasks B then A. What is the role of the person who just logged in? Physician or nurse? Examination screen or vitals screen. Why is the patient here? Is this a well child visit? Is this a visit for chronic condition such as diabetes. When are you in the workplan [AKA process definition]. What’s been accomplished and what remains to be accomplished. Show the screens for things that remain to be accomplished not the screens for things that have already been accomplished. Where are you? Are yon in an exam room or a tech station. If at a tech station, maybe this has something to do with the EKG machine. Finally, how does this specialty perform its tasks. What are the activities and what are their order.

EMR EHR Workflow Engine Uses Process Definitions to Reason About…

  • Who (Dr. Jones: personal preferences)
  • What (role: physcian, nurse…)
  • Why (vist reason: well child, chronic Rx)
  • When (position in workplan [AKA process definition])
  • Where (exam room, tech station…)
  • How (specialty-specific)
