2004 EHR WfMS Tutorial Slide 23: EMR EHR Workflow Engine Presents Right Screen & Data & Order Entry Options…

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!)

In other words, the workflow engine uses process definitions in order to present the right screen to the right person at the right time containing the right data the right order entry options and to execute many tasks automatically without need for any user intervention. Such as printing patient education materials at the printer closest to the exam room and submitting a todo list item to a nurse to retrieve and assemble those materials and to give them to the patient.
