Back to Ebola, EHR and workflow; let’s say, we got the workflow model there and the travel information is optional. We go in there and we click it and see now, we’re going to require it, it’s going to become required. By the way, if it’s not accomplished, we can’t check the patient out.

Workflow models are declarative, they could be transmitted. You can export them as XML and you can send them. You can imagine workflow models being transmitted from public health departments down to point-of-care EHRs and ambulatory and hospital environments. The nurse collects this information and somehow, it didn’t get to the physician, at least in the first version of this. EHR workflow systems excel at task-based communication. They do very, very well exactly what traditional EHR documentation systems do badly.

On the fourth, remember, that group of folks who said, “You know, just because you have an EHR, doesn’t absolve the clinical care team of the common sense responsibility of communicating [notion 00:22:04] of taking the physician side.” I said, this guy just come back from Africa, “Guess what, workflow systems, it would be very easy for the nurse to simply click ‘re-check’ and assign the duplicate task to the physician role.” That physician would not have been able to leave the emergency department until the physician saw it and signed off on it.
