Workflow in Healthcare - Monographs.

Workflow in healthcare is in its infancy, and faces many obstacles about which much needs to be discussed.
Healthbase recommends Tom Beale's excellent (EHR-centric) Health Information Standards Manifesto as background reading for clarifying issues related to designing information systems for healthcare, despite it having been published back in 2000.

Here are a number of monographs touching on specific issues confronting Workflow Management Systems (WfMSs) in the health domain:-
