Workflow in Healthcare - Scenarios.
Workflow evangelists have suggested many benefits arising out of the adoption of
workflow technologies to healthcare, including:-
- Clinical efficiencies through improvements in patient flow, reductions in complications, reductions in treatment intensity and fewer morbid complications.
- Operational efficiencies through reduction in duplicated tests, improved resource utilisation, improved planning.
- Improved levels of health through better population data analysis, more timely care interventions.
Although it may be many years before we see workflow systems making significant contributions to healthcare, we can
envision and start to document some of the benefits in real-world healthcare scenarios.
Here are some links to sites that discuss benefits or potential benefits of
introducing workflow systems into healthcare.
