2004 EHR WfMS Tutorial Slide 69: EMR EHR Workflow Engine Enables More Parallel Value-Added Activities

(Take me to the beginning of these slides!)

More parallel value-added activities–when activities can be delegated or executed in parallel, this can reduce the encounter length. The staff can be preparing material while the physician is still with the patient, because the physician can enter orders, trigger work plans [process definitions] that deliver activity todo items into todo boxes or appear on the status screen. Materials such as educational materials or trays full of material for collecting specimens or administering shots can be created and therefore the staff can be waiting basically to pounce on that patient as soon as that physician walks out of the door without the physician having to find the next person in the process definition.
