AMIA2014 Workflow Paper (Monday) Applied Clinical Informatics Best Practices in support of Clinical Next Best Practices: Integrating Knowledge Discovery to Delivery into Workflow

(Quotes from 2014 AMIA proceedings that interest me due to workflow-related implications: Take me to my Workflow-Related #AMIA2014 Papers and Posters rationale!)

10:30 Monday

“Consistently delivering Best Practice care to patients in an efficient, effective, and safe manner holds the most promise for transforming not only health care delivery, but the practice of medicine. However, standard use of Best Practice must not only apply to patient care processes, but to the means and mechanisms by which such clinical Best Practices are discovered, disseminated, delivered, and reinforced. Clinical Informatics and Engineering Best Practices further hold much promise to the optimal application of ever more complex and voluminous body of domain knowledge to similarly sophisticated patient information. This study demonstrates the potential for such an approach.


Key clinical workflows and clinician mental models were identified and supporting processes and tools were core designed for optimal performance. Surgical Complications, Utilization (LOS), Time-on-task, and Mental Workload were all significantly reduced while Pathway Compliance was sustained.”
