AMIA2014 Workflow Paper (Tuesday) Going Digital: Transforming Medical Checklists for Improved Patient Care

(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 Tuesday

“This panel is aimed at addressing the implications and challenges of designing, developing, implementing and evaluating digital checklists in clinical settings. Panelists will share their experiences with checklist design and development, and discuss how digital formats may further improve the impact of the checklist in a range of settings. This is an important panel to have at AMIA in order to engage the community in discussing critical questions about advancing the checklist mechanisms in increasingly digital medical environments. Learning objectives include: (a) formulate an approach for designing digital checklists in a clinical setting; (b) formulate an approach for implementing digital checklist in a clinical setting; and (c) evaluate the effectiveness and impact of digital checklists using both simulated and clinical settings.

Implementation issues: Prior research has identified several barriers to the successful implementation of paper-based checklists, including poor communication among team members, lack of leadership, inappropriate timing for checking an item, and time taken up by checklist completion.5 Do the same barriers apply to implementing digital checklists? What are the issues we need to consider when implementing digital checklists?”
