AMIA2014 Workflow Poster (Tuesday) A Time-and-motion Study of Clinical Trial Eligibility Screening in a Pediatric Emergency Department

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

5:00 Tuesday

[CW: see Table. Time and percentage over all time spent on workflow activities.]

Determining patient eligibility is a major barrier to clinical trial enrollment. We conducted a time-and-motion study on the clinical trial eligibility screening workflow in a pediatric emergency department (ED). We observed the workflow activities and the major findings are presented. Most (50%) of the time is spent screening patients and performing procedures; the time spent walking and waiting suggests that rearranging work locations could save time.
