AMIA2014 Workflow Poster (Tuesday) Challenges Faced When Designing and Conducting Time Motion Studies in Health Care Environments

(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

“Introduction: Clinical workflow describes a process that comprises a wide range of activities executed by health personnel to provide patient care. Understanding clinical workflow has progressively been recognized as an essential component of successful Health Information Technology implementation and adoption. Originally created as a business efficiency assessment technique, Time Motion Studies (TMS) have been adopted as a working method to describe and assess clinical workflow. While some standards about the methods used to conduct TMS have been provided1, existing literature only provides general guidelines for designing TMS, but do not address practical challenges encountered when using this method2. Here we present a set of common challenges based on our group’s experience.”
