Recipes for Success in Clinical Workflow Management

Hi readers,

I had the great fortune today, to collaborate on a presentation with the talented nurse informaticist and designer Andrea Hoffman, RN, to the Informatics team at a fairly large healthcare organization. What a humbling experience! We were in a room with a lot of bright people, working on some truly remarkable and groundbreaking stuff! (It's good to know that healthcare is really working on innovation!)

Anyway, we presented on patient safety ( #ptsafety ) and clinical #workflow management - How to make your own gourmet workflow kitchen! A few people have asked me if they could see the slides, so here they are!

Please note : To make clinical workflow design something real and tangible, and to convey our passion for great workflows, we decided to use a lot of food analogies - After all, the food service industry has a lot of lessons to offer in process design, workflow, and safety.

Enjoy, and feel free to leave any questions or thoughts in the comments section below.

Hope you enjoyed them! New posts to come soon!
