POW! HIT! People & Organizations improving Workflow w/Health Info Tech

@EHRworkflow Blog

The is a "sidekick" blog to my main blog EHR Workflow Management Systems at ChuckWebster.com. There I publish long, complicated, thoughtful blogs thousands of words in length. Here? Not so much. It's mostly for snippets of content too big for a tweet but too small to grace the main deck of the mothership.

If you're looking for my POW! HIT! Profiles, they're here (explanation and most recent) and here (alphabetical index). POW! HIT! stands for People and Organizations improving Workflow in Healthcare with Information Technology (or Ideas and Technology, depending on context). However, I'll write or post content relevant to POW! HIT! on this and the mother blog. Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment!

Chuck opines about healthcare workflow and related and unrelated topics from @wareFLO (#HIMSS13 Top Tweeter) and DMV: the District, Maryland, and Virginia.

Hajo Reijers of Perceptive SW on Healthcare BPM 4: What Will Make Process Mining Successful?

4. In an earlier role, I had the opportunity to work with process mining technology that is now part of Perceptive Software. I’ve blogged about processing mining of healthcare event data. What is the key to productizing this amazing, and potentially very useful, technology in the healthcare space?

There are some things that have to be in place, of course. The technology must be powerful and accurate; it must also be easy to use and configurable by its target users. Once you have that, what is needed most are success stories. And I think they are coming in fast. One of the postdocs in our group, Ronny Mans, is carrying out a lot of these projects. We have recently used process mining to investigate dental implantology and are turning to eye surgery now. It's amazing what we find out and I think that these insights are hard to get by in any other way.

Question 5 (What Will Make BPM Successful in Healthcare?) and Hajo Reijers' answer will be published very soon.

Follow @EHRworkflow to be sure not to miss it.
