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 Webster MD MSIE MSIS

With degrees in Accountancy, Industrial Engineering, Computational Linguistics, Artificial Intelligence, and Medicine, Dr. Webster can see around corners. He designed the first undergraduate program in Medical Informatics, was CMIO for an EHR vendor, and wrote the first three winning applications for the HIMSS Davies Award for EHR Ambulatory Excellence. 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 5: What Will Make BPM Successful in Healthcare?

5. Going beyond process mining how about todays modern business process management suite. I’ve written about why BPM has been slow to defuse into healthcare. What is it going to take, to get the workflow out of hardcoded Java and C# code and into formats more easily created, understood, edited, and improved?

Well, perhaps a certain generation of healthcare professionals needs to die out first. My experience is that many of the younger doctors are more open-minded to the use of technology and are really interested in holistic approaches to improve the quality of care, including BPM. I have seen this during my long-lasting cooperation with a group of Dutch dermatologists, who are willing to try out any good idea. Come to think of it: They are all women as well, by the way--not sure whether this plays a role. And we need people like you, Chuck, who spread the word 24/7. Keep it up.

Question 6 (Why is European/Dutch BPM So Advanced?) and Hajo Reijers' answer will be published very soon.

Follow @EHRworkflow to be sure not to miss it.
