Without effective workflows, doing any job can be a challenge, and clinical work is no exception. Thankfully, automation can simplify certain tasks and accelerate workflows – but it also has the potential to create challenges, and at times, frustration.
When it comes to electronic health record (EHR) workflows, there are a number of workflow automation capabilities within EHR systems that not only promote the efficient completion of tasks, but also can transform how work is done and, ultimately, support better outcomes.
Our eBook, Leveraging the EHR for effective clinical workflows, explores four strategies that can help clinicians improve workflows by leveraging tools they already have within their EHR systems, including:
- Personalized documentation templates
- Task delegation
- Follow-up reminders
- Customization of clinical decision support (CDS) features
