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.
