Workflow redesign takes time and resources. Why is it important?

Redesigning your workflow helps you get the most value from implementing an electronic health record (EHR). To get started, analyze your existing workflow. Create a visual map of how work is currently being done and who is doing what. This map will let you see your workflow, and decide where you'd like to change (or redesign) how work gets done with EHRs. The National Learning Consortium (NLC) Workflow Redesign Templates provide a framework to start analyzing your workflow.
