Workflow Process Mapping for Electronic Health Record (EHR) Implementation

These guidelines are intended to aid providers and health IT implementers while planning for EHR implementation.  The path to successful EHR implementation starts with practice workflow analysis and redesign. While this process isn’t easy and takes time, efficiently managed workflow redesign can be the difference-maker to maximize office efficiencies and improve care coordination using EHRs. In fact, a lack of thorough workflow planning is one of the biggest reasons for avoidable losses in productivity and extended work days.
