New toolkit helps medical practices examine the impact of health IT on workflow

Research Activities, September 2011, No. 373

A new toolkit prepared by the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Center for Quality and Productivity Improvement will assist small- and medium-sized practices in workflow analysis and redesign before, during, and after health information technology (IT) implementation. The toolkit, Workflow Assessment for Health IT, includes tools to analyze workflow, examples of workflow analysis and redesign, and others' experiences with health IT and workflow. The toolkit was funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
