A Fit between Clinical Workflow and Health Care Information Systems: Not waiting for Godot but making the journey
Integratie van klinische workflow en informatiesystemen: Niet meer wachten op Godot
Health care has long suffered from inefficiencies due to the fragmentation of patient care information and the lack of coordination between health professionals . Health care information systems (HISs) have been lauded as tools to remedy such inefficiencies [2, 3]. The primary idea behind the support of their implementation in health care is that these systems support clinical workflow and thereby decrease medical errors . However, their introduction to health care settings have been accompanied by a transformation of the way their primary users, care providers, carry out clinical tasks and establish or maintain work relationships . Studies have shown that these transformations have not always been productive [5, 6].
