Establish Workflow: Clinical Data-sharing

Steps to Define Sharing Clinical Data Workflow

Establish new workflows

  • At the team's third meeting, map the workflows currently used to share patient information by fax, phone, and mail. Then figure out new workflows for electronic sharing.
  • These suggestions(1 page DOC) may guide the discussion.
  • Document new workflow decisions and processes in the office manual or other appropriate place.

Once the new workflows have been created, you're ready to choose a secure electronic messaging system. Share the new workflows to learn if each system will support them.

What you will need

  • Decision-making authority
  • Time to create new workflows
