If you’re not familiar with Charles Webster, MD (Better known as @wareflo on Twitter), then you probably don’t know that he has a total and absolute obsession with workflow and specifically workflow technologies. Each year for a number of years, the Workflow King (that’s his other nickname) has gone through the list of HIMSS annual conference exhibitors (~1300 this year) and evaluated how many of them were using workflow engines or workflow automation in their healthcare IT software.
With this background, I thought Chuck would be the perfect guest on a recent Healthcare Scene interview to talk about the evolution of healthcare IT workflow at HIMSS and some of the various companies at HIMSS 2016 that people should visit to see these technologies in action. Along with talking with Chuck, we were joined by a number of healthcare IT vendors that have workflow technologies that will be attending and exhibiting at HIMSS. Enjoy our discussion and a preview of workflow technologies at HIMSS 2016:
