Workflow is Key to Managing Healthcare Process
The King of All Workflow
Meet @wareFLO – Chuck Webster, MD… and MSIE, MSIS and workflow evangelist. Sometimes called the “King of all Workflow in Healthcare” (mostly by himself) Chuck is the undisputed champion of workflow process. He has worked with healthcare systems to study, design and implement process improvement through workflow development. Chuck is also a workflow technology expert and helps his clients use business process management software to capture and analyze workflow.
I admit it – I’m a marketing and social media evangelist. As such I have encountered Chuck dozens of times in TweetChats, Blab sessions and throughout the social media spectrum. I know that Chuck has an affinity for social media. I was not going to promise the same about workflow. Our interview ended up being really interesting and I learn a lot – painlessly.
