What Is Practice Workflow Analysis?

Practice Workflow Analysis is a method that standardizes and streamlines redundant, fragmented healthcare processes while performing at their highest efficiency and remaining profitable.

What Are the Benefits of Practice Workflow Analysis?

We believe these workflows, when done correctly, can:

  • Transform the patient journey, minimize risk
  • Improve the patient experience
  • Remain profitable
  • Operate more efficiently
  • Even save lives

From private practices, hospitals to community clinics, we specifically tailor the workflow processes to meet your organization’s needs — instituting patient care from admission to discharge.

We aim to ensure all staff within a group or system meets the same best practices defined by the healthcare organization.

Steps in the Process

Here are the steps of a practice workflow analysis:


Gain a clear understanding of the goals.

Together with the healthcare providers, we discuss workflow analysis within the scope of the clinic’s mission and vision. This knowledge equips our team by providing meaning and direction for the process.


Identify tasks and delegate roles for staff.

We collect facts and decide how the staff will offer services, including the summary of the tasks, in order of importance, completion time, role delegation, and several other essential variables influencing workflow.


Document and present the findings from the workflow analysis.

We document the findings by using knowledge and skill to recognize problems within the system, including delays, bottlenecks, or backlogs in the care delivery process. Then, we will draw comparisons between the practice’s processes and systems employed by similar practices (benchmarks) to support these findings. We then present these findings to practice leaders and work with them to create a vision of what aspects of the workflow process to address.


Develop a plan.

With the practice leaders and staff, we work to develop a plan for redesigning their process for delivering care to patients. This step incorporates best practices and identifies improvement opportunities to implement a new, more productive workflow process.
