Supports and automates clinical and business processes across Organisational boundaries to make processes and communication more efficient.

A Cross-Organisation workflow can be defined as a series of tasks undertaken across different organisations by Health and Care Professionals in support of a particular clinical or business process. The Cross-organisation Workflow Tools capability supports such workflows and enables organisations to efficiently manage events throughout the various stages of a process through the automation of standard, repeatable processes.

The Cross-Organisation Workflow Tools Capability reduces the communication burden between Organisations and facilitates better coordination of Patient/Service User care across the health and social care system. It allows tasks in the process to be assigned to the correct Health or Care Professional or other Staff Member (the 'participant') and ensures the participant can perform assigned tasks quickly and efficiently by making relevant information about the Patient/Service User and their care available. This could include artefacts such as a shared assessment or care plan.

The Cross-Organisation Workflow Tools Capability provides health and care organisations with the tools that allow them to effectively manage their work across multi-disciplinary and multi-organisational teams. Progress can be tracked, increasing simplicity and allowing issues to be quickly identified and addressed.

Examples of Cross-Organisation workflows include:

  • An assessment by one or more people in different organisations which may trigger a subsequent referral of a patient to external services
  • The delivery of a Shared Care Plan across a range of service provider teams  
  • The assessment of arrangements to support the transfer of a patient (e.g. discharge from hospital to home)
  • The review of a document (e.g. Care Plan) by all appropriate staff/organisations involved


Outcomes

Health or Care Professional or other Participant
  • Better informed regarding the status of tasks relating to Patient/Service User's care
  • Able to perform tasks quickly as all the relevant information is accessible (e.g. as supporting information)
  • Prompted and reminded to complete tasks
Manager
  • The ability to monitor progress means issues (e.g. late tasks) can be quickly and easily identified: manual overhead associated with tracking problems across multiple organisations is reduced
  • Use of workflows and templates allows processes to be standardised and made more consistent across the multiple organisations
  • Availability of information relating to workflows and tasks allows process design issues (e.g. pinch-points, poor hand-offs) to be identified and addressed
Integrated and Federated Care Settings
  • Integrated care is better supported through automation of cross-organisational clinical and business processes

C24E1 - use Workflow to run a Cross-organisational Process

As a Manager

I want to be able to initiate, run and monitor cross-organisational workflows

So that I can ensure the workflows are effectively supporting cross-organisational business and clinical processes

Acceptance criterion 1: initiate cross-organisational workflow

Given a workflow has been defined to support a cross-organisational process (e.g. workflow to support diagnosis of diabetes)

When the trigger for the process occurs (e.g. a Patient requires a diabetes diagnosis)

Then the cross-organisational workflow can be initiated

And any information regarding workflow can be provided (e.g. information about the Patient/Service User requiring diagnosis)

And any supporting artefacts can be linked to the workflow (e.g. Patient Assessment Form, care plan, referral)

Acceptance criterion 2: monitor in-flight cross-organisational workflows

Given workflows are being used to support cross-organisational business and clinical processes

When the cross-organisational workflow management 'view' is accessed

Then information about cross-organisational workflows can be viewed

And the view can be filtered to display only those workflows meeting criteria defined by the user (e.g. overdue workflows or those assigned to a particular user or organisation)

And the order in which the workflows are presented to view can be changed

Acceptance criterion 3: participant performs cross-organisational workflow task

Given a cross-organisational workflow has been initiated

And one or more tasks in the workflow have been assigned to participants

When a participant accesses their task or the cross-organisational workflow

Then they can view information on progress of the workflow

And they can view details of their task

And they can access any documents associated with the task or workflow

And they can update their task (e.g. change the status or provide information relating to the process)



C24E2 - maintain cross-organisational workflows

As a Manager

I want to be able to maintain cross-organisational workflows 

So that I can use these workflows to correctly deliver the range of clinical and business processes undertaken across the Organisations

Acceptance criterion 1: create cross-organisational workflows

Given workflows are used to support the management of cross-organisational processes

When the need for a cross-organisational workflow is identified (e.g. workflow to support diagnosis of diabetes)

Then the workflow can be created

And information about the workflow can be created

And the events of the workflow can be created

And the workflow events can be assigned to participants

Acceptance criterion 2: amend cross-organisational workflows

Given workflows are used to support the management of cross-organisational processes

When the need to amend a cross-organisational workflow is identified (e.g. add or remove steps from the diabetes diagnosis workflow)

Then the workflow can be amended

And information about the workflow can be amended

And the events of the workflow can be amended

And the participants assigned to events in the workflow can be amended

Acceptance criterion 3: delete cross-organisational workflows

Given workflows are used to support the management of cross-organisational processes

When a cross-organisational workflow is no longer needed

Then the workflow can be deleted

However, these Epics are not mandatory and will not be used as part of the overall assessment of whether the Capability is fully met. Any May Epics that are assessed as met will be available to buyers via the Buying Catalogue.

C24E3 - maintain cross-organisational workflow templates

As a Manager

I want to have access to cross-organisational task and workflow templates

So that I can efficiently and effectively maintain cross-organisation workflows

Acceptance criterion 1: create cross-organisational workflow task or template

Given workflows are used to support the management of cross-organisational processes

And some workflows have shared or common elements

When the need for a cross-organisational workflow task or template is identified

Then the relevant cross-organisational workflow task or template can be created

And the new task or template is available, so workflows can be built based on the task or template

Acceptance criterion 2: amend cross-organisational workflow task or template

Given workflows are used to support the management of cross-organisational processes

And some workflows have shared or common elements

When the need to update a cross-organisational workflow task or template is identified

Then the relevant cross-organisational workflow task or template can be amended

And the amended task or template is available, so workflows can be built based on the task or template

Acceptance criterion 3: delete cross-organisational workflow task or template

Given workflows are used to support the management of cross-organisational processes

When a cross-organisational workflow task or template is no longer needed

Then the workflow task or template can be deleted
