Health delivery process

How does the technology affect the current work processes?

Core

Current tasks and work processes should be described. This help to make a picture of the whole process as well as the continuity of care across professional and organisational boundaries.  Who is doing what in the process?

There are many actors at different levels (intra-organisational, inter-organisational and health care system level) in the process. Continuity should be ensured so that there will be no gaps between the steps of the process.

It should be explained what kind of changes a new technology could have: it might replace or reduce some activities.

This issue is about patient path way by the point of view of patient/participant.  Patient path should be described step by step. This includes also the waiting times for diagnosis and/or treatment and waiting time for analysis of the technology.

Preparations that patients/participants need to do before and after (e.g. diet before bariatric surgery) must be taken into account, as well as need for self/home monitoring.

Literature search, guidelines, annual reports and statistics, reports and own study (e.g. questionnaires and interviews of different actors)
