Healthcare institutions globally are currently having major problems accessing and maintaining the large amounts of data that are continuously being generated. Examination of the clinical procedures relating to patient management reveals that many of these activities are repetitive. Workflow Management Systems (WFMS) can automate these repeated activities.
