Abstract: 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. Moreover, the introduction of WFMS would enable healthcare institutions to face this challenge of transforming large amounts of medical data into contextually relevant clinical information and knowledge. In order to emphasise the dynamic connection between healthcare, workflow and internet technologies, the intelligence continuum is introduced.
