Clinical Task Assignment and Routing


STATEMENT: Assignment, delegation and/or transmission of tasks to the appropriate parties.
DESCRIPTION: Tasks are at all times assigned to at least one user or role for disposition. Whether the task is assignable and to whom the task can be assigned will be determined by the specific needs of practitioners in a care setting. Task-assignment lists help users prioritize and complete assigned tasks. For example, after receiving communication (e.g. a phone call or e-mail) from a patient, the triage nurse routes or assigns a task to return the patient's call to the physician who is on call. Task creation and assignment may be automated, where appropriate. An example of a system-triggered task is when lab results are received electronically; a task to review the result is automatically generated and assigned to a clinician. Task assignment ensures that all tasks are disposed of by the appropriate person or role and allows efficient interaction of entities in the care process.
