DORNER Workflow Engine - our toolbox for Health-IT

With our DORNER Workflow Engine, or in short our Workflow, we extend our own standard solutions, but also those of other suppliers, in case of special requirements of individual customers, thanks to interfaces with which almost all devices and third party software can be connected.

Clearly structured sub-processes such as online anamnesis or master data analysis were mapped in the same way as entire institutes in sports medicine or forensic medicine with patient management, evidence object management and everything else that goes with it.

Thanks to its component-based architecture, which comprises well over 500 modules, this can sometimes be done comparatively quickly, as the example of the Civil Protection App developed in just 7 days shows.

And actually it is not a solution that we have explicitly offered so far, but rather the toolbox with which we create solutions and which we deliver with the solutions created with it.

Dr. Michael Busch is one of our most experienced product managers and project leaders and has kindly agreed to present our toolbox to them.

1st Hello Workflow! - What is the DORNER Workflow Engine?

"In a nutshell, we show an example workflow. A seemingly simple requirement on the part of medicine can quickly become very complex in IT. In this video, we show how easy it can be to create a functioning workflow in just a few hours and, by the way, what the DORNER Workflow Engine consists of.

2. the Health IT toolbox - a toolset for all cases

Dr. Michael Busch knows from his own experience about the discrepancy between in-house development and third-party software, as well as between individual and standard solutions. And therefore he knows how complex it can be for in-house developments, or expensive for third-party software, if new requirements are added over time.

3. workflow manager - mapping workflows 1:1

With our DORNER Workflow Engine we map work processes, as the name suggests. The first and most fundamental pillar is the workflow manager himself. A workflow can therefore be a single work step, but also the partial or complete process in which it is integrated.

4. form designer - adapt user interface to the requirement

In the last video, it was already clear that a workflow only makes sense in combination with a form, because usually a work step is also connected with the input of data. This data is entered in forms in our DORNER Workflow Engine. With the form designer, these are created in a clear, tabular view with, in the truest sense, just a few clicks.

5. macro editor - PHP rule set with frequently used templates

The heart of any application software is the programming or program logic that controls the behavior of the application. In the case of the DORNER Workflow Engine this is its third pillar: the macro editor!

6. office integration - all data in Word or Excel at the push of a button

For the users of the software who work with it on a daily basis, the Office integration is an elementary component of the DORNER Workflow Engine. With the push of a button they can create all documents once predefined in the system (appointment invitations, orders, findings, doctor's letters, service sheets).
