Tasking, as it relates to an EHR, is the practice of using a software solution to distribute work function items to members of a medical organization.

Tasking enables an office to become more efficient at many tasks by adding a level of accountability, as well as, the ability to audit task completion. Electronic tasking, although more robust, is often referred to as replacing "sticky notes." Some of the advanced functionality of tasking would typically include task priority, overdue notification, notify upon completion, and future tasks.
