Multiple task coordination involves scheduling tasks, completing tasks, and integrating tasks into a workflow. Task scheduling can influence outcomes of safety, satisfaction, and efficiency when completing tasks. This is especially important in complex life-critical environments such as healthcare, which incurs many situations where there are multiple tasks and limited resources for addressing all tasks. One approach for understanding tasks coordination is the Strategic Task Overload Management (STOM) model, which is a model for task scheduling behavior. In this theoretical paper, we discuss how this model can be extended to a complex healthcare environment. There are additional considerations (e.g., time) which must be considered when applying this model to healthcare. Ultimately, understanding how emergency physicians make multiple task scheduling decisions will advance theories and models, such as STOM, which can then in turn be implemented to improve scheduling behaviors in complex healthcare environments.
