I went over logs from today, and noted some areas healers could improve.

In General
-Mythical Mana Potions and Concentration Potions are great to have handy when raiding new content.  For example, drinking a Mana Potion after the Mana Void on Yor'sahj can save the tanks life.

-Riptide should be used off-cooldown.  During AoE phases it can be put on random raid members, and if damage isn't happening to the raid the tank is always a good target for a Riptide.
-Mana Tide Totem is rather awesome to handle Mana Void spawns on Yor'sahj.  Other than that, it is good to use off cooldown if you and the other healers would regain mana from it.  (<70% is a good time to use it)
-Other than that everything looked pretty good, though some of the Healing Waves could be replaced with Chain Heal / Greater Healing when damage is high.

-You can remove Healing Touch from your action-bars.  Rejuvenation is nearly twice as mana-efficient and has a twice the throughput.  In the situation where someone is near-death and a HoT is not suitable, Regrowth is a better bet with 3/3 Nature's Bounty.  (You can move points out of Living Seed to fill it in)
-Using a Nourish or Regrowth to keep Harmony (Restoration mastery) up is a good way to increase throughput.  Casting a Nourish to refresh Lifebloom on the tank is a good way to accomplish two tasks at once.
-Wild Growth and Swiftmend should be used off-cooldown as long as two or more players are injured.  They are the two best spells in the Druids toolbox after Tranquility.
-It is good to get into the practice of using Innervate on yourself when you first drop below 80% mana and off-cooldown after that.  On Yor'sahj, you will want to save it for the Mana Voids, as it can give you enough mana to continue healing with no problems.
-During high-damage phases the highest throughput priority is Swiftmend > Wild Growth > Regrowth (if no Harmony buff) > Rejuvenation on a new target
-Lifebloom uptime was nearly 100%, which was very good.  Sorry if I seem overly harsh, my main is a Druid healer.
