We develop clinical pathways that improve patient outcomes and reduce costs. Clinical pathways, which are algorithms that prescribe steps for particular medical procedures, are grounded in evidence-based data and help to improve patient care through prescribing a procedure. They help to inform clinical decisions and often result in more consistency of care approaches that can reduce length of stay.
Our process reviews patient records to identify pathways and supports their implementation with physicians. We collect the data, analyze the data, and develop the pathways to reduce service use in targeted areas. We find early wins and substantial savings, reducing length of stay, with pathways that are most associated with shorter hospital visits.
The results enable more patients to gain the service they need at the appropriate level of care.
