Ventilator Pathway: Clinical Pathway as An Emerging Tool for Quality Improvement

0 0 /5
INTRODUCTION Frequently, the effective implementation of a clinical practice guideline will require clinical pathways to be adapted or developed. Clinical pathways have emerged as a tool for payers to encourage provider adherence to evidence-based care. Pathways are useful tools to ensure effective sequencing, integration, and coordination of care and efficient use of available resources. Pathway adherence thresholds improve care quality by incentivizing appropriate care. Better the adherence to pathway, more standardized is the care & better are the outcomes. With an objective to enhance our mechanically ventilated patient outcomes we adopted a Ventilator pathway at RFH.
