Clinical Pathways and Guidelines
Health care organizations that incorporate evidence-based medicine deliver better outcomes at a lower cost to their patients. There are proven interventions for clinical conditions that contribute to better outcomes. Clinical pathways and guidelines are intended to account for 80% of the intended population, not every single patient. Our strategy to “minimizing clinical variation” is intended to:
- Provide actionable, well-supported interventions consistently throughout our organization
- Define the “Spectrum Health way”
- Improve transparency and accessibility for all who care for patients at Spectrum Health
