Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
Clinical pathways, also known as care pathways, are one of the main tools used to manage the quality in healthcare concerning the standardization of care processes. MD Practice Solutions and Applied Pathways announced today a partnership agreement to develop and integrate clinical pathway software within physician’s electronic health record (EHR) systems, enabling improvements to delivering better patient care. These clinical pathways provide physicians with detailed guidance for each stage in the management of a patient’s treatment for a specific condition over a given time period, including progress and outcomes details, directly within their EHR software.
The partnership was designed to encourage high-quality, evidence-based standards of care to ensure best patient outcomes. It has been proven that clinical pathway implementation reduces the variability in clinical practice and improves patient results to promote organized, efficient patient care grounded on the evidenced based practice.
The partnership with Applied Pathways will support MD Practice Solutions’ long-term commitments to providing physicians with technologies enabling better patient care. Angela Schul of MD Practice Solutions stated, “This partnership reflects our desire to collaborate with companies that share our vision and industry commitments. By implementing these evidence-based pathways, we believe we’ll be able to better supply our physicians with the tools required to improve the quality and cost of care delivered to patients and give them the peace of mind that they’re receiving the most appropriate treatment.”
