Care Pathways are being developed throughout the health service to improve the quality and effectiveness of care. Are they being developed efficiently and making the most of the latest clinical computing systems? This is the first practical guide on how Information Technology and systems methods can support the development, implementation and maintenance of Care Pathways. Case studies throughout highlight team approaches to facilitation, clinical knowledge management, process analysis and redesign, and computerisation - providing insights into how e-Pathways can be used to support high quality patient care. The information is presented in an easy-to-read style, and requires no prior knowledge of IT systems. Doctors, nurses and managers throughout primary and secondary care, as well as healthcare information technology specialists and suppliers will find this to be essential reading.
