critical pathway & health care reforms critical pathway & health care reforms Presentation Transcript

  • INTRODUCTION • Successful case management relies on critical pathway to guide care • Critical pathway refers to the expected outcomes and care strategies developed by collaborative practice team Page 2
  • HOW TO DEFINE.. • Critical paths are guides that outline the critical or key events expected to happen each day of patient’s hospitalization -Cohen & Cesta,2001 Page 3
  • HOW TO DEFINE..(2) • Critical pathways are one method of planning, assessing, implementing and evaluating the cost- effectiveness of patient care Page 4
  • HOW TO DEFINE..(3) • A series of methods and instruments to allign member of the interdisciplinary and interprofessionally team for the care of the pre defined patient population in order to realize an efficient, patient centered, coordinated program of care -Sermeus & Vanhaecht,2002 Page 5
  • SYNONYMOUS • • • • • • • • • • Integrated Care Pathways Multidisciplinary pathways of care Care Maps Collaborative Care Pathways Clinical pathway Critical pathway Care track Care pathway Anticipated recovery path Managed care plans Page 6
  • WHAT ARE ITS FEATURES.. • • • • • • Predetermined course of progress Variance analysis Fiscal planning Directing Orientation Identifies outcome Page 7
  • WHAT DOES IT CONTAINS.. • • • • Specific medical diagnosis The expected length of stay Patient identification data Appropriate time frames (in days, hours, minutes or visits) for intervention • Patient outcomes • Interventions presented in modality groups ( medications, nursing activity & so on) • Nursing diagnosis Page 8
  • What it is actually…. • Clinical tools that organize, sequence and time the major interventions of the nursing staff, physicians, for a particular case type, condition, diagnostic category or nursing diagnosis • Describe an institutions collective standard of practice, clinical budget Page 9
  • What it is actually…. • Provides direction and predictability to patient care and to caregivers interacting in that case • Shows something that must occur in the sequence before one may proceed. Page 10
  • COMPONENTS • Clinical Pathways have four main components (Hill, 1994, Hill 1998): 1. a timeline 2. the categories of care or activities and their interventions 3. intermediate and long term outcome criteria 4. and the variance record Page 11
  • How to develop critical pathway Professional involved…. • Physician • Nurse manager • Staff nurse • Social worker • Dietician • Occupational therapist • pharmacist Page 12
  • How to develop critical pathway • Retrospective chart review or concurrent chart review • identify costs associated with the treatment • Pathway development teams are organized to develop the tool Page 13
  • How to develop critical pathway • Patient care expectations and critical events are identified for incorporation into the path • Small groups within the development to refine the elements of the path Page 14
  • How to develop critical pathway • Newly developed tools can be tested on previously admitted patient • Implementation with collaboration with other professionals Page 15
  • Critical pathway analysis • Analyze the effectiveness • Variance analysis Positive variance Negative variance • Consult with other professionals • Make change accordingly Page 16
  • What is your role as Nurse manager • • • • • Assess quality improvement Effective planning Evaluate quality Interdepartmental Communication Educating the staff of other departments about the pathway role and responsibilities. Page 17

  • Its disadvantages are… • Require commitment from staff and establishment of an adequate organizational structure • May take time to be accepted in the workplace • Need to ensure variance and outcomes are properly recorded, audited and acted upon. Page 23
  • INTRODUTION • Health care reform is a general rubric used for discussing major health policy creation or changes for the most part, governmental policy that affects health care delivery in a given place Page 25
  • Introduction • Despite various development plans, lack of or inadequate basic infrastructure, both social and physical, continues to remain a major constraint to progress in many parts of our country Page 26

  • AIMS • Broader the population that receives health care coverage • Improve the access to health care specialists • Improve the quality of health care • Decrease the cost of health care Page 28
  • Reform strategies • alternative financing (user-fees, health insurance, community financing, private sector investment) • institutional management (autonomy to hospitals, monitoring and management by local government agencies, contracting) • public sector reforms (civil service reforms, capacity building, productivity improvement); and • collaboration with the private sector (public/private partnerships, joint ventures) Page 29
