The HealthPathways Community is an international collective of health and social care organisations that collaborate to deliver locally relevant pathways to clinicians. Community members use the HealthPathways platform which includes starter pathways, pathway development tools, and websites for front line clinicians to refer to at the point of care. This collaboration delivers better patient outcomes by reducing variation in pathways and clinical practice and enabling new clinical evidence and health policy to flow swiftly into practice.

The HealthPathways development and review process asks questions that help reveal unconscious bias and assumptions about patient behaviour and service availability that the pathways can then address. HealthPathways accommodates necessary variation in care processes due to important local differences, while also helping to reveal unnecessary variation in care, which contributes to equity of outcomes.

HealthPathways offers clinicians locally-agreed information to make the right decisions, together with patients, at the point of care, so you can:

  • improve trust and relationships across the care continuum
  • use capacity more efficiently
  • reduce variation in care
  • save time for patients and clinicians

Do you ever ask yourself...

 

How can HealthPathways help?

HealthPathways supports general practitioners and hospital clinicians to make informed, supportive decisions with the patient at the point of care, within any local constraints on service availability.
 
They help to:
  • reduce variation in experience and outcomes for patients
  • improve local resource use and avoid an over-reliance on secondary care
  • translate national guidance into local practice consistently
  • increase relationships and efficiencies across primary and secondary care
