The HealthPathways Community is an international collective of health and social care organisations that collaborate to deliver locally relevant pathways to front-line clinicians. To do this, community members collaborate use the HealthPathways platform which includes starter pathways, pathway development tools, and a website for use by front line clinicians at the point of care. This collaboration reduces unnecessary variation in pathways and clinical practice, and helps to rapidly get new health service policy and clinical evidence into practice at scale, leading to better patient outcomes. 

The HealthPathways process for developing and reviewing pathways asks questions that help reveal unconscious bias and assumptions about patient behaviour and service availability, that can then be highlighted in the pathways. Combining this with the flexibility of HealthPathways to accommodate necessary variation in care processes due to important local differences, while also helping to reveal unnecessary variation in care, 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
