With this information, it can determined if compliance with a particular pathway results in positive outcomes with particular patients and, if it doesn't, how the pathway may best be modified
(e.g., it may show that when medication X is administered to patients with diagnosis Y earlier in the pathway than originally recommended, the outcomes are significantly better). This information
also identifies why particular pathways are not followed precisely, so that action can be taken to enhance compliance to pathways bringing about positive outcomes.
Note that CPW+ can use any clinical pathways/guidelines, rules, analytic processes, and logic for any health problems/conditions.
The current application uses a pathway designed by a team of physicians for diagnosing and treating acute myocardial ischemia. And the variance analysis content was developed in conjunction with Harborview Medical Center, University of Washington.
