Title: MANAGING CARE PATHWAYS
Abstract:
A method of facilitating management of a care pathway includes receiving a care pathway definition, having a first care pathway step and a second care pathway step, where each care pathway step is identified by a unique identification (ID) code. The method includes determining a keyword associated with each care pathway step; and identifying, in patient information, care episodes. The method may include extracting, from the patient information, episode information corresponding to the care episodes; associating the care episodes with the corresponding care pathway steps; and determining, based on the care pathway definition and the episode information, a care metric. A display device may be used to present a representation of the care metric to a user.
