Portada
Jones & Bartlett Learning, 1998 - 403 páginas
The transformation in the health care industry, begun over a decade ag o, will continue well into the 21st century. And the dominant theme in the new millennium is likely to be collaborative practice and outcome s-based health care delivery. A collection of the most current and inn ovative presentations in path-based, collaborative practices, this boo k focuses on the design, implementation and analysis of outcomes for t he heavy volume DRGs. For each DRG, the authors present two to three s tandard clinical pathways, and then show how those pathways can be man ipulated to alter outcomes. Health Care Outcomes covers topics in Resp iratory, Neonatal/Pediatric, General Surgery, Orthopaedic, and Geriatr ic Care. A comprehensive collection of critical pathways and outcomes maps being used by leading hospitals and health care agencies around t he country, this is an important reference for developing path-based c are models, or revising critical paths and outcomes maps.
