Heart Failure Care Path
Care Paths are an advanced form of clinical decision support available in the Connect Care clinical information system. They aid in clinical workflow with simple and intuitive supports accessed via Best Practice Advisories (BPAs) based on results, medications, investigations and diagnosis. Targeted recommendations based on clinical criteria are provided to clinicians, which allow for key actions to be visible within a single view (e.g., order management, note writing).
The Heart Failure (HF) Care Path allows for an integrated multidisciplinary approach through shared coordination of a patient’s health care, with the objective of improving care across the continuum from acute, community and primary care. An initial focus relates to patients admitted with a primary diagnosis of HF.
