Using ClinicalPath to help improve patient outcomes and manage the cost of care

Hospitals across the country implement a variety of information technology solutions with the hope of improving patient outcomes while managing skyrocketing healthcare costs. Far too often, however, it’s not clear what benefits, if any, such solutions bring.

To measure whether ClinicalPath could help solve these challenges, Cone Health Cancer Center implemented ClinicalPath and performed an analysis. Researchers looked at both costs and outcomes for nearly 7,000 patients.

They found that:

  • When treated on-pathway, patients were half as likely to die within 3, 6 or even 12 months of when the treatment began.

  • The use of ClinicalPath had a significant positive impact on their contribution margins. Reduce unwarranted care variation to help improve patient outcomes and manage costs.
