In case you missed it, a new survey from CancerCare of more than 1,300 breast, colon, lung and prostate cancer patients diagnosed within the past five years found that the vast majority had not heard of clinical pathways.

As health care payers seek to transition to new, value-based payment models, clinical pathways are one strategy payers and providers are using in their efforts to contain costs and promote evidence-based care. Clinical pathways can encompass a wide range of activities – from care protocols that help reduce infection or prevent unnecessary visits to the emergency department, to those that seek to promote more efficient treatment decision-making.
