Does anyone use clinical pathways in their HH agency? I've been thinking of this as a way to streamline patient care and have more goals-focused outcomes but not sure how it would work in actual practice. I've always used them in the hospital, so am well aware of benefits and drawbacks in that environment, wondering if they'd be useful in home care. Thoughts?
I have "pocket guide to home care standards: complete guidelines for clinical practice, documentation, an reimbursement" that I go over many times when doing a SOC. It's has very useful info pertaining to various diseases with assessment, inventions, diagnosis, teachings, etc. Also towards the back is a section titled clinical pathways in home care. I came across this book because someone else is this forum recommended it.
