A webinar regarding HealthPathways has been arranged for Wednesday 7 July, 9am to 10.30am.
HealthPathways began in New Zealand in 2008 as a way of providing condition-specific clinical guidance to general practice. Pathways of care are locally agreed by primary and secondary care clinicians, based on evidence, and reflect “how we do things around here”.
HealthPathways is now used and trusted by frontline clinicians throughout New Zealand and Australia and in parts of the UK. It has been implemented by 47 health systems serving a population of over 30 million people.
HealthPathways has helped these health systems to:
- reduce unwarranted variation in care
- translate national policy and guidance into local practice
- minimise unnecessary referrals that waste time and resource
- resolve debate among clinicians about how a patient should be managed.
Dr David Hambleton will facilitate the webinar and introduce the concept behind HealthPathways. There will be a live demonstration of HealthPathways by Dr Helen Horton (GP Lead North Cumbria), and Kate Hudson (Chief Finance Officer/Chief Officer for South Tyneside CCG) will talk about the return on investment seen in South Tyneside. The webinar will conclude with a discussion by a panel of health professionals who have HealthPathways in their health and social care systems.
