Conformance Analysis of Clinical Pathway Using Electronic Health Record Data.
CONCLUSIONS: This analysis of the application and matching rates of CP orders suggests that it is possible to improve these rates by updating the existing CP order sets for routine discharge orders to reflect data-driven evidence. This study shows that it is possible to improve the application and matching rates of the CP using EHR log data. However, further research should be performed to analyze the effects of these rates on care outcomes. PMID: 26279952 [PubMed] (Source: Healthcare Informatics Research)
