Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

The advent of managed care, decreased reimbursement, and competition among providers has forced acute care institutions to examine care delivery. Clinical paths provide a method that manages patient care toward positive outcomes within a cost-effective environment. A collaborative project for total joint patients beginning with the office visit and continuing through the entire episode of care is described.
