An Introduction to Patient Pathway Plus


In general, 80% of a hospital’s activity is generated by patients on an elective care pathway. It is essential to be able to manage the schedules of patients coming into the hospital, and to plan and manage the resources necessary to treat them effectively. To do so requires good systems and good processes.

Patient Pathway Plus is a digital hub for the complete management of all elective care pathways. It provides unparalleled levels of accuracy in respect of Referral to Treatment (RTT) that is easy to work with, removing huge inefficiencies associated with less able systems. With a solid technology foundation to work from, processes and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) can be refined and improved to manage patients more effectively and with total confidence.
