Collaborating
to help clinical
pathway transformation

Careflow Optimization

Taking an end-to-end and patient-centered approach to healthcare quality improvement by mapping roles and responsibilities as well as information needs to remove barriers, we help create new care pathways, support clinical decision making and enhance patient care.

Optimization of careflows across the health continuum can bring:
 

  • Standardization of care for a disease type and reduction of unnecessary variation
  • More effective utilization of resources along the clinical pathway
  • Enhanced communication between care providers
Aligning and engaging stakeholders – learn more about how we use experience flow mapping.

A strategic approach for results 
 

  • Data analytics:
    Our team analyzes available population health data to create valuable insights on certain disease types and their management in a specific healthcare environment.

  • Stakeholder interviews:
    We conduct a series of interviews, workshops, and surveys with stakeholders along the clinical pathway, mapping their information needs and requirements and uncovering unnecessary obstacles or delays in patient care.

  • Recommendations and results:
    Philips provides strategic guidance, working collaboratively with client teams to help improve communication between care providers and develop effective alternative ways of working.

How we enable the transformation process

Experience Flow Mapping

Experience flow mapping

Experience Flow Mapping is a unique and structured methodology to provide an insights-based view of the patient journey and clinical processes. We map-out the data points and insights gained from deep data analysis as well as stakeholder interviews and workflow observations.

 

The experience flow map visually summarizes the patient journey, areas of concern, and the most impactful opportunities for improvement. These maps are usually the size of a meeting room wall.
