A shareable clinical pathway for anemia management

Abstract

While anemia is a common condition, it can be challenging to address because of its multifactorial and complex nature. As a result, diagnosis and management for some patients may be suboptimal. According to the Royal Society of Medicine, anemia is in many cases poorly assessed or not investigated and there are currently no defined national guidelines on management pathways.

A shareable clinical pathway is a visual model that is both human readable and machine automatable. Such a standardized process can improve the efficiency and quality of anemia treatments through improved workflows and better clinical decisions. Automation allows routine tasks to be handled effectively, leaving more time to address complex cases, while the visual representation enables the transparency needed for all stakeholders to understand what has happened and why.
