4 Approaches to Implement Evidence-Based Care Practices
Implementing evidence-based care practices can improve quality, reduce care variation and lower costs.
Here are Mr. Burnett's four recommendations:
1. Form collaborative, focused work teams. Multidisciplinary teams of clinicians can develop evidence-based care guidelines for specific diagnosis-related groups or conditions.
2. Plan for proactive change management. A physician change management strategy should include credible data with benchmarks illustrating comparisons between cost and quality outcomes of different physicians.
3. Create an accountability structure. An accountability model should include metrics for expected utilization of pathways, order sets and protocols.
4. Remove barriers to coordinated, interdisciplinary care. Daily interdisciplinary care team meetings and other processes can support a collaborative approach to care.
