Understanding how to transform current patient journeys is crucial for assessing new opportunities in healthcare innovation.
We use a bespoke in-house pathway mapping tool to define steps within a pathway, visualise the overall pathway and resources used, and estimate the total costs. We can then predict and compare current pathways with theoretical ‘what-if’ pathways to show how new services and products could impact resource use. The theoretical pathway can be validated in healthcare settings using real world data or through a service evaluation.
Results can also be used to compare patient care and costs between services, for example, a national best practice guideline compared to actual practice, or to understand where there may be inequalities in care across geographical regions. Ultimately, these results enable dialogue and communication between stakeholders with different priorities.
