The Trouble with Putting Care Management in a Box

The Trouble with Putting Care Management in a Box



About the above box (please go read it).

I was struggling once with implementations of clinical pathways and an MD told me the solution, really only solution, was an educated patient.  The patient was the only one who could tell us if he or she was on the pathway so to speak.  Technology and the cell phone over the means now to empower patients.  They're seldom mentioned as participants in these discussions and they're really central to making management work.  The reality is the patient does it and the technology should be built on that foundation.
