FULL TEXT  


Clinical Pathways and the Case Management represent clinical and management tools for organizing patient care. These tools focus on results and use a multi-disciplinary approach, with the goal of providing high quality, cost effective care. Both systems require the care providers to interact with the institution or the healt care network. As health care is part of a refund system, the specialist must cooperate with personnel of other disciplines as a member of a team which works together to improve the quality of health care, while containing the costs. The Clinical Pathways and the Case Management are two tools for achieving these goals. The most important limit of a cost control system is the division split of health care into single components instead of considering the entire diagnostic course. Without doubt, the Disease Management appears to be the most effective control system of health care costs now available.
