Editorial Scope and Mission
Journal of Clinical Pathways® (JCP) features peer-reviewed educational and informational articles on issues related to the development, implementation, and evaluation of clinical pathways. Relevant topics include comparative-effectiveness research; big data analytics; methods in clinical pathway development; optimization of clinical pathway implementation and adherence; health economics and outcomes research; patient-centered outcomes; and alternative payment and value-based care models.
The mission of JCP is to provide a platform to advance the discussion of clinical pathways as a means to provide high-quality, cost-effective care. This is especially relevant to today’s health care landscape as it is undergoing a paradigm shift from a traditional fee-for-service to a value-based care model. Clinical pathways represent the uniting of real-world clinical and financial data with clinical practice as a means to drive precision and optimization of care for patients. While early clinical pathways efforts were limited to treatment options in Oncology, today’s clinical pathways show a much broader application, addressing treatment options across the entire spectrum of disease states.
JCP addresses the potential of clinical pathways to address rising health care costs, mitigate patient risk, reduce variability, and achieve better, more predictable clinical outcomes. Clinical pathways have been brought to the forefront as a key component to success in a value-based care environment. In this unique publication, all stakeholders, e.g. physicians, payers, and health care executives, can share their insights and results of clinical pathway initiatives designed, implemented, and evaluated in their organizations.
While other related journals may consider health care economics or clinical practice research more broadly, members of the editorial panel are recognized as leaders in the clinical pathway arena, supporting the targeted focus of JCP. As a result, JCP is positioned to address specifically the topic of clinical pathways as a component of a value-based care strategy; the use of clinical and real-world evidence to drive treatment decision-making; and the early learnings and experiences of all health care stakeholders as they implement new models to provide high-quality care, control costs, and enhance patient engagement and satisfaction.
