BackgroundHealthcare providers are facing an enormous cost pressure and a scarcity of resources. They need to realign in the tension between economic efficiency and demand-oriented healthcare. Clinical guidelines and clinical pathways are used in German hospitals to improve the quality of care and to reduce costs at the same time. Clinical guidelines provide evident medical knowledge for diagnostic and therapeutic issues, while clinical pathways are a road map of patient management. The…
