Dorsata is pleased to announce that The Penn Medicine Center for Evidence-based Practice (CEP) launched the new “Penn Pathways” program yesterday on the Dorsata platform. The “Penn Pathways” program has been developed by the Office of the Chief Medical Officer to foster the consistent practice of high value care across Penn Medicine. There are already more than 30 clinical pathways for use by physicians and nurses on the site, including pathways for evaluating and managing patients with gastrointestinal bleeds, infections, delirium, hemoptysis, urinary catheters, and cardiac ischemia and arrhythmias.
The Dorsata web and mobile applications provide Penn Medicine a central site to house, review, manage and disseminate clinical pathways used and developed by clinicians across service lines and disease teams, as well as ambulatory clinics and inpatient units. Nikhil Mull, MD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine and Assistant Director of CEP has developed procedures and infrastructure to support Penn Pathways, and has been working alongside stakeholders to facilitate pathway development.
Going forward, Dorsata and Penn Medicine will work collaboratively to develop new ways to not only drive adoption of evidence-based guidance at the point of care, but also to drive more collaboration amongst wider audiences of clinicians to build pathways. We couldn’t be happier with the partner we have in Penn Medicine. Our shared values will vastly advance the development and dissemination of the Dorsata vision.
