Medical Care Pathways

Guidelines & Protocols

Asante Health Network physicians work together to develop evidence-based medical care guidelines (also referred to as “pathways”) to treat patients with specific diseases and conditions. Adopting these guidelines reduces practice pattern variations.

The guidelines are available to AHN providers, leading to quality patient care and better cost control. They also help AHN evaluate and adjust patterns to best meet patient needs.
