Map of Medicine pathways represent the ideal starting point for clinically-led service improvement, design and redesign activities. The pathways are comprehensive, trustworthy and easy to understand, incorporating evidence-based information, expert knowledge and national policy.
Implementing the Map locally allows multi-disciplinary teams from across organisations to come together to adapt a pathway to meet local challenges, ensuring that patients remain at the centre of all decision making on care design and delivery.
Locally-adapted pathways are visible across organisational boundaries, communicating the redesigned services to commissioners and providers, enabling local innovation.
Organisations have used the Map to lower healthcare delivery costs, improve clinical effectiveness and reduce health inequalities. Map of Medicine offers a full implementation support package and can also help communities establish which topics to prioritise and provide change management consultancy to drive behavioural change.
