At Arkansas Children’s we provide the highest quality medical care. By utilizing clinical pathways as tools to guide evidence-based medical care for our pediatric population, and making them available to clinicians, we aim to reduce variation, improve quality of care, and maximize patient outcomes.

About the Clinical Pathway Program

Clinical pathways are developed by pediatric clinical experts and translate clinical practice guideline recommendations into clinical processes of care within the unique culture and environment of Arkansas Children’s. It details the steps in a course of treatment or care in a plan, pathway, algorithm, or guideline, to standardize care for a specific clinical problem, procedure or episode of healthcare in a specific population. This process helps the clinician to provide care utilizing the latest scientific evidence and aids in medical decision making.
