A Disease Registry is a database for people diagnosed with a particular disease, such as diabetes or hypertension. Hospital Disease Registries are specific to that hospital. Population disease registries are specific to a focused geographical sector such as a city, state, country, etc. A Clinical Pathway illuminates a potential standard of practice for the care associated with a particular disease. The pathway is a guideline that is used to optimize outcomes. Clinical Pathways are multidisciplinary management tools for evidence-based healthcare delivery protocol optimization targeting a specific disease and expected clinical course. Protocols are also useful tools for facilitating the coordination of care. Outcomes-based practice (sometimes called outcomes management) involves a combination of teamwork, continuous quality improvement, and process and outcome measurement. Outcomes based data provide the framework for establishing a Clinical Pathway.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
