Mercy & Drupal changing how healthcare is delivered

Brian Boyer

In an effort to improve the way healthcare is delivered Mercy has created several Care Pathways to direct care based on evidence and previous outcomes.  Mercy has built a tool leveraging Drupal to make it easy for the physicians and nurses to collect evidence and knowledge and store it in a shared location.  They will then collaborate within the site to define the appropriate pathway for a specific diesease within the tool and will attach the supporting documentation for each of the defined steps in the pathway.  Once a pathway is completed it then gets posted into an area of the intranet site (Baggot Street) for all nurses and physcians to access if they have questions as to why that step was defined in the pathway.  With this evidence based practice we can direct care to a better outcome consistently across our 34 hospitals.
