The correct organization of clinical care networks has allowed the provision of services at all levels (corporate, regional, national) whose governance is characterized by effectiveness, clinical and organizational appropriateness and efficiency in the "intensive" use of dedicated resources and technological innovation. The evolution of taking care of the patient from the fragmentation of the processes to the unity of the clinical-care pathways, had important repercussions on the quality of the prevention, diagnosis and therapy interventions, but at the same time, required an important intervention on the expense factors. In planning a sustainable redevelopment of regional health services, the Regulation prescribes "the definition of the qualitative, technological, quantitative and technological standards related to hospital assistance", establishes an effective model of cooperation between the provider structures, at the which assign specific and structured roles according to standard features such as the catchment area, the volumes of activities provided and the outcomes of the treatments.
Keywords: Clinical pathways, clinical governance, sustainability, clinical pathways, team.
