The epidemiological and social changes require new organizational models to meet patient’s needs. Can the clinical pathways be a tool to promote professional integration and quality of care? The experience of the Bologna Local Health Autority demonstrates that the use of a clinical pathway for the management of patients with hip fractures has improved its performance. The clinical pathway has established common criteria for the choice of rehabilitation setting. This pathway was applied to four different hospitals of the metropolitan area of Bologna. This experience shows an improvement in performance in all the hospitals, with a better organisational efficiency, a better appropriateness of the rehabilitation setting and better outcomes.
Keywords: Hip fracture, clinical pathways, disease management, clinical setting, evaluation scales, rehabilitation.
