Clinical pathways represent a strategy for responding to the current healthcare environment with a focus on managing care, reducing costs, increasing patient satisfaction, and improving quality. However, many healthcare organizations have found that implementing clinical pathways is not entirely successful even when they are based on sound evidence. The purpose of this case study was to describe and explain factors related to the success or failure of implementing a clinical pathway for congestive heart failure (CHF) patients in a 300-bed community hospital. The key factors involved in the nonadoption of the CHF pathway were inconsistencies in procedures and the work group culture.
