Abstract

© 2018 Matar et al. Background: One of the main challenges to hospital patient flow and treatment includes the lack of a patient-centered approach, which in turn contributes to non-effective teamwork communication. Objectives: To introduce patient-centered approach by implementing electronic clinical pathways to support more effective teamwork communication. To study how to enhance teamwork communication in healthcare by implementing electronic clinical pathways. Methods: We propose a research model, integrating the Donbedian model and the socio-technical theory, to investigate the factors that influence teamwork communication in healthcare. This research applied a quantitative approach using a survey method that was designed along the same principles as in the related work. Preliminary data collection was conducted using the survey method for problem formulation. Results: Designed and developed a model for implementing electronic clinical pathways to enhance teamwork communication in healthcare. Conclusion: This study provides recommendations to hospitals to enhance teamwork communication in healthcare by implementing electronic clinical pathways.
