"I'm convinced that with the help of Clinical Pathways we will be able to save a huge amount of expenses. And after all we can also improve the quality of patient care through standardized and proven processes. With the help of IT, many processes will be simplified and will make activities easier for staff members," says Cornelia Müller-Wenzel, head of Central Controlling at the Bundesknappshaft Hospital in Bottrop.
