HealthPathways is an online manual used by clinicians to help make assessment, management, and specialist request decisions for over 550 conditions.

Rather than being traditional guidelines, each pathway is an agreement between primary and specialist services on how patients with particular conditions will be managed in the local context. Each health jurisdiction tailors the content of HealthPathways to reflect local arrangements and opinion, and deploys their own instance of HealthPathways to their clinical community.

Clinical Prioritisation Criteria (CPC) are clinical decision support tools that will help ensure patients referred for public specialist outpatient services in Queensland are assessed in order of clinical urgency.

CPC will be used by both referring practitioners when referring into the Queensland public hospital system and Queensland public specialist outpatient services when determining how quickly the patient should be seen (urgency category).

CPCs aim to ensure:

• Equitable assessment of patients regardless of where they live
• Specialist outpatient appointments that are delivered in order of clinical urgency
• Patients are ready for care at their first specialist outpatient appointment
• Improved referral and communications processes between referrers and specialist outpatient services.

Importantly, CPC will assist, rather than replace, clinical judgement and decision-making.

CPC will ensure referrers to Queensland public specialist outpatient services have access to evidence-based condition-specific clinical prioritisation criteria.

About HealthPathways


HealthPathways is an online manual used by clinicians to help make assessment, management, and specialist request decisions for over 550 conditions.

Each pathway provides clinicians with succinct assessment and management information at the point of care, including when and where to refer patients to local specialists and services.

Each health jurisdiction tailors the service mapping content of HealthPathways to reflect local arrangements, and available service options.

The target audience for HealthPathways is the primary care clinicians responsible for managing patients in the community, and for initiating requests (including referrals to hospital) for specialist assistance.
