Care pathways are often at the forefront of political thinking about health care practices in France without ever finding a durable means for their extension. Closely linked to funding of healthcare system, they have, once again, been the object of so many economical discussions in 2017, as part of a more optimistic climate of governance which is therefore more open to change. Our changing system, the development and increasingly chronic nature of diseases, the scale of technological breakthroughs, these are all factors driving this topic forward. The object of this work, after a necessary study of the semantics of the term “pathway” and even “funding”, was to identify all prerequisites and good practices for the stakeholders to develop a pilot pathway and then its relevant implementation in France. To do so, the members of the Round Table have relied on the presentation of examples of care pathways in order to identify triggers to a progressive, adapted extension to the whole territory. The group has identified key elements and priorities for the establishment of public funding beyond existing funding to incentive team work, particularly in the case of treatment rupture points and/or when they have diverging interests. Finally, creating a climate of confidence among patients, professionals, hospitals, the ARS, payers and manufacturers in handling change management will become the key challenges of the implementation of future pathways.Le texte complet de cet article est disponible en PDF.
