What is Map of Medicine?

Map of medicine is an internationally recognised web–based software tool that has evidence-based clinical care pathways covering all major areas of healthcare.

Map of medicine allows clinicians from primary, secondary and tertiary care to access evidence based local guidance and clinical decision support at the point of care. Clinical care maps connect all the knowledge and services around a clinical condition and can be customised to reflect local needs by clinicians looking to support clinical decision making.

All 5 Midland DHBs (Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Lakes, Tairawhiti and Taranaki) and all of their Primary Health Organisations have collaborated to develop Midland Region NZ clinical pathways.

The trial is now complete and map of medicine is now ‘business as usual’.

Ultimately, map of medicine improves the patient’s journey through primary, secondary and tertiary care.

As usage of map of medicine increases and roll out progresses further, more of the DHB guidelines will be found. If you already have a log in and password, you can access the map using: http://mhn.mapofmedicine.com(external link)
