Abstract
At present, focus of health services is shifting to Patient Centered Care, where healthcare is directed towards controlled clinical strategy management, so that health organizations are more efficient without sacrificing the quality of services given. The European Pathway Association suggests that Clinical Pathway (CP) is seen as a tool to improve the quality and efficiency of evidence-based treatment and is used as communication tool among professionals to manage and standardize results-oriented treatment. CDC states 87% of stroke are stroke infarction which is serious cause of long-term disability. This study used systematic review, articles downloaded from online databases such as ProQuest, Scopus and national journal, papers published from 2010 to 2020, with keywords clinical pathway, length of stay (LOS), patient outcome, and stroke. In this study, author used 11 papers, 8 papers were observational studies, 3 papers were experimental studies. All papers were based on statistical analysis. There are 7 studies conducted in abroad and 4 studies are from Indonesia. There were 7 papers that provided positive information that showed significant results about the relationship between CP implementation with LOS and patient outcome, meanwhile 4 papers stating there was no relationship between CP implementation with LOS and patient outcome. Based on the results, a positive relationship was found between CP implementation with LOS and patient outcome in stroke patients. This needs to start from the process of preparing CP which involves multidiscipline, socialization, and control of all parties involved.
