Boston Children's Hospital - Standardized Clinical Assessment and Management Plans

About Us

Our mission is to deliver a novel and systematic approach to informing and improving healthcare delivery, which goes beyond the current tools – retrospective studies, prospective trials, and clinical practice guidelines – while accomplishing three goals:

  1. Reduce practice variation
  2. Improve patient care
  3. Decrease ineffective or unnecessary resource utilization

Standardized Clinical Assessment and Management Plans (SCAMPs) serve to take a relatively heterogeneous patient population and through a process of iterative analysis and modification of standardized assessment and management algorithms, SCAMPs allow the intrinsic biologic variability in a patient population to emerge and be understood. SCAMPs can be used to complement our currently available tools in order to result in incremental and sustained improvement in health-care delivery.
