Care Pathways

Gastric Bypass Care Pathway

Overview of the care pathway

We can divide the gastric bypass care pathway into 3 phases:

  1. Baseline / intake
  2. First consultation
  3. Long-term follow-up post-treatment (until 1,5 years post-treatment)

Baseline / intake

The care pathway is automatically started when a consultation is booked with the patient. Two weeks before this consultation, the patient is asked to fill in the following questionnaires:

  1. Intake form (questions about medication, weight, height, if the patient is smoking, etc.)
  2. Bariatric Analysis and Reporting Outcome System (BAROS)
  3. Physical Activity Measurement (PAM)

Awell automatically calculates the BMI & PAM. We push those results together with the PROM/PREM responses to the EMR.

First consultation

In the first consultation, a healthcare professional can indicate what therapy needs to be followed:

  1. Conservative treatment
  2. Surgery
  3. Multidisciplinary program + surgery

Besides, they can also indicate to send a survey about their eating habits.


After treatment, we send follow-up PROMs/PREMs to the patients at 3 weeks, 4 months, 9 months, 1 year and 1,5 year follow-up. The following questionnaires are send:

  1. Bariatric Analysis and Reporting Outcome System (BAROS)
  2. Physical Activity Measurement (PAM)
  3. Follow-up questionnaire (questions about general health, quality of life, weight, height, etc.)

Awell automatically calculates the BMI & PAM. We push those results together with the PROM/PREM responses to the EMR.


From your EMR to scheduling or billing, Awell easily connects with your systems so you can create powerful care pathways that tie disjointed systems together.


The following patient-reported-outcomes are visualized in the care pathway:

  • Physical Activity Measurement (PAM)
  • Heatmap based on the follow-up questionnaire


The gastric bypass care pathway offers numerous benefits that will increase efficiency on the one hand and improve the quality of care for both patient and provider on the other.

  • Based on pre-test / post-test result, we see that the care pathway managed to reduce the consultation time by 10 minutes (33% consultation time reduction)
  • Capacity increase by 30%
  • Automatic scoring calculations
  • Integrated with your systems (Electronic Medical Record, scheduling, medical billing, online pharmacy & fulfilment, e-prescribing, insurance eligibility....)
  • Decreased administrative burden for the care team
  • Automatic alerts to the care team if patients reports alarming Patient-reported-outcomes
