Abstract: Caremaps were developed to standardise care. They have evolved from text-based descriptions to flow-based diagrams. Standardising care is seen to improve patient safety and outcomes, and to reduce the costs of providing healthcare services, but contemporary caremaps are not standardised. This research investigates contemporary caremaps and proposes a standardised model for caremap content, structure and development. The proposed model is evaluated through two case studies to create caremaps for; 1) obstetric care during labour and birth, and; 2) management and for women with gestational diabetes mellitus, finding that it is an effective method for creating standardise caremaps.
