The effort to create the first pathway began with the IT staff writing structured query language (SQL) code to extract the necessary data from the hospital’s Allscripts EHR, enterprise data warehouse, surgical, financial and corporate performance systems. This data was brought into the clinical variation management application using the FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) standard.
The hospital quickly implemented the new pneumonia pathway by changing the order set in its Allscripts EHR system. As a result, for the pneumonia care path, Flagler Hospital saved $1,350 per patient and reduced the length of stay (LOS) for these patients by two days, on average. What’s more, the hospital reduced readmission by 7 times—the readmission rate dropped from 2.9 percent to 0.4 percent, hospital officials report. The initial work saved nearly $850,000 in unnecessary costs—the costs were trimmed by eliminating labs, X-rays and other processes that did not add value or resulted in a reduction in the lengths of stay or readmissions.

Although adult use is now legal, finding a recreational dispensary will be difficult for Central Valley residents as many cities have moved to ban recreational operations, Fresno, Clovis, and Visalia among them.

Clovis was incorporated as a city in February 1912. Sadly, the lumber mill burned down in 1914 and was never rebuilt. Clovis still has remnants of its rich wild-west heritage, reflected in the slogan "Clovis – A Way of Life". The Clovis Rodeo is still in operation after 100 years. The bronco-carnival features big hats with lots of cattle, farmer's market, and festival. Recently "Old Town Clovis" was given a facelift of sorts to bring back its old charm and feeling - in a new (shiny) kind of way.
