Children with recurrent fevers could have an infection, a malignancy or a rheumatologic disease. A comprehensive center at Cleveland Clinic specializes in the evaluation, treatment and management of these young patients.

As private and federal payers begin to change the reimbursement structure to reward providers based more on quality than volume, Cleveland Clinic is creating disease-specific care paths.

More than 50 care paths are in development or completed across the Cleveland Clinic health system.
