The Spaghetti Map
The Spaghetti Map is a tool the LVSUP uses to help patients visualize a snapshot of their lives medically, mentally, and spiritually. A pre-intervention map and post-intervention map are created to demonstrate a decrease in hospitalizations and increase in social and spiritual support.
The Pre-Intervention Spaghetti Map shows the tangled “spaghetti” that is the life of a super utilizer patient. The patient has several medical issues, and lacks “Mind” and “Spirit” support.
The Post-Intervention Spaghetti Map demonstrates an increase in the “Mind” and “Spirit” sections of the patient’s life, and a decrease or complete elimination of hospitalizations.
