Improving Value in Health Care: Measuring Quality
OECD | 07 Oct 2010 | ISBN: 9264094819 | 110 pages | PDF | 2 MB

This report is about how to improve quality in health care – a vital objective for health systems everywhere. Quality in health care is multifaceted and has various perspectives. Every patient has a right to receive timely, safe and effective care. Patients also have a right to be informed about the care process and about its risk and benefits. Those who fund and manage health care have a duty to ensure that scarce health care resources are used judiciously and wisely for the greatest public good.


Are breast cancer survival rates higher in the United States than in the United Kingdom and France?
Are a patient's chances of dying within 30 days after admission to a hospital with a heart attack lower in Canada than in Korea?
Are surgeons in some countries more likely to leave "foreign bodies" behind after operations or make accidental punctures or lacerations rates when performing surgery?
The need for answers to these kinds of questions and the value of measuring the quality of health care are among the issues addressed in this publication.

This publication describes what international comparable quality measures are currently available and how to link these measures to quality policies such as accreditation, practice guidelines, pay-for-performance, national safety programmes and quality reporting.
