  • Health Data Collaborative - Quality of Care

    The Health Data Collaborative is a coalition of more than 30 global health partners, with the common goal of improving health data. This collaborative works alongside countries to improve the availability, quality and use of data for local decision-making.

    Working groups (time-limited groups of technical experts) are established to address specific technical issues and identify and fill technical gaps on the base of existing works.

    The working groups develop standards, indicators and other tools that help countries to collect, analyze and use good health data.

    The Quality of Care Working Group is one of the 5 working groups carrying out the mission of the Health Data Collaborative.

    The aim of this working group is to strengthen assessment of technical and experiential quality of care across health service delivery in order to improve quality of services and health outcomes. To do so, the working group will:
    1. Propose framework and core domains and measures/indicators and other methodologies (i.e. operational research, qualitative methods) to assess quality of care.
    2. Develop guidance on selection, collection, analysis, and interpretation of measures/indicators and other methodologies to assess quality of care.
    3. Support incorporation of quality of care measurement in management and improvement processes at the national and sub-national levels.

    Four work streams have been established:
    1. Work stream 1: Domains and Indicators
    a. Quality of care framework
    b. Inventory and set of key measures/indicators (existing and new)
    2. Work stream 2: Addressing Gaps
    a. Address identified gaps in quality of care measures/indicators.
    3. Work stream 3: Guidance Document
    a. Guidance document on selection, collection analysis, and interpretation of measures/indicators and other methodologies to assess quality of care
    4. Work stream 4: Country Engagement
    a. Field test and adapt guidance document in various health system contexts
    b. Engage with up to 5 countries to strengthen quality of care assessment within the country-led M&E platform.

    Next steps will be:
    - Definition of the members of the work streams
    - Definition of the responsibility (time commitment/resource allocation) for the work streams
    - Definition of the budget and the human resources requirements
