Epstein AM., Performance reports on quality: prototypes, prospects and problems. Canadian Institute for Health Information, Statistics Canada. 0000151713 00000 n [On-line.] ‘Healthy People 2010’ has two broad demography-based goals: firstly, the improvement of the quality and years of healthy life of an aging USA, and secondly, the elimination of health disparities among its diverse populations. At the national level, the US has a number of mostly still developing health system performance framework initiatives, namely: (a) a proposed national health system improvement framework [67]; (b) a population health improvement model [68]; (c) the National Health Care Quality Report [69]; and (d) two prominent, widely used but non-national, performance reporting initiatives – the Consumer Assessment of Health Plans Study (CAHPS) and the Health Employer Data Information Set (HEDIS®) [70]. If these factors are not considered when frameworks and PIs are developed for monitoring health vis-à-vis health system performance, one runs the risk of spurious conclusions about the relationship between health and health care (or more narrowly medical care) [112,113]. The 10 main data fields found in these databases are: health status, health care resources, health care utilization, expenditure on health, financing and remuneration, social protection, pharmaceutical market, non-medical determinants of health, demographic references, and economic references. is determined by three dynamics: predisposing factors, enabling factors, and need. [On-line.] Furthermore, there is a gap in the knowledge of how the resultant performance data are used to stimulate improvement and to ensure health care quality. For some of the PIs, quality, definition and availability of data are currently uncertain, while only Province-level data exist for a few others. DFID Resource Centre for Health Sector Reform. the Federal Government), States, and Territories jointly fund public hospitals and community care, whereas the Commonwealth uses its general taxation revenue to fund most out-of-hospital medical services and health research [50]. The selection criteria for the individual indicators address the overall importance of the aspect of performance or quality being measured, the scientific soundness and the feasibility of the indicators. On a national level, benchmarks are being developed but these already exist at territorial and state levels [59], as well as hospital levels [51,60].

The system is also exploring a widespread local use of PIs [5]. Internationally, WHO and OECD tackle the concept of effectiveness in terms of efficiency and health outcomes, reflecting an economic way of thinking. The NHS Explained, United Kingdom. According to Orem, the Self-Care Deficit Nursing Theory offers philosophical principles instrumental in the facilitation of quality healthcare (Comley, 1994). 10.21767/2572-5610.10003 . Nutley S, Smith PC. OECD and WHO), may be developed in a supportive framework (e.g. Examples of these PIs include: vaccination rates, avoidable hospitalizations by selected conditions, incidence of infectious diseases, low birth weight, perinatal mortality, infant mortality and avoidable mortality by selected conditions. The financial and non-financial incentives such as ‘earned autonomy’ [156] find more local application in the health system, and should be good management tools provided the standards are uniform, fair, and pragmatic. �����������MV-�9���:�I��$��.�:;��g���5hO�b|tI�m��ׁ⃅��XMD-X�6�Ulx�(���q�EAfA���L>L;�H�,�>��Q�Q�Հ�p�����@cT�65�0�1��|��A(���0�9S����b`�# This theoretical framework is subject to empirical validation and rejection. 0000007012 00000 n The authors used an example of a house without blueprint, similar to a study without theoretical framework.

International comparison could foster international benchmarking, improved quality, informed policy-making especially for health care spending [108] and on health technology diffusion [109], the sharing of good performance measurement and management practices [104], and hence could contribute to standardization of concepts and definitions [106]. These PI sets also undergo constant development and improvement, as new data sources are made available. Marmor TR, Mashaw J. Besides, the market dynamics of the US health care make ‘choice’ and ‘exit’ potent regulation mechanisms for driving performance and enforcing accountability [84]. Community-based integrated care: myth or must? @article{Rathert2008PersoncenteredWE, title={Person-centered work environments, psychological safety, and positive affect in healthcare: a theoretical framework. This paper therefore explores, individually, the conceptual bases, effectiveness and its indicators, as well as the quality improvement dynamics of the performance frameworks of the UK, Canada, Australia, US, World Health Organization, and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Quality information is new and complex, and most people don’t have a clear 'mental model' of quality in health care that they can use to understand your report. Some of these indicators also capture domains of accessibility and appropriateness, as is the case with ambulatory-care-sensitive conditions. Consumer perspectives on health care needs – reasons for seeking care – are conceived to cover: (a) staying healthy; (b) getting better; (c) living with illness or disability; and (d) coping with the end of life. Hence, timely public performance reporting at local, regional and national levels within an integrated information network is seen as a tool to drive improvement. theoretical frameworks that Performance framework.

Freedman DB., Clinical governance—bridging management and clinical approaches to quality in the UK. Furthermore, this framework is supported by periodical pan‐Canadian surveys to elicit consumer expectations, priorities, satisfaction, and opinions [31,33,37,38]. Mackenbach JP., The contribution of medical care to mortality decline: McKeown revisited. Many health professionals have adopted the Institute of Medicine (IOM) framework for health care quality, which refers to six “aims:” safety, effectiveness, timeliness, patient-centeredness, equity, and efficiency.

Frameworks. Subjected to the Performance Star Ratings System [28], the PIs will be published with any relevant assessments made by the CHI, giving the NHS organizations an overall performance rating. Examples are: percentage flu vaccination among people aged 65 years and over, percentage of patients aged 65 years discharged home within 28 days following hospital treatment for fractured hip, primary care management (emergency admission rates for acute conditions), mental health in primary care (age-standardized prescribing rates of benzodiazepines), prescribing rates of antibacterial drugs, prescribing rates of ulcer healing drugs, and organ donor rates.

Better health is thus considered the main objective – raison d’être – of a health system, and hence its primary goal. A key challenge to improving safety in health IT-enabled healthcare systems is to develop valid, feasible strategies to measure safety concerns at the intersection of health IT and patient safety. It then recommended federal patients’ rights legislation and national quality assessment and reporting. In the 1980s, amidst growing costs, the then Conservative government introduced the use of PIs using administrative and hospital data. http://www.latrobe.edu.au/qic/about.htm (. This paper advances such a framework. Health conditions, human function, life expectancy and well-being, and deaths are the four dimensions contained in the ‘health status and outcomes’ section of the framework. In Smith P (ed.).

Development work on the indicators hopes to achieve an operationalization of the inputs, outputs, and outcomes model [55,56] along various performance domains, while paying particular attention to national priority areas [57]. After creating and populating such a framework based on evidence, structure and needs, the government must go beyond the content of the framework to modify the context, or what we will term here as the performance environment in which it would be accepted, applied and appraised. 0000007476 00000 n 0000011391 00000 n The student is supposed to select and clarify the theoretical framework from the time the dissertation topic is initially conceptualized (Dooyeweerd as cited in Sire, 2004). Performance framework. Therefore, and given that conceptual frameworks are often the starting points in PI development, our aims are: to understand the underlying concepts of national and international performance frameworks for health systems; to explore effectiveness and its indicators; and to see how and in what context the resultant performance data are used to drive improvement. Background. 0000104024 00000 n 0000005043 00000 n For a country with a long history of a national approach to its health system and PIs, these new plans refocused the UK on a more ambitious coherent national framework (for performance assessment, management, accountability, and quality of care).

[On-line.] This discussion will analyze stepwise: the various conceptual bases, effectiveness as a concept, the resultant proxy roles of public health and health services, other operationalization issues surrounding indicators of effectiveness, the quality–effectiveness relationship, the mechanism of change, and briefly, the idea of ‘performance environment’. Such a performance environment will include the concept of performance management [104,161], but will pay specific attention to how a particular conceptual framework relates to any existing health information and communications infrastructure, public health initiatives, regulatory institutions, welfare and social services, health actors or users of the framework, strategic policies, incentives, ‘organizational culture’ [162], and management mechanisms.

Accreditation is another important quality tool in the UK NHS and its latest initiative, Improving Working Lives Standard, is designed to create working conditions that better equip NHS staff with skills to improve patient service. Its underlying concept is premised on integration of health care knowledge with high quality information technology to foster ‘learning and innovation’ [35]. 0000015277 00000 n The OECD compiles and publishes key indicators in printed (Health at a Glance) and electronic (OECD Health Data) formats [66,102]. 0000179933 00000 n Quality improvement initiatives.

The McKinsey Quarterly, Health Care. Effectiveness often implies, nationally, the achievement of high quality outcomes of care, or internationally, the efficient achievement of system objectives, or both. 0000023600 00000 n Simply put, the modern NHS organization can be viewed as having ‘strategic health authorities’ (from October 2002, after abolishing the old 95 health authorities in April 2002) and special health authorities. The Federal Medicare public insurance program only caters for the elderly (over age 65 years old) and the disabled, while the federal-state Medicaid program covers low income and disabled persons. This has led to the development of performance indicators for monitoring, assessing, and managing health systems to achieve effectiveness, equity, efficiency, and quality. � � minimum attainable) analyses, WHO estimates the health system’s potential. OECD (2015) Healthcare costs unsustainable in advanced economies without reform. Schneider EC, Lieberman T. Publicly disclosed information about the quality of health care: response of the US public. The Quality Improvement Council, a national non-profit organization, is another important promoter of quality, through its Standards and National Review and Accreditation Programs [63]. In the OECD framework, effectiveness is conceptualized as ‘health outcomes’ ‘defined narrowly as those changes in health status strictly attributable to the activities of health systems’ [104,105]. The Australian ‘effective’ dimension includes explicitly the time component, so as to evaluate whether health interventions are primarily achieving the expected or desired outcomes within the proper time context. 0000062172 00000 n Emmanuel EJ, Emmanuel LL. Theoretical Framework for Nursing Research and Learning Firstly, when developing a theoretical framework for nursing research and learning, knowledge from different fields is highly required. In either case, analysis and investigation may be required in order to identify how to improve performance. Epstein AM., Public release of performance data: A progress report from the front. Other targets include a reduction in waiting times for an outpatient appointment to a maximum of 3 months, and a reduction in the maximum wait for a hospital operation to 6 months, all by 2005 [20]. The theoretical or conceptual framework that an APRN selects and uses has a major impact on the assessments that are made and the nature of the interventions that are chosen to achieve individual outcomes. DALE is calculated from three types of data: the age-specific survival fraction, estimated from birth and mortality rates; the age-specific prevalence of each type of disability; and the weight assigned to each type of disability [7,99]. The role of performance measures for improving quality in managed care organizations. Mooney G., Judging goodness must come before judging quality – but what is the good of health care? General selection criteria employed in the framework require that these PIs be: worth measuring; measurable (valid and reliable) for diverse populations, paying particular attention to priority (‘indigenous and bush’) populations; understood by people who need to act; able to galvanize action at national, state, or local levels either individually or collectively; relevant to policy and practice (i.e. ��;0 ��@i �ė@:�������0�a`;`Ġ��A�e� Issues.

The use of process and outcome PIs is said to mirror the interests of American consumers and providers in practice-related (or outcome-validated process) and outcome indicators [69]. Locally, intra- and inter-organizational performance comparison and benchmarking may drive improvement. Stewardship at the national level encompasses the definition of basic strategies for the whole health system, the assurance of an enabling environment for all health actors, and the promulgation and maintenance of rules for the system [7,98]. The Australian Council on Health Care Standards is an independent, non-profit organization that undertakes performance assessment and accreditation [62]. Quality of care and safety are such major political and public issues [5,77] driving the US national health system initiatives that a whole framework for multi-level reporting has been commissioned to track health care quality progress at national, state and local levels. 0000154715 00000 n Economists fight for cost-effective immunization programs, best resource allocation, and maximal social benefits with minimum societal inputs or costs. Indicators for the ‘effectiveness’ dimension are drawn mostly from the prevention and early detection performance areas of population health, and as such include HIV education and the practice of safe sex, as well as breast screening and detection of small size cancers. In judging how well the objective of good health is being achieved, WHO also uses the indicator disability-adjusted life expectancy (DALE), an estimate of the number of years that a person would live in full health. Another powerful incentive identified in the national framework is the existence of enhancement funds for institutions, and a number of local and national financial incentives aimed at health care providers [50,64]. Quality, management, and policy issues. Ways are then explored to maximize achievement of these objectives, thus fine-tuning the service and care processes, changing patterns of delivery, or simply making the objectives more realistic and attainable [114]. Performance framework. Operationally, the ‘effective’ dimension can subsume the domains of quality, appropriateness, access and timeliness. The overwhelming drive has been improving health [110] and managing the health system around the consumer. PIs that can populate such a system re-invention framework are accessible in the National Quality Measures Clearinghouse™ (NQMC™), a national repository of indicators maintained by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality [74]. A tide of health reforms in the 1990s saw the creation, by provincial and territorial governments, of legislated health regions that oversee the daily operation of the health system [32].
