The National Service Frameworks (NSFs) initiative, which is subordinate to the Public Service Agreement, will set national standards, establish performance measures for judging progress, define models for specific care groups or services, and set up implementation support programs [5]. 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. A commentary on ‘World Health Report 2000’. In addition to assisting managers and other decision-makers to make the right decisions at the right time and the right place, the initiative places the patient at the heart of this performance improvement drive through such empowerment exercises as consultations, surveys, health education and promotion, and community-based care initiatives [31,46]. 0000061637 00000 n Indicators of effectiveness. 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 Rural Health Information Hub is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under Grant Number U56RH05539 (Rural Assistance Center for Federal Office of … This theoretical framework is subject to empirical validation and rejection. WHO stipulates that the ‘scope of accountability’ should be approached on three levels, focusing on the performance of national systems, and of subsystems and institutions, and the overall attainment of health system goals. Donabedian defines quality as ‘the ability to achieve desirable objectives using legitimate means’ [128]. A theoretical framework consists of concepts and, together with their definitions and reference to relevant scholarly literature, existing theory that is used for your particular study. Contributions of the private sector are usually neglected in any study of official initiatives. A portrait of Canada’s health care system. http://www.latrobe.edu.au/qic/about.htm (. A framework is the conceptual underpinning of a study. Nursing As by the INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF NURSES (ICN, 1973) as written by Virginia Henderson: The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health. http://www.jcaho.org (, Foundation for Accountability, United States. EHSPI, Enhancing Health System Performance Initiative (of the WHO). The President’s Advisory Commission on Consumer Protection and Quality in the Health Care Industry. 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. Therefore, the indicators would reflect just about these areas or priority conditions. Internet sources used in the exploration can change and can bias retrieval where important hyperlinks are not readily accessible. It proposes that public and patient trust in health care in the UK appears to be shaped by a variety of factors. 0000080890 00000 n An interesting trend in all the frameworks is the implicit and explicit link between the concepts of ‘effectiveness’ and ‘quality’. The PCTs fund, plan and commission health services for their local communities, integrate health and social care for patients, and are poised to control 75% of the NHS budget eventually [13]. Eagle CJ, Davies JM. The WHO conceptual framework does not explicitly use the term effectiveness, but appears to operationalize health (improvement/outcome) as an all-embracing objective of the health system. – This paper seeks to address how and why trust relations in the NHS may be changing and presents a theoretical framework for exploring them in future empirical research., – This paper provides a conceptual analysis. 0000179152 00000 n http://www.modernnhs.nhs.uk (, National Patient Safety Agency, United Kingdom: http://www.npsa.org.uk. 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.

The NHS Performance Fund, designed to work in parallel with the Primary Care Initiative scheme and from April 2002, the Personal Social Service Performance Fund, will support local initiatives that contribute to the actualization of the NHS Plan. This will allow for benchmarking between organizations to boost quality improvement in four dimensions: responsiveness, system competence, work life, and client/community focus. 0000179545 00000 n The US has a staunch background in the development, analysis and reporting of PIs within the public domain and in health care networks albeit mainly fragmented in approach. In addition, the framework is driven by accountability to the patient (so as to rebuild public confidence) and to Parliament for public expenditure. 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. Whatever combination that is chosen will depend on who owns the performance framework thus calling for value judgment and balancing of perspectives, data availability and reliability, the exact priorities of the system, and the temporal nature of the defined outcome given the intervention. All four countries recognize and use regulatory mechanisms in order to achieve effectiveness and quality, as is seen in the example of the UK NHS [154,155]. Economists fight for cost-effective immunization programs, best resource allocation, and maximal social benefits with minimum societal inputs or costs. 0000150459 00000 n WHO and OECD present platforms for international comparisons of health systems, although such comparisons often require a framework for valid ‘lesson drawing’ [6]. The role of performance measures for improving quality in managed care organizations. [Online.] the maximum attainable in a health system) and a lower boundary (i.e. PIs require an operational definition of quality to be developed, since they are in essence a quantitative measure of quality [3]. At NHS Trust level, the framework has only four major performance areas: (a) clinical effectiveness and outcomes; (b) efficiency; (c) patient/carer experience; and (d) capacity and capability. Hurst J., Challenges for health systems in Member Countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. According to Orem, the Self-Care Deficit Nursing Theory offers philosophical principles instrumental in the facilitation of quality healthcare (Comley, 1994). Leatherman S, McCarthy D. Public disclosure of health care performance reports: experience, evidence and issues for policy. Introduction. Managers want to set goals, develop and implement immunization strategies for achieving them and measuring performance, and therefore need to use timely, prescriptive performance information to improve how the vaccination program is run, efficiently and effectively. Unfortunately, these objectives are sometimes unclear or too numerous to be manageable. 0000023600 00000 n If conceptually aware Several studies have debated the usefulness of such public disclosure of quality or performance data [130,139–143]. Carroll JS, Edmondson AC. Canadian Intergovernmental Conference Secretariat (CICS). Andrews LB, Stocking C, Krizek T et al. There is therefore multi-level use of professional accountability, guidelines, continued education, comparable indicator data, continuous quality improvement and accreditation. Background.

Currently, these dimensions, except acceptability, competence, and continuity, appear to be supported by several PIs. According to the IOM, health care ‘quality’ is ‘the degree to which health services for individuals and populations increase the likelihood of desired health outcomes and are consistent with current professional knowledge’ [76]. Comparing health system performance in OECD countries. Subsequently, the National Forum for Quality Measurement and Reporting was established in 1999 as a non-profit public–private partnership concerned with the promulgation and endorsement of core quality PIs (for the health system to gauge progress towards national goals) and provision of accessible information to all health actors [80,81]. The frameworks are linked to a combination of tools and initiatives to stimulate and manage performance and quality improvement. Nonetheless, much effort has been spent to eschew these potential biases, by being thorough and objective. This framework for thinking about the elements and relationships is also useful for considering high-priority research and evaluation needs, and we have used it as an important guide in developing this Evaluation Roadmap. It argues that standards should not be target group oriented.. http://www.oecd.org/ (. Theories are developed by researchers to explain phenomena, draw connections, and make predictions. Indeed, the four countries and two agencies use a combination of tools for performance and quality improvement. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in keeping with its establishing Convention signed in Paris on 14 December 1960 and enforced on 30 September 1961, has brought together countries sharing the principles of the market economy, pluralist democracy, and respect for human rights [101]. Smith R., The NHS: possibilities for the endgame: think more about reducing expectations. Moreover, the framework advocates that the intervention or care must be to people most at need. What theoretical framework is the best for measuring Health Details: The authors developed a theoretical framework for acceptability of healthcare interventions, and the processes are described therein. Providing performance information for consumers: experience from the United States. 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. }, author={Cheryl Rathert and D. R. May}, journal={Organizational ethics : healthcare… Regional Offices, the Modernization Agency and researchers will periodically assess these schemes, and their findings will be used to develop and spread best practices [30]. In practice, the studied countries seem to use mainly public health issues and priority areas of health care as proxies for health system objectives, perhaps reflecting an endeavor to link public health and health services within health system performance (Table 3). A thesis submitted in part fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Education College of 0000008159 00000 n 0000011391 00000 n Hence, the framework aims to link performance to system targets via its functions. According to Batalden and Davidoff, Quality Improvement is the combined and unceasing efforts of everyone to make the changes that will lead to better patient outcomes (health), better system performance (care) and better professional developm… The framework aims at performance comparison across States, Territories and nationally, thus encouraging improvement in identified areas within the health system. As such, the framework delineates a number of measures such as probability of mortality before the age 5 years, or between the ages of 15 and 59 years, life expectancy at birth, mortality by cause and sex, and disability measures. 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. with highest levels of performance) will have a free hand to decide where and how to use funds, while ‘two star’ ones will require the approval of their Regional Office. This theoretical framework is based on understanding the context within its broader structure, together with existing challenges and opportunities. these relationshipswere important for helping to improve health care outcomes [1]. 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). Jencks SF., Clinical performance measurement—a hard sell. A brief critical consumer guide. Secondly, we explore effectiveness as a dimension of performance and its indicators. The selective and still developing national indicator sets that populate this framework may in some areas span more than one domain of performance. The framework conceptualizes effectiveness of the health system as a performance dimension where ‘care/intervention/action achieves the desired result in an appropriate timeframe’ [55]. 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].

This report defines health systems, and sets out why they matter, their evolution, their goals, and their functions. Indicators of effectiveness. After comparing outcomes or performance components with desired targets or objectives, shortfalls must be identified and explanations put forward [152]. Health information technology (health IT) has potential to improve patient safety but its implementation and use has led to unintended consequences and new safety concerns. Ultimately, national health systems have their own priorities and must seek supporting structures for performance. A core theme of a modernized NHS, health care quality improvement has been transformed from its early 1990s managed internal market environment, where standard of care was reformed through professional clinical audit [21], to its present integrated care milieu with increased emphasis on quality under the concept of clinical governance. Two driving tenets of the NHS PAF are continuous service improvement and accountability [9,14,18].

The framework has three tiers: (a) health status and outcomes; (b) determinants of health; and (c) health system performance. Background. 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]. Accessed, The NHS Modernisation Agency, United Kingdom. When more countries link their databases on individual diagnoses, interventions and death, it is expected that longitudinal and disease-course analyses would make it easier to estimate comparative health outcomes. 0000154904 00000 n The IOM renders quality as increasing the likelihood of desired health outcomes, consistent with best current professional knowledge [76], and effectiveness as provision of services based on scientific knowledge to all who could benefit, avoiding overuse and underuse [67]. It finally combines these measures to estimate one measure of overall population health, terming it the ‘burden of disease’ or the numbers of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) lost.

Comparing and sharing best practice through benchmarking policy-making and accountability – political, public, and professional – are prominent improvement drives [153]. In the 1980s, a series of reports from the Royal Commission and Task Force ushered in health care reform across Canada [31]. 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 is understandable, given the growing concerns about safety, service delivery, and quality of patient care [122–127]. Beyond these are NHS Trusts (for acute and specialized hospital services), which in the flow chart are distal to the newly introduced Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) comprising GPs, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, opticians, NHS Walk-in Centers, Mental Health Trusts, Ambulance Trusts, NHS Direct, and population screening services. As a major drive for the Canadian framework, quality in health care is viewed as a multi-dimensional and a multi-perspective concept.
