1st Workshop on Pilot Implementation of the Performance Assessment Tool for quality improvement in Hospitals (PATH) : Barcelona, Spain, 22-24 February 2004
Workshop on Pilot Implementation of the Performance Assessment Tool for quality improvement in Hospitals (PATH) (1st : 2004 : Barcelona, Spain); World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2004 )

The objective of this workshop was to organize the pilot implementation of a Performance Assessment Tool for quality improvement in Hospitals (PATH) developed by WHO Europe in a sample of hospitals in six European countries (Belgium, Denmark, France, Lithuania, Poland/Silesia Region and Slovakia) and two countries outside Europe (South Africa/Kwazulu Natal and Canada/Ontario). The PATH project aims to provide tools to support hospitals in assessing their performance, questioning their own results, and translating them into actions for improvement, or benchmarking. At the workshop, a group of experts in performance assessment and country focal points drawn from hospital managers, physicians, technical experts in information systems, etc., drafted a strategic plan for each participating country, identifying key stakeholders, roles and responsibilities and priorities for action, agreed on recommendations on standard operational definitions of indicators across countries, and discussed data collection issues and data quality control mechanisms. A calendar for implementation was agreed upon. All participants were aware that comparisons are sensitive and should be interpreted with great caution because of varying local contexts. This is incremented at international level. PATH relies as much as possible on available data to minimize the burden of data collection. A template for data collection is being prepared. Mobilizing staff at all levels will be an important factor to the access of the project

Adjustment factors to per capita health-care indicators in countries with expatriate male-majority populations
Hussin, A.H. ( 2014 )

From 2000 to 2010, the population in the Gulf Cooperation Council [GCC] countries underwent an increase of 53%, compared with an average global increase of 13%. The rates varied by country, ranging from 23% in Oman to 198% in Qatar. The main driving force for this sharp increase in population was the high demand for immigrant labour. The aim of this study was to adjust the population in the GCC countries in order to ensure that the comparisons of health-care key performance indicators with other countries account for the composition of the populations. The conclusion of the study was that adjusting the population in the GCC is instrumental for determining health spending and health outcomes, and that inaccurate forecasting would result in serious overestimation of the need for GCC countries to invest in the health-care sector. Policy-makers can utilize the population models in this study to accurately plan for health-care delivery

De 2000 à 2010, la population des pays du Conseil de coopération du Golfe a augmenté de 53 %,par rapport à une augmentation moyenne mondiale de 13 %. Les pourcentages varient d'un pays à l’autre, allant de 23 % à Oman à 198 % au Qatar. L'importante demande en main-d’oeuvre immigrante constituait l'élément moteur principal de cette forte augmentation de la population. La présente étude visait à ajuster les populations dans les pays du Conseil de coopération du Golfe afin de garantir que les comparaisons des indicateurs de performance clés pour les soins de santé avec d'autres pays tiennent compte de la composition des populations. L'étude concluait dans un premier temps que l'ajustement des populations des pays du Conseil de coopération du Golfe était essentiel pour déterminer les dépenses de santé et les résultats sanitaires,et dans un deuxième temps que des prévisions inexactes entraîneraient d'importantes surestimations de la nécessité pour les pays du Conseil de coopération du Golfe d’investir dans le secteur des soins de santé. Les responsables politiques peuvent utiliser les modèles de population de cette étude pour planifier avec exactitude la prestation de soins de santé

Implementing health promotion in hospitals : manual and self-assessment forms / edited by Oliver Groene
Groene, Oliver; World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2006 )

Health promotion is an integral part of the health care process and is related to clinical, educational, behavioural, and organizational issues. Quality improvement needs to embrace health promotion activities in order to make sure that effective approaches are used and continuously being monitored to improve outcomes. As many common quality management tools do not address health promotion activities explicitly, we developed this "Manual on implementing health promotion in hospitals". Its aim is to enable managers and health professionals to: assess health promotion activities in hospitals; improve the capacity of health care organizations in improving health promotion activities; formulate recommendations for the improvement of health promotion activities in hospitals; involve all professionals and the patient in improving the quality of care; improve the coordination of care with other providers of care; improve the health and safety of staff and patients. Individual hospitals, quality agencies and in particular members of the International Network of Health Promoting Hospitals are encouraged to use this tool and to assess and improve the quality of health promotion activities in health care
