Strengthening health outcomes through continuous quality improvement: PATH’s approach to CQI

PATH

, , ,

A strong health system must be able to monitor quality of care and work to improve it to achieve better health outcomes. It can be further strengthened if the culture is such that health care workers, patients, and community members are empowered to take action towards improving their health services. However, the complexity of health care systems makes it difficult to identify whether health facilities are meeting targets, where they fall short, and how they can improve service delivery. Continuous quality improvement (CQI) refers to an iterative, data-driven process of empowering health care workers to improve health service delivery by identifying problems, implementing solutions and monitoring efforts to improve care, then measuring the effectiveness of these efforts. This brief details PATH's approach to CQI.

Compasses when there are no maps: The growing importance of adaptive management to the development sector and the role of real-time data

PATH

, , ,

In a world with dynamic population movements, outbreaks with cross-border implications, and increasingly politicized health issues, linear and inflexible approaches to global health programs are ineffective. Adaptive management has emerged as one possible approach that embodies iteration and adaptability in program design and implementation to help with navigating complex and dynamic environments. Real-time data systems can strengthen adaptive management by generating data that can more rapidly inform tactical adaptations, changes, and future planning. This white paper challenges traditional project management in the global development sector. It encourages donors, policymakers, implementers, and ministries of health to set a new precedent of adaptive programming.

The Digital Implementation Investment Guide (DIIG) aims to help governments and technical partners plan a digital health implementation that focuses on one or more health programs to support national health system goals. The Guide is designed to walk users of the document step-by-step through planning, costing and implementing digital health interventions within a digital health enterprise. This consists of selecting digital health interventions that are aligned with identified health needs, appropriate to a specific country context and integrated with existing technologies and the broader digital architecture. Users of the Guide will learn from diverse experiences deploying digital health technologies over the past decade and will be guided through a systematic approach to designing, costing and implementing meaningful digital health interventions that are part of a digital health enterprise. The DIIG was developed by PATH, the World Health Organization, the United Nations Children's Fund, and the United Nations Population Fund, among other partners.
