Public and private insurers increasingly use quality payment programs as a tool to improve quality of care in primary care settings. However, little is known about primary care providers' perspectives on whether and how quality payment programs improve diabetes quality of care. In this qualitative study, the authors conducted semi-structured interviews and focus groups with 23 providers from March to June 2015. Transcripts were analyzed to identify key themes using the immersion-crystallization method. Almo...
There is only limited and conflicting evidence on the effectiveness of Pay-for-Performance (P4P) programmes, although they might have the potential to improve guideline adherence and quality of care. We therefore aim to test a P4P intervention in Swiss primary care practices focusing on quality indicators (QI) achievement in the treatment of patients with diabetes.
The benefits of pay-for-performance schemes in improving the quality of care remain uncertain. There is little information on the effect of removing incentives from existing pay-for-performance schemes.
The rising burden of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has the potential to have a negative impact on the quality of care delivered to patients with IBD. Quality of care has been described by the World Health Organization as "the extent to which health care services provided to individuals and patient populations improve desired health outcomes." Variation in care has been identified as a key barrier to achieving quality of care in IBD. Assessment of quality of care attempts to minimize variation in care. Qu...
The National Committee for Quality Assurance urges socioeconomic risk adjustment to payments, not quality measures.
The study analyzes the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) of the informatization of parasitic disease prevention and control in China, and puts forward the development strategies, in order to provide the reference for accelerating the informatization of parasitic disease prevention and control.
Despite the growing importance of long-term care for older adults, there has been limited attention to its quality assurance issues in Japan. To start planning the initiation of continuous quality improvement in long-term care hospitals, we explored how nurses and care workers themselves perceived current approaches to quality assurance and improvement on their ward. We interviewed 16 licensed nurses and nine care workers, transcribed and analyzed data using qualitative content analysis techniques, and deri...
NHS trusts across the country are facing unprecedented financial pressures, along with rising levels of demand and widespread variation in surgical quality and cost. There is a moral and financial imperative to provide the most efficient use of resources in order to ensure sustainability of a system that is free at the point of use, and provide consistently high-value care for patients across the country. Delivering 'value' does not mean any reduction in the quality of care - it means achieving the same or ...
We study how physicians respond to financial incentives imposed by episode-based payment (EBP), which encourages lower spending and improved quality for an entire episode of care. Specifically, we study the impact of the Arkansas Health Care Payment Improvement Initiative, a multi-payer program that requires providers to enter into EBP arrangements for perinatal care, covering the majority of births in the state. Unlike fee-for-service reimbursement, EBP holds physicians responsible for all care within a di...
This analysis of the Georgian health system reviews developments in its organization and governance, health financing, health care provision, health reforms and health system performance. Since 2012, political commitment to improving access to health care, to protecting the population from the financial risks of health care costs and to reducing inequalities has led to the introduction of reforms to provide universal health coverage. Considerable progress has been made. Over 90% of the resident population b...
In Slovenia, quality of care at the primary healthcare level is formally a priority, but the legislation to ensure quality in this area is proceeding very slowly. The first steps towards a systematic quality control system in Slovenian family medicine were implemented with the initiation of an ongoing project of renewed family medicine practices in 2011 and the introduction of quality indicators. In 2017, an initiative by the Ministry of Health and the Department of Family Medicine at the Faculty of Medicin...
We aimed to develop a graphical procedure for benchmarking quality of life care results using the Long-Term Care Quality of Life (LTC-QoL) scale. While clinical care quality benchmarking is now well established, similar research for quality of life (QOL) aged care benchmarking has received scant attention. Data from 10 facilities utilizing the LTC-QoL scale were analysed to establish baseline statistics for developing a graphical procedure for QOL benchmarking. Client LTC-QoL records were tested with varima...
The US healthcare system is shifting towards reimbursement for quality over quantity of care. Quality measures are tied to financial incentives in these healthcare models. It is important that surgeons become familiar with quality measures addressing ventral hernia repair and understand candidate measures that may drive future quality measure development.
Increasing the number of underrepresented minority (URM) physicians improves access and quality of care. URMs are more likely to practice primary care and work in underserved communities. The racial and ethnic diversity of family physicians lags behind the general population. To create a more diverse residency, the Boston Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program (BMCFMRP) developed, implemented, and evaluated a strategic plan for diversity recruitment.
The alternative payment model (APM) is a nontraditional financial arrangement that rewards health care providers who deliver cost-effective, high-quality care. Now we are facing the possibility that pharmaceutical manufacturers and insurers will embrace APMs as a payment mechanism in some situations.
To examine characteristics and locations of high- and low-quality skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and whether certain vulnerable individuals were differentially discharged to facilities with lower quality ratings.
Quality of care may help explain the high burden of disease in maternal, newborn and child health in low- and middle-income countries even as access to care is improved. We explored the determinants of quality of antenatal care (ANC) in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
An unexpected return to clinic (URTC) visit can place a substantial financial burden on patients and families while stressing the health care system. Our SMART aim was to decrease the rate of URTC visits from 1.8 per 100 patient follow-up visits by 50% using quality improvement methodology.
Involvement of palliative care experts improves the quality of life and satisfaction with care of patients who are in the last stage of life. However, little is known about the relation between palliative care expert involvement and quality of dying (QOD) in the hospital. We studied the association between palliative care team (PCT) consultation and QOD in the hospital as experienced by relatives.
Over the past few years, a significant overuse of radiological investigations influenced the quality and cost of healthcare of the country as it may lead to non-compliance of the patient due to non-affordability and also may harm the patient in terms of radiation hazards. Pakistan, being a low-income, resource-constraint country, is facing financial impact on families as well as health system due to multiple reasons.
The extent to which financial considerations alter intensive care unit (ICU) decision making is poorly understood.
Patients and families may experience 'non-physical' harm from interactions with the healthcare system, including emotional, psychological, socio-behavioral or financial harm, some of which may be related to experiences of disrespect. We sought to use the current literature to develop a practical, improvement-oriented framework to recognize, describe and help prevent such events.
Palliative care has evolved from providing care for patients near end of life into a specialized discipline focused on addressing the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of patients throughout the trajectory of an illness. For patients with metastatic cancer, timely referrals to palliative care are essential in order to have a meaningful impact on their quality of life. Recommendations for screening patients for palliative care have been offered by professional organizations; however, screening...
