This study is about the necessity of developing a national healthcare quality report to gauge progress in improving the performance of the health care delivery system in consistently providing high-quality care in Korea. As part of a two-year project, this study in its first year lays out the conceptual framework of measuring the quality of care in the present health care delivery system.
This report is composed of six chapters. The first chapter discusses the need for developing a national healthcare quality report. The second chapter examines the conceptual frameworks that are being employed in other countries to measure the quality of care on the national level. To understand domestic situation for measuring the quality of care, relevant policies and activities ongoing in Korea are also reviewed. In the third chapter benchmarking mainly with America’s National Healthcare Quality Report including broad dimensions of measuring quality of care, the overall design of Korea’s National Healthcare Quality Report was suggested. In the forth chapter, preliminary feasibility of the report in Korea is assessed by using the information or data which are open to the public, and quality measures of American’s National Healthcare Quality Report are actually produced as a major benchmark in the fifth chapter.
In the last, policy initiatives to make the quality report to be annually developed were suggested. This study should serve as a guide to develop the report by which to make year to year comparison of how the health care delivery system is doing to improve quality of care overall the nation.
