Description: World Bank Technical Paper No. 258. Quality of health care is a complex concept interwoven with value judgments about what constitutes good quality. This lack of linearity partly explains the large number of definitions of the concept of quality and the numerous methods of quantifying, ensuring, and improving it. This paper offers a choice of definitions and presents available models and methods for assessing, measuring, and improving this concept. The study proposes a model that uses three basic elements--structural inputs, process, and outcome--to guide efforts in selecting and organizing indicators. Structural inputs--buildings, equipment, drugs, medical supplies, vehicles, personnel, and money--are necessary for good quality. Process is what is actually done to and for the patient in giving and receiving care. Outcomes, the end result of the process of patient care, are measured by indicators of mortality, morbidity, and functional impairment. The author provides an up-to-date, comprehensive bibliography of articles and books on quality in general and on health care quality.
