Improving Population Health Quality

The search for health, well-being and better health care may be at a crossroads. The pandemic revealed major gaps in the quality and equity of the system. Concern for safety, including the safety of the workforce, has become critical, as it is not possible to simply repair and rebuild, we must redesign to build the health system of the future.

 

Improving health care is a complex undertaking, sensitive to many environmental variables and which requires attention to evidence-based interventions to demonstrate effectiveness and improve the quality of care.

 

The benefits from technological and digital evolution are numerous and its future looks promising. However, it is essential that these new ways of promoting health, preventing and treating diseases are better disseminated and, even more so, that people are empowered and qualified to do so.

 

The field of health care quality is still evolving and remains inaccurate. However, more than 50 years of international experience point the way to universally applicable and practical methods of improvement, which take into account barriers and facilitators, exploring the knowledge of human and systemic factors that affect the quality of health care.

 

The leaders of this system have a real opportunity for significant and lasting change, and they cannot let this moment pass. The science of quality and reliability provides the direction, method and tools needed for transformational and sustainable change.

 

Safe and quality health care is a decisive factor for the well-being and development of contemporary societies. The interoperability of information and operational efficiency are highlighted in this regard, since they enable better quality assistance at lower costs.
