Experts discuss the Estonian health care quality measurement system

This week a health care quality summer university is being held in Tallinn, where experts from Denmark and Sweden introduce the quality indicators system used in their countries. The possibilities of making field-related cooperation more efficient with Estonia are also discussed. The summer university serves as the continuation of a seminar held in Tartu in January, which concentrated on the indicators of health care quality. Assuring quality in health care, measuring and assessing it is of major importance in order to achieve the best possible treatment result for both an individual as well as the society as a whole.

In cooperation with WHO and the Performance Assessment Tool for Hospitals (PATH) group, the development of quality measurement indicators has been conducted in Estonia since 2006; the project involves six hospitals. The summer university is organised in cooperation with the University of Tartu, the University of Southern Denmark, the WHO PATH coordinating centre in Krakow and the Estonian Health Insurance Fund. The summer university lasts for two days and the participants include a total of 30 field experts.   Additional information: Katrin Romanenkov
