Quality Measurement in Israeli Health Care: Technical Tools in Health System Context
David Chinitz, a professor of health policy and management in the School of Public Health at Hebrew University and Hadassah in Jerusalem, will discuss his paper about measuring and reporting the quality of health care, which has become an assumed feature of health systems around the world. His paper shows only sporadic knowledge about the impact of quality-measurement programs and even less about how such tools are integrated into the culture of health care delivery organizations. Chinitz will offer comparisons to quality measurement in the United States.
