Overall Objective of the HealthPros research projects on Healthcare Performance Measurement (Workpackage 1):

To measure healthcare system performance in five healthcare system strengthening performance areas in a reliable, valid, meaningful and actionable way based on available healthcare data to support the achievement of the Triple Aim.
The five healthcare system strengthening performance areas are: 1. Implementation of person-centred integrated service delivery models; 2. Patient and family engagement in healthcare; 3. Addressing inequality in access to quality healthcare for vulnerable populations; 4. Better outcomes through continuous quality improvement; 5. Reduction of ineffective health spending and waste in healthcare.
