Case Study: Building Technology for Quality Improvement with Belize’s Ministry of Health
In partnership with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and various Central American Ministries of Health, TecSalud is designing and building a digital system to support government hospitals’ continuous quality improvement (CQI) initiatives.
The main objective of the CQI platform is to enable hospital and community health center quality teams to periodically audit prenatal, obstetric, postnatal, newborn, and child healthcare through a series of auto-calculating indicators. A randomization process prompts team members to pull patient files and score provided services and recorded data. These scores are measured against national standards of care.
The CQI platform is currently in use in four national hospitals and several regional community health care facilities across Belize. New country programs are being added in 2019.
