Improvement Tools

This section provides a brief introduction to the key quality improvement principles and approaches that HCI is applying in countries around the world. Topics covered:

  • Improvement Collaboratives
  • The improvement collaborative is an improvement method that brings together a large number of teams to work together in a system of shared learning, to rapidly achieve significant improvements in processes, quality, and efficiency of a specific area of health care, with intention of spreading these changes to other sites.

  • Improvement Methods
  • Methods for improving health care encompass a wide range of activities that seek to make health services safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable. They can be applied by individual health workers or teams as part of everyday work or organized across many facilities and providers or even health care organizations. Read more about improvement methods and approaches that have proven effective in diverse country settings. More >
  • Research and Evaluation
  • HCI’s research and evaluation program seeks to support a learning system by which project staff, country counterparts, and the broader international community can study and draw lessons from country experiences to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of health care improvement efforts. Of particular interest to HCI are issues related to implementing and sustaining improvements in health care, such as documentation, spread, institutionalization, knowledge management, and cost-effectiveness.
