Innovating Quality Management in Health
Full Document (pdf 101.8 kb)
The System of Quality Management in Health was created by the Ministry of Health (MOH) in 2001 with the purpose of overcoming these limitations and developing a systems approach in the field of health quality, from planning to monitoring and evaluation. However, this proposed legislation did not include strategies to enable implementation. In 2008 the MOH's General Office of the Health of the People accepted the challenge to reorient quality development in the health system. To do this, they proposed the National Policy of Health Quality (PNCS, as abbreviated in Peru) with sectoral coverage, in the context of a widely participatory process. As an implementation strategy, this policy called for the formation of SGCSs in organizations that provide care.While the process of policy approval continued, the Health Policy Initiative Project, in conjunction with the MOH, designed modifications to the System of Quality Management that was already in place.
