28/12/2022 – WED 16:30 – Room 5318
Quality measurements are an essential component for improving outcomes for chronic conditions, which weigh a heavy toll on individuals and societies, particularly in China. However, little is known about their implementation within the Chinese health-system and how they are perceived by patients, physicians, and policy-makers. We examined stakeholders’ perceptions of quality and performance measurements for primary diabetes care in Shanghai, China, and analyzed facilitators and barriers to implementation. In this Seminar Talk, findings from a qualitative study conducted from 2018 to 2019 will be presented, along with the local and global implications for exchanging healthcare indicators across borders, particularly among neighboring Asian countries.
