International Working Group on Quality Indicators, 2004


The International Working Group on Quality Indicators, initially convened by the Fund in March 1999, aims to improve the measures available for cross-national comparisons of health care quality. In early 2004, the group will release a report to health ministers recommending a minimum set of quality indicators for collecting health system data in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Two additional meetings will be held in April and September 2004 to address operational issues related to data collection and implementation in the five countries, and to expand the core set of indicators to include responsiveness and equity. Participation in the meetings by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has resulted in a Fund collaboration with the OECD to expand the number of industrialized countries in which quality data are collected to 19, as well as to widen the scope of the indicator set. The work conducted in this phase is expected to be completed by the end of 2004, when the project will be transferred to the OECD.
