International consultant for hospital guideline development Re Ad


About Ministry of Public Health

During the last several years the MoPH has made significant progress in addressing the issue of primary health care in an effective way, but the hospital sector has not received sufficient attention. Hospitals are an important element of the health system and play a crucial role in reducing mortality and morbidity. Some of the strategies that are being pursued to promote better care and accountability in hospitals throughout the country are, phased wise hospital autonomy, improvements in patient safety, patient center services, improved accuracy of diagnosis and provision of appropriate patient management.
There reaches a point however, where greater attention needs to be placed on the hospital sector. For serious illnesses and injuries, survival is only being possible through medical and surgical interventions in hospitals.

The quality of hospital services seems to be a financial burden over the system, mainly because it requires a lot of resources. However, the system is losing more resources and increases its expenditure due to poor quality.
At the secondary and tertiary levels, the MoPH is taking steps to develop and introduce systemically clinical guidelines, pathways, quality improvement tools and nationally acceptable clinical governance policies for specific health conditions and circumstances
Providing clinicians with evidence-based guidelines and standards will reduce variability in the clinical management of patients. It will also reduce the cost of healthcare delivery by providing cost effective drugs and standardizing the procedures, thus avoiding the unnecessary use of medical technologies, diagnostic investigations, pharmaceutical products and devices. Compliance to these guidelines will also help the MoPH in allocating resources to the areas that is most needed and useful. Therefore, it will save lives and bring more efficiency in utilizing the limited resources for healthcare in the country
