The Need:

 

The latest figures show that public hospitals still account for over 40% of all in-patient care in the nation. These 40% include almost all hospitalization needs of the poor and marginalized sections of society. And in addition these hospitals are the focal points for implementing most National Health Programs. Being public hospitals, the staff here are also called upon to provide a range of preventive and promotive health care services, and even considerable forensic duties- which private sector hospitals do not have to contend with. And they have to manage all these roles with only about 20% of total health expenditure.

 

This revival of the public health facilities under the National Health Mission needs to be sustained and deepened. The challenge before the public hospital is the achievement of quality of care in a setting of limited resources. This requires a high degree of skills and motivation- and of course a much better understanding of what is quality and how to achieve it.

 

It was for this reason that the 12th five-year plan envisaged quality scoring of all health institutions and implementation of Quality Management System to measurably improve quality of care, with suitable incentives and inputs for achieving and sustaining the desired levels of quality.

 

In line with thismandate, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India has also adopted an “Implementation Framework for Quality Assurance in Public Health Facilities.” This framework has been evolved by NHSRC, the apex technical assistance organization of MoHFW, which has evolved this approach through extensive pilots across multiple states and through discussions with all key stakeholders. As across states, public health facilities begin implementing these standards, there is a growing requirement for health care professionals who have the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to lead such an effort. This requires a matching investment in capacity building in public health professionals, and hospital managers and senior nursing supervisors

 

 

Programme Management

The Center for Hospital Management in the School of Health Systems Studies would be organizing the programme with technical collaboration from NHSRC. The contact programmes would be at TISS Mumbai campus the PG diploma would be issued by TISS, which is a central government-funded deemed university. There may be some possibility of changing venue if the circumstances require it
