System level action required for wide-scale improvement in quality of primary health care: Synthesis of feedback from an interactive process to promote dissemination and use of aggregated quality of care data

Journal article

There is an enduring gap between recommended practice and care that is actually delivered; and there is wide variation between primary health care centres in their delivery of care. The authors pose the question, what are the common barriers, enablers and strategies to improving health outcomes in Indigenous chronic illness care and child health? From the aggregated quality improvement data collected the authors identified important ‘drivers’ and strategies for better health outcomes. These included effective staff recruitment and retention; staff capacity to deliver high quality care; effective use of clinical information systems and tools; use of quality improvement processes and data based decision-making; and a high level of community involvement in primary health care.
