  1. Continuous quality improvement (CQI) refers to an iterative, data-driven process of empowering health care workers to improve health service delivery by identifying problems, implementing solutions and monitoring efforts to improve care, then measuring the effectiveness of these efforts. PATH envisions CQI as an approach that empowers individuals to drive change that improves the processes and systems in which they operate and live. This infographic visualizes PATH's approach to CQI.

  2. A strong health system must be able to monitor quality of care and work to improve it to achieve better health outcomes. It can be further strengthened if the culture is such that health care workers, patients, and community members are empowered to take action towards improving their health services. However, the complexity of health care systems makes it difficult to identify whether health facilities are meeting targets, where they fall short, and how they can improve service delivery. Continuous quality improvement (CQI) refers to an iterative, data-driven process of empowering health care workers to improve health service delivery by identifying problems, implementing solutions and monitoring efforts to improve care, then measuring the effectiveness of these efforts. This brief details PATH's approach to CQI.

  3. Clinical decision support algorithms (CDSAs) are digitized tools that combine an individual’s health information with the health worker’s knowledge and clinical protocols to assist in making diagnosis and treatment decisions. They analyze patient data, providing prompts and reminders that help health care workers deliver a range of services within a continuum of care.Despite several initiatives underway around the use of these digital tools in low-resource settings, there remains a lack of awareness of their impact and cost-effectiveness at the national level, as well as a growing need to streamline how health data is collected and used for decision-making. Though more research is needed, initial evidence suggests that CDSAs can reduce barriers to quality of care and, ultimately, health disparities, leading to greater health impact.This fact sheet summarizes key considerations that countries, implementing partners, and donors should keep in mind when planning for CDSA implementation. It also describes the work PATH, as part of its Tools for Integrated Management of Childhood Illness initiative, is leading to adapt CDSAs for country context and incorporate them into health systems to enable better and more targeted patient care.
