india Highlighted story

ACCESS Health International (AHI), an India-based organization focused on improving access to high quality and affordable healthcare, and SafeCare, a standards based, digital quality improvement platform with experience in sub-Saharan Africa, have teamed up to improve quality of care in India.

In this international South-South partnership, AHI provides facilities with the IIEA (International Society for Quality in Health Care External Evaluation Association) accredited standards-based methodology by SafeCare that empowers healthcare providers to measure, monitor and improve the quality of their services, with the aim to expand nationwide.

Patients know what quality of care to expect at a certain facility, funders have data to assess the medical, financial, and accountability risks when considering long-term investments and insurance companies can see which providers their customers use to give better value for money.

At a policy level, data on quality and risks assist the government in its choices about how to best allocate its scarce resources. In this respect, Access Health International and SafeCare can truly transform the quality landscape in India to create sustainable improvement and provide health for all.
