Performance Improvement Recognition: Private Providers of Reproductive Health Services in Peru
This report identifies which types of recognition mechanisms private providers prefer and provides recommendations for Peru and other countries on implementing a quality improvement (QI) program with a recognition component.
In addition to determining provider level of interest in such a program, the study set out to determine:
- How private providers value different types of recognition,
- What recognition mechanisms should be used for different types of private providers, and
- What institutional platform is most appropriate. Researchers surveyed three groups of networked and non-networked general practitioners, obstetricians and gynecologists (ob/gyns), and midwives in three locations.
The research found a nearly universal interest in a QI program with a recognition component, and that providers value continuing education in quality, both as a means of self-improvement and way to improve patient care.
