The OECD Health Care Quality Indicators (HCQI) is a project that aims to measure and compare the quality of health service provision in different countries in order to stimulate cross-national learning.
The set of quality indicators at the health systems level allows to assess the impact of particular factors on the quality of health services. The Health Care Quality Indicators are published within the “Health at a Glance” report, which provides the latest comparable data and trends on different aspects of the performance of health systems in OECD countries, along with striking evidence of large variations across countries in indicators of health status and health risks, as well as in the inputs and outputs of health systems.
The existing indicators are: Primary Care, Acute Care, Mental Health Care, Cancer Care, Patient Safety, Responsiveness and Patient Experiences. Data is published and downloadable in different database and dataset formats.
