Measuring Up Improving Health System Performance in OECD Countries: Measuring health system performance and the impact on political decision‐making: The views of OECD Ministers
Abstract:The Ottawa conference concluded with a Ministerial Roundtable to discuss successes and challenges in measuring health system performance and its impact on political decision‐making. The
Secretary‐General of the OECD, Donald Johnston, invited Ministers to share their thoughts on three questions:
‐ to what extent can performance reporting become a key instrument in health policy and management?
‐ what are the potential benefits and risks of releasing public performance reports?
‐ can countries improve performance by sharing information and, if so, how best to go about it?
The opening remarks of each Minister were followed by a lively period of "questions and answers" with conference participants.
