Indonesia hospital accreditation process impact evaluation: Midline report
In 2011, USAID Indonesia commissioned the USAID Health Care Improvement Project (HCI) to conduct an evaluation of the impact of current hospital accreditation initiatives in Indonesia. After the baseline assessment, support for the activity was provided through the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project.
The overall objective of the Hospital Accreditation Process Impact Evaluation (HAPIE) longitudinal study is to examine changes in quality and safety performance of nine hospitals undergoing accreditation with: 1) Joint Commission International (JCI); 2) Komisi Akreditasi Rumah Sakit (KARS – the Indonesian accreditation system) before 2016; and 3) KARS after 2016 but no hospital accreditation (NHA) during the study.
The study is being conducted in three phases: baseline (completed August 2013), mid-line (current report) and end line (data collection planned for January 2016). This report examines the midline data in relation to the baseline.
