Description of the steps for developing care pathway quality indicators
As part of the health system transformation strategy (adopted on July 2019), the French National Authority for Health (Haute Autorité de santé - HAS) and the National Health Insurance Fund (Caisse nationale de l'Assurance maladie - Cnam) are co-piloting the “appropriatness and quality of healthcare” project. One of the objectives of this project is to build care pathways with quality indicators. It aims to engage patients and professionals in a participatory approach to improve care pathways quality. The steps of elaboration of care pathway quality indicators (definition, development, validation, updating) are described in a methodology sheet published in 2021. For each step, the actors involved and the expected deliverables are specified.
