A first step to the evaluation of healthcare quality 


Article Introduction  Results







This website was created in order to let people know about the work that was developed by the elements of class 10 of "Introdução à Medicina" at Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade do Porto.
Here is possible to find information about the importance of quality indicators and their influence in management policies at healthcare services. Besides that, it is easy to access the results that were obtained for each analized indicator when concerning the activity of a central hospital from 1999 till 2008. 

In the left you can find the full article wrote by our class (with its various parts) if you want to access more specific and complete information; downloads, where the presentations made thoughout the year and others files (like gantt chart or drafts) are available; and the map of the site, to help you with the site organization.
We hope you like our work and the site.
