Improving the Managerial Performance in Health Care Systems

By de Freitas Bradley Christopher and Mirela Ivascu


AbstractThe unsatisfactory performance of health care workers is a very prevalent issue, especially in countries which lack resources. In such cases the distribution of health interventions by health workers is crucial. The aim of this paper is to indicate these concerns as well as to provide evidence about the factors of performance and the strategies utilized for improving this issue. The practices of health care workers are viewed as intricate activities with influential prospects. Studies have shown that the simple delivery of written strategies or procedures is unsuccessful more often than not, managerial supervision along with adequate feedback is generally regarded as being the more effective method. Complex interventions can also be considered to be more effective than simple ones, the implementation of urgent cost effective trials is necessary in establishing a more efficient guiding policy. Our intention is to propose an international plan based on collaboration in order to generate information about the exact determinant factors of performance and the subsequent efficacy of the policies used to enhance health-worker management. Additionally, the active support of international organizations as well as the ministry of health can aid greatly in converting research findings into accomplishments in order to increase health-worker performance thus improving the health care system all together
