About: The C3 U.S.-Arab Healthcare Summit is an annual event with the goal of developing bilateral solutions to address global healthcare challenges.
Excerpt: National and regional quality and safety strategies regarding patient treatment, patient safety and costs include actions for building knowledge about quality problems and solutions, and actions for planning and implementing solutions at different levels of the health system in order to deliver effective healthcare services. These strategies must target the needs of the population at large, with emphasis on poor and marginalized (vulnerable) populations, which have poorer access to care. Effective quality and safety improvement is the result of many activities using systematic methods over a period of time. The development of tailored strategic plans and interventions plays an important role in creating conditions to stimulate and guide the various stakeholders to improve quality of performance and resource use.
