CONTINUOUS QUALITY IMPROVEMENT 2
Introduction
Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) in healthcare refers to an organization’s
structured process where physicians and other personnel proactively plan and implement

be significantly improved by the application of CQI as a systems approach to comprehensive
primary health care (Brennan et al., 2017). CQI can also be integrated vertically to upscale
linkages with communities and governments, and horizontally with other actors in related
sectors. These interlinkages, collaboratively, can play a fundamental role in influencing the
sociocultural determinants of health.

creation of a solid base of evidence-based process measures that generate granular data and
stabilizing the metrics using balance measures.
Healthcare analytics employs three types of measures. They are the outcome measures,
balance measures, and process measures. Process measures refer to the precise steps taken in a
process that result in a particular outcome metric. The outcome metric may be positive or
negative. Process measures provide evidence-based best practice that is representative of a health
system’s efforts towards systemization of its improvement efforts. An example of process
