Assessment of Health Policy Parameters and Indices of the Islamic Republic of Iran
Abstract:   (854 Views)
Background and aim: Assessment of general healthcare policies and   appraisal  of  the role and  effectiveness of these policies as well as their strengths and weaknesses are important. The  aim of this study was to present a model to assess the parameters of the general healthcare policy of Iran.
Method: This qualitative study was undertaken in 2018  to identify appropriate parameters by which to assess the  general Healthcare policies.  To this end first a list of appropriate  assessment indicies  were identified  via review of the literature at hand.   Then with consideration of the selection criteria the list was truncated.  Ultimately, the relevant  parameters  were selected.
Results: A total of 345 indices or parameters were first identified and selected;   then  based on the selection criteria   65 parameters were chosen. After gathering  the opinions of specialists  57 parameters for quantitative assessment of Healthcare policies were chosen.  In the end the final selection of  the  quantitative healthcare  policies were presented as a group. 
Conclusion: The  pattern of indices and parameters proposed can function  as an effective and appropriate tool used to  assess advancement or deterioration of the goals listed  in the current healthcare   policy.  Although this  pattern has its weaknesses and shortcomings relative to proposed parameters and methods of assessment, it   however appears to be a good place to start;   because important interventions taken in Healthcare  and  health policy are not ascertained     there  is nothing at hand to show whether  or not these intervention were correct or incorrect.
