Traduction en anglais : Assessment and comparison of hospital units : the French health insurance project for emergency wards.
There are different ways to compare hospital units for different purposes : financing, planning, facilities regulation, and the availability of public information.
Most of these comparisons are based on administrative data and they do not take into account the point of view of the professionals and the theoretic framework provided by the agency relationship model.
We present the French health insurance project for comparing and assessing hospital emergencies.
We used the general framework of the French health insurance comparison project.
A first panel had to select items for comparisons and assessment, considering different types of criteria (resource, process and outcomes) and the meaning of their use.
Data collection had been tested on a regional basis and analyzed. providing a second items selection.
Then this was compared with the literature and checked by the scientific society. determining the final data collection form.
We present the final data collection form for emergency wards and the main trends of its analysis.
This is the first attempt to provide for the French health system an integrated evaluation form for the comparison of emergency wards with respect to professionals'opinion.
Its actual use and evolution will determine the global success of this work.
