Ranking 2015 of selected MOHFW owned Government Hospitals of Bangladesh

Background of Hospital Ranking

This ranking of the MOHFW owned government hospitals of Bangladesh has been done under a program of the Office of the Additional Director General (Planning & Development) of the DGHS, under an initiative of hospital service improvement. The initiative is being supported by WHO Country Office in Bangladesh under the biennium 2014-2015 under the Health System Strengthening program, which follows the principles of 6 health systems building blocks of WHO, viz.,

(i) health services;

(ii) supplies of medicines, equipment and technologies;

(iii) health workforce;

(iv) health financing;

(v) health information system; and

(vi) leadership and governance.

The initiative of hospital service improvement has been built on this hypothesis:

Visible improvement of the quantity and quality of services of the government hospitals is possible, within the existing resources and limited authority, simply by improving the local leadership and team building, but through a systematic, planned and participatory approach.

The incentive to the participating hospitals was the Health Minister National Award to be accorded to the best performing hospitals and health managers.

Certain areas, which commonly do not require external interventions, have been chosen for making visible change. These areas include cleanliness, staff punctuality, placement of appropriate display boards and patient guidance signs, good behavior with patients, improving laboratory services, waste management, reducing weighting time at the outpatient department, improvement of overall hospital service, updating data in the online reporting systems, holding monthly staff meeting and follow-up of the decisions made in the past meetings, etc. The Health Minister National Award was first introduced in 2014 under WHO biennium 2013-2014.

In the current year, in addition to giving Health Minister National Award 2015 to the best performing hospitals and health managers, attempt has also been undertaken to rank the short-listed hospitals. This report is on this ranking of the government hospitals.

Procedure of hospital ranking for 2015

Each participating hospital required to update the baseline and monthly data on the intervention areas in the MIS-DGHS’s online database system;

The data helped to make comparison between the baseline and level of subsequent improvement in each intervention area;

Almost all the hospitals participated in the hospital service improvement initiative; but out of them 106 upazila hospitals, 25 district hospitals and 14 tertiary hospitals were short-listed through an overall evaluation of the submissions in the online reporting systems;

These short-listed hospitals latter were visited physically to see actual situation; a committee headed by Ms. Roxana Quader, Additional Secretary (PH&WHO) of the MOHFW conducted the evaluation processes;

Eight teams comprised of 41 members from representatives of DGHS’ different departments, such as, MIS; Medical Education; ESD; and Hospital & Clinics; organizations outside of DGHS, such as, HEU-MOHFW; ICDDRB; officers from respective Divisional Health Offices; and some medical graduates from private sector conducted the physical verification visits;

Weighted detailed check-list to capture data on wider perspectives was used for data collection through eye witnesses during physical verifications. Separate patient satisfaction survey on outdoor and indoor patients was also done;

The physical verifications were “joint and consensus assessments” between the external evaluators and local authorities and supervisors; the evaluation sheets have been countersigned by the local and supervising authorities on both the completed checklists and survey questionnaires;

The full mark for evaluation was 300. This was divided into three components, viz., (i) overall impression from cumulative online monthly data: 100; (ii) physical verification: 100; and (iii) patient satisfaction survey: 100. For calculating final score, more weightage was given to physical verification. The final score for each hospital, therefore, was obtained by summing up 20% of online score, 60% of physical verification score and 20% of patient satisfaction survey score;

Based on the final score, the ranking of all the physically verified hospitals in each category has been made; however, as the final scores between hospitals were close to each other, the Ranking for year 2015 has been made as follows:

  • Tertiary hospitals: First top 5; Second top 5; Third top 5, etc.
  • District hospitals: First top 10; Second top 10; Third top 10, etc.
  • Upazila hospitals: First top 10; Second top 10; Third top 10, etc.

This ranking has been planned to publish in the DGHS website.
