Support to hospital management reform, Ghana

Health Partners International supported a hospital appraisal, planning and management strengthening process for all hospitals run by public and non-governmental organisations in Upper West Region, Ghana.

We supported the design and implementation of an annual peer appraisal methodology and provided technical support in the review, analysis, planning and reform of hospital management systems. HPI provided capacity-building support to Ghanaian staff, enabling them to take over the appraisal and management strengthening process and helped establish organisational structures to sustain the process.

Computerised accounting and financial management systems and patient-focused quality assurance systems were introduced in all hospitals.
