National Quality Assurance Standards (NQAS)

National Quality Assurance Standards have been developed keeping in the specific requirements for public health facilities as well global best practices. NQAS are currently available for District Hospitals( MULTISPECIALITY AND TERTIARY CARE), CHCs, PHCs and Urban PHCs. Standards are primarily meant for providers to assess their own quality for improvement through pre defined standards and to bring up their facilities for certification.

 

THERE ARE TWO MAIN TYPES OF ASSESSMENTS IN THE SYSTEM

NATIONAL QUALITY ASSESSMENT SYSTEM(NQAS): Is a system which has incorporated best practices from the contemporary systems, and contextualised them for meeting the needs of Public Health System in the country

KAYAKALP ASSESSMENT: To complement the government’s ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ (cleanliness in public spaces campaign), the Ministry of Health & Family welfare, Government of India launched a National Initiative to present awards to public health facilities that demonstrate high levels of cleanliness, hygiene and infection control.

 

STANDARDS : These are broad thematic areas with respect to cleanliness & hygiene, and can be termed as the “pillars” of the system.

AREA OF CONCERN : Each theme (Standard), has a fixed number of criteria that cover specific attributes.

MEASURABLE ELEMENT: Is the lowest and most tangible unit of an assessment. MEs are specific requirements that the facilitators are expected to look for in a facility for ascertaining the extent of compliance and award a score.

CHECKPOINTS : In the NQAS type assessment, MEs are broken down further into Checkpoints. Checkpoints are departmental checklists.
