Full-Time Interim Evaluation Consultancy for Component 1 of the Enhancing Health Care Service Delivery Project
|In the execution and delivery of health services, timely access to quality, efficient and effective care are critical components, especially in the aim of achieving universal health care.
The implementation of the Enhancing Health Care Service Delivery (EHCSD) project aims to improve the throughput of critical services provided at public health facilities, thus reducing waiting times for services such as admissions, as well as reducing hospital length of stay. The Project focuses on three key areas negatively impacting the health sector’s ability to respond timely to the health care needs of the public patients. The areas of focus are: (i) diagnostic radiology services (ii) elective surgeries and (iii) removal of social cases from hospitals.
In recognition of its resource constraints and inability to meet the growing demand for diagnostic services, the Ministry of Health and Wellness (MOHW) commenced the outsourcing of the following imaging services in September 2019: CT scan, MRI, Ultrasound, Angiography, Endoscopy and Histopathology. Patients are being referred to an approved list of private imaging service providers and all costs for outsourced services are being borne by the Government of Jamaica (GOJ). Since September 2019, more than 18,000 tests have been completed nationally and the MOHW has paid out approximately One Billion Jamaican Dollars for the service. There is an existing framework agreement with sixteen approved service providers under the project and they are contracted to provide services to 23 hospitals nationwide.
