Measuring the Structural Capacity of Philippine Hospitals to Provide High-Quality Health Care

This paper measures Philippine hospitals’ management practices and service capability based on their structural inputs. The authors collected a wide range of data on hospital management and service delivery of selected public and private health facilities using a validated online profiling questionnaire. They identified the challenges and limitations that hospitals commonly encounter, particularly in governance and administration and service capacity. The authors recommend systematically collecting healthcare quality indicators and providing incentives and grants to enable the collection, measurement, and submission of data from health facilities.
