Abstract

The increase in the proportion of elderly people and a consequent increase in the demand for care have caused healthcare systems to become overloaded. This paper describes the use of Home Care Quality Indicators (HCQIs), derived from the Minimum Data Set for Home Care, for monitoring quality of care. Research questions were, "Do HCQI scores vary between home care organizations in different countries?" and "Are one or more country-specific sites consistently scoring better on most or all HCQIs"?
