This role will support IHI's work in Qatar, specifically : Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), a government-owned corporation, is the main health care provider for the state of Qatar, delivering at least 80 percent of the country's secondary and tertiary care.
Employing approximately 24,000 staff, HMC consists of a network of eleven hospitals, a national ambulance service, and home health care service on which a major proportion of Qatar's population - citizens, expatriate workers and their dependents, and visitors and tourists - rely for medical care, including emergency care.
HMC is the first health care provider in the region to have its hospitals reaccredited by the Joint Commission International.
IHI is partnering with HMC to support five central activities : strategic guidance and will building, the annual Middle East Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare, leading patient safety and quality improvement initiatives, testing and implementing methods to increase efficiency and value, and dissemination.
The goal of this work is to create a sustainable and reusable infrastructure for health and health care improvement within Hamad Medical Corporation, Hamad Healthcare Quality Institute and a network of safer hospitals across Qatar with markedly increased ability to improve.
