In China, the hospital system is a huge and complex system of three level structures with 10 grades according to the different functions and roles. In order to improve the diagnosis and treatment performance of the hospital system, we carry out research programs about the procedures, quality and management of diagnosis and treatment.
We then identify the deficiencies in the health care services provided by the hospitals and doctors to the patients, design and implement standard operationg procedures. This reduces the rate of misdiagnosis, improves the efficiency and accuracy of the hospital system, and ensures that the patients receive better services and long-term outcomes.
Guided and supported by relevant state departments, the Institute launched the Clinical Pathways in Acute Coronary Syndromes in China Study (CPACS), a series of studies that focuses on how hospitals in China manage acute coronary syndromes (ACS). The third phase is currently in progress.
The primary aim of CPACS-3 is to identify evidence-based practice gaps relating to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with suspected ACS in China and provide solutions to improve the system and the performance of county-level hospitals dealing with this major disease.
We plan to promote the successful model to areas such as the diagnostic, treatment, and rehabilitation of hip fractures.
