Quality Assurance and Improvement

Improving the quality of services is a continuous process that engages all staff across an organization. Recognizing this, JSI works with partners to make quality improvement (QI) an integral and continuous aspect of client care at all levels of a project, starting with the formation of quality management (QM) plans at the country, district and facility levels. JSI’s approach lays the foundation that leads to the implementation of data-driven QI activities and ultimately a full program at the individual service delivery sites. JSI provides continued support through hands-on practical training to build the capacity and skills of program staff, government partners, and service providers.

Routine supportive supervision of program staff is another critical element of managing quality services. Regular supportive supervision is vital to helping staff understand and adhere to standards. Measuring performance on key indicators helps organizations analyze progress, identify achievements and gaps in service delivery, and determine their root causes. Ultimately these processes improve the quality and effectiveness of services provided to communities and clients.
