Abstract: Demand for performance improvement drives many healthcare organizations to learn as much as possible about continuous quality improvement. This case study examines the implementation of new ideas in Polish Healthcare systems, such as problem solving procedures, data collection, provision of patients satisfaction reports, employee satisfaction surveys, and management of various processes, with the use of clinical algorithms. The author examines monitoring and improvement of healthcare quality, emphasizing problem identification, development of standards, data collection, data analyses and evaluation, implementation of quality improvement in public healthcare with cost saving, and at the same time, improve the quality of patient care. Traditional forums for measuring performance have two aspects: i) Organization and ii) Patient. Organizations must measure three aspects: balance score, value-based cost management and Baldrige criteria, which lead to improvement of organizational performance and, in consequence, delivery of constantly improving value for patients—the anticipated outcome for improved healthcare quality. The method used in this article is intertwined with balance score and value based cost management in public healthcare within Poland.
