It includes more than 42 key performance indicators across seven hospital domains. The program has had a huge impact on the way care is delivered to patients and resulted in over 1500 focused improvements that are implemented in hospitals that led to many success stories that have directly impacted patients and their families.

Some of the most notable achievements include being able to treat over 87% of patients within 4 hours of their arrival in the emergency unit compared to 36% prior to the launch of the program in 2016, in addition to helping more than 1,900 employees to gain the required skills to boost decision making and select and lead improvement projects based on the measurement of key performance indicators.

MOH has rolled out this program to include over 150 hospitals and has incorporated over 700 primary healthcare centers with an expansion to more than 10 hospital domains. The goal is to be able to standardize the KPIs being measured and upload these into a dashboard that will help the ministry monitor performance, draw meaningful insights and make decisions that will continually provide better, safer and more efficient care to the patients and citizens in the Kingdom
