Message from the Local Organizing Committee Chairman

Dear PCSI Conference participants

The healthcare sector worldwide continues to be one of the most vibrant and dynamic parts in most nations, not least because it impacts every one of us in such a profound manner. What is less visible is the extensive work that goes on behind the scenes in managing the enormous data that is generated in a modern health economy. However, this aspect is just as crucial as the front end where new technologies are developed.

In fact, capturing and managing data into meaningful information is the backbone of healthcare development. It affects every aspect from the transparency of costs and care to understanding and responding effectively to trends in our sector.

The PCSI organization brings together the leading experts worldwide in a specialist segment of this data flow focusing on promoting and refining effective coding systems for patient classification. I am proud to welcome you to Qatar to the 30th Annual Conference of the organization. This is especially important for me as the event is being held in the Middle East for the first time.

As a country in the midst of a transformation of our healthcare sector, your work and knowledge plays an important role in helping shape and guide this process. I look forward to welcoming you to Qatar, to a productive and informative gathering and the opportunity to build this awareness in a new region.

With best wishes

Dr. Faleh Mohamed Hussain Ali

PCSI 2014 Local Organising Committee Chairman

Assistant Secretary General for Policy Affairs, SCH

Organising Agency

Supreme Council of Health

The Supreme Council of Health (SCH) is the highest health care authority in Qatar, guiding national reforms and ensuring internationally renowned care. As the steward of health, the SCH develops strategies, policies and programs to improve the health of its country’s people. It also monitors and evaluates progress towards achieving national goals.

The SCH vests responsibility for health care provision to public, semi public and private providers, while regulating all services. The SCH is undertaking the most ambitious health care reform programs in Qatar’s history. The reforms focus on three pillars: System Expansion, System Adaption, and Overall Quality and Access Improvement. Government expenditure on health almost doubled between 2009 and 2012. Leading up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the SCH is collaboratively developing eleven new hospitals, and diagnosis and research centres. Including health and wellness and community health centres. As part of this expansion, it is undertaking national planning for workforce, facilities and service needs.

In the future model of care, enhanced health promotion and prevention, and strengthened primary care, will co-exist with additional and specialized secondary and tertiary capacity; as an integrated and continuous system of care. To this end, in 2011, building on Qatar National Vision 2030, and the National Development Strategy 2011-2016, the SCH launched the National Health Strategy 2011-2016 (NHS). The NHS outlines seven goals:

  • Comprehensive World-Class Healthcare System
  • Integrated System of Healthcare
  • Preventive Healthcare
  • Skilled National Workforce
  • National Health Policy
  • Affordable Services
  • High Quality Research

The NHS is a work plan of 38 projects, with clear milestones and deliverables, to achieve the country’s vision.

Patient Classification Systems International (PCSI)

After many discussions about the value of a collaborative association, including meetings in Paris in 1984 and Dublin in 1986, Patient Classifications Systems Europe (PCSE) was initially founded in 1987 in Lisbon. The organization created a network of researchers and users of the case mix concept from health administration, government agencies, and academia. From an initial focus on Diagnosis Related Group (DRGs), the association’s goals have expanded to include a broader interest in clustering and grouping techniques of clinical and administrative data for health care management and financing. The association has stimulated the use and refinement of the science of “grouping patients” within different levels of the health system.

Expansion of the organization throughout the world brought a name change from PCSE to Patient Classification Systems International (PCSI). It is the only worldwide organization addressing case mix issues. In the last years the annual international conference has brought together a growing number of active participants from all over the world. From a group of six “idealists” from Western Europe and the United States, the organization has now grown to hundreds of members from 5 continents. The organization puts on one annual conference and offers educational opportunities through our summer and winter School programs.
