Technical Audit / Administrative data verification for the Capitation Based Performance Payment Scheme – 2018-19

Background:

On March 26, 2015 the Assembly of Republic of Kosovo approved the Financial Agreement between the Kosovo Government and the International Development Association. The Kosovo Health Project (KHP), restructured in May 2018, is worth US$ 15.69 million. Its objective is to contribute to (i) developing the building blocks to introduce Social Health Insurance (SHI); and (ii) strengthening primary health care (PHC) in selected municipalities.

The project consists of three components:

Component 1: Establishing building blocks for the introduction of SHI.

Component 2: Strengthening PHC in selected municipalities.

Component 3: Project management and communications.

Overall objective of the assignment

The overall objective of this assignment is to carry out an independent technical audit to verify the number of patients registered in the Avicenna / web-based HISs with a personal identification number as of December 31, 2018, and as of June 30, 2019.

Scope of work:

For each municipality, 100 registered patients will be selected randomly. If there are less than or around 100 registered patients, then all registered patients will be selected. The firm will consult with the client on the exact details for the systematic random sampling process.
  • Randomly select sampled patients. Since the phone number will not be available for some initially selected patients, the consulting firm will continue to select randomly patients until they reach the right number of selected patients for whom a phone number has been entered.
  • Prepare the interview guide for enumerators.
  • For each selected patient, call and ask the patient to confirm if he/she is effectively a patient of public primary health care facilities in the municipality.
  • Replace patients who do not answer after callbacks with other randomly selected patients.
  • Ensure quality data through standard supervision and quality control measures including a sample of random callbacks and tracking of enumerators, and data entry program including automatic consistency and range checks.
