Définir et évaluer la qualité des soins est une démarche fondamentale si l'on veut améliorer le système de santé. Malgré sa réputation « de meilleur système de santé dans le monde », selon l’OMS, la France est en retard sur l'étude de la qualité des soins. Il n’existe pas à l’heure actuelle de système d’information permanent sur la qualité et la sécurité des soins et les données demeurent partielles, contradictoires et difficilement accessibles. Afin d'obtenir une image globale des problèmes de qualité de soins et développer des stratégies pour l’améliorer, il est important de recueillir des données de manière systématique et sur une base nationale cohérente. Cet article fournit une vue d'ensemble des données disponibles sur la qualité de soins en France en suivant le cadre d’analyse et les recommandations internationales pour mesurer la qualité. En comparant la situation de la France à celles d’autres pays développés, elle vise également à identifier les lacunes et les points forts du système actuel pour améliorer la gestion de la qualité des soins.
