    This report is an update to the OECD Health Working Paper No. 22, Health Care Quality Indicators Project: Initial Indicators Report that was based on data collected between 2003 and 2005 and released in 2006. That report presented the OECD’s initial work on developing a set of health care quality indicators that could be used to raise questions about differences in quality of care across countries. The 2006 report covered 21 “initial indicators” with data provided by 24 countries. It identified 17 of these indicators as being fit for international comparisons of which 4 were identified as needing further work. Following the release of that report in March 2006, the OECD undertook a second round of data collection on the initial indicator set and also gathered data for the first time on new indicators in a questionnaire sent to participating HCQI countries. This paper reports on the results of that second round of data collection. Data is presented here on an augmented indicator set considered fit for the purpose of making international comparisons on quality of health care. The data is comprised of 19 indicators (17 initial indicators plus 2 new ones). The paper also presents the data provided on 7 other indicators that are not yet considered fit for international comparison. In this round of data collection, data were reported by 32 countries... Le présent rapport est une version actualisée du Document de travail de l’OCDE sur la santé n 22 intitulé Health Care Quality Indicators Project : Initial Indicators Report, établi sur la base des données rassemblées en 2003/2005 et publié en 2006. Ce rapport présentait les travaux initiaux de l’OCDE concernant l’élaboration d’une série d’indicateurs sur la qualité des soins de santé qui pourraient être utilisés pour tenter d’expliquer les différences en matière de qualité de soins entre les pays. Le rapport 2006 portait sur 21 « indicateurs initiaux » pour lesquels 24 pays avaient communiqué des données ; il a été estimé que 17 de ces indicateurs se prêtaient à des comparaisons internationales et que quatre d’entre eux nécessitaient des travaux approfondis. A la suite de la publication du rapport en mars 2006, l’OCDE a entamé un deuxième cycle de collecte de données relatives à la série initiale d’indicateurs et a entrepris de recueillir pour la première fois des données sur de nouveaux indicateurs par le biais d’un questionnaire adressé aux pays participants au projet HCQI. Le présent rapport fait état des résultats du deuxième cycle de collecte de données. Il contient des données sur la série élargie d’indicateurs considérés comme se prêtant à des comparaisons internationales, soit des données portant sur 19 indicateurs (17 indicateurs existants et 2 nouveaux). Il présente également les données fournies en ce qui concerne 7 autres indicateurs dont on estime qu’ils ne se prêtent pas encore à des comparaisons internationales. Les données communiquées émanent cette fois de 32 pays (des pays de l’UE qui ne sont pas membres de l’OCDE ont été invités à participer au projet)...
