CHAPTER 2 RESEARCH INFORMATION

The project progress of “Training for Research on the Role of Township Hospitals in the Healthcare System (RoTHiS)”
 
The township hospital is the basis of Chinese healthcare system, which is also the grass root to practice the basic public health and medical service in rural population. The rapid development of urbanization and the growth of aging population have made the supply of medical service to rural population a challenge for township hospitals. Township hospitals, especially those in underdeveloped western areas, are encountering the serious shortage of financial and human resources. And these difficulties have hindered township hospitals from playing a role perfectly in the implement of new health care reform policies, such as two-way referral, the reinforce of the preventive health care, the whole coverage of basic public health service, the decline of medical expenses and so on. As a consequence, the training and research on the role of township hospitals in the complex and changeable rural environment is an urgent task.

With the support of China Medical Board (CMB Grant 16-252), WCRC•RHD in Sichuan University has begun a three-year project (2017-2019), “Training for Research on the Role of Township Hospitals in the Healthcare System (RoTHiS)”.

In order to support and encourage the township hospitals to play a better role and further improve the health care service, the project aims to start from health system research, combine various methods to figure out the situation and problems of township hospitals in western China, thus to offer scientific evidence for solutions. At the meanwhile, the project would train young research staffs and students who major in preventive medicine, and prompt them to understand their professional role and improve their research abilities.

The project has three related working packages (WP).

The WP1 focuses on the field work to engage township hospitals for case interview, data collection, action research, student practice and long-term cooperation.

The WP2 covers research and training. Several sub-projects in the areas of health system domain will be proposed and undertaken by young researchers who will receive training for health system study. This package aims to study the current situation and conduct case study of township hospitals, and pay attention to clarify the relationship of input and output of health care policy and system, then combine the experts’ training and research work by using various methods.

The WP3 is an overarching component: experts’ supervision research methods and training research staff, as well as conducting program evaluation and cooperation on producing outcomes.

Up to date, RoTHiS has made following progress:

1. Selection of the sample township hospitals. According to the terrain, geomorphology, social economic, demographic, culture and traffic conditions, we have selected 9 township hospitals in 3 counties, which are Xihe township hospital, Baihe township hospital and Huangtu township hospital in Longquanyi district of Chengdu plain; Gufo township hospital, Zhaohua township hospital and Huzhu township hospital in Fushun Town of hill areas; Xinshiba township hospital, Sijue township hospital and Qianjin township hospital in Yi mountain area respectively.

 
The geographical distribution of sample points is showed as follows. There are 341 medical workers in the sample township hospitals, who manage 156 village doctors. In total, 580,000 villagers have taken the medical service by the end of 2016.

2. The baseline survey of doctors in villages and township hospitals has been conducted. From May to June 2017, leading by Professor YANG, the project team of RoTHiS conducted survey in 9 sampling township hospitals and village hospitals, in order to understand the human resources in the grass-root healthcare system and work situation of rural doctors. We used medical staff questionnaires of the 5thnational healthcare service survey, adopted electronic edition on Wenjuanixing, and collected data through internet connection on mobile phone. The survey received 365 valid questionnaires, accounting for 70% of all the working staffs in 9 sampling points. Village doctors make up to 36% of them. The remaining 30% not included in the survey were support staffs, or those who were on vacation and out of town for further study. Now the project team is conducting data analysis and writing papers.

3. A project on spatial access to maternal and child health care is led by Dr PAN Jie of the Centre. The research analyzes the accessibility and difference of service resources in the entire area of Sichuan’s township hospitals and community health service centres based on the nearest-neighbor method and Gini coefficient analysis. At present, the English paper of this research has been submitted to publish.

4. A study on the clarification of policies in rural health care is led by Professor LIU Yi (Department of health policy and management, West China School of Public Health) and associate professor REN Xiaohui (Department of health and social behaviour) cooperated with RoTHiS project team. They have summarized the change and associated effects of township hospital’s related policies from 1950 to now so far. The summary includes six parts: (1) the ownership of township hospital; (2) The policy of compensation; (3) The policy of service and function; (4) The policy of human resources; (5) The policy of drug management; (6) The development of health information. Related research staffs are preparing for academic papers of the results.

5. A study on the quality of public health service in township hospitals (from the demanding perspective) is to be conducted by Professor ZHANG Juying (Department of epidemiology and medical statistics, West China School of Public Health) and her group. Professor ZHANG Juying’s team intends to undertake door-to-door interview to understand the quality of health care service in sampling township hospitals. The tool to be adapted is a professional questionnaire focused on primary healthcare service, which has been developed by the group based on the original professional questionnaire created in John Hopkins School of Public Health. The research is on the stage of modifying and piloting the tool.

6. A study on medical care quality of township and village doctors (from the supplying perspective)aims to understand village doctors’ ability on providing basic medical/health care service. The method is the questionnaire on the diagnosis and treatment of basic diseases, connected with the standardized patient cases, to collect the professional knowledge and ability of township or village doctors. Professor ZHOU Huan (Department of health and social behaviour, West China School of Public Health) is leading this study which is on the stage of data collection currently.

7. A study on workload of village and township hospital doctors will be conducted by associate professor ZHU Mengrong and lecturer Yue Lin (both in Department of health policy and management, West China School of Public Health). At the moment, the study is at the stage of project design and literature review.

8. A study on the clinical medical service coverage and ability of township hospitals is led by Dr ZOU Kun, who is the candidate of post-doctor in West China School of Public Health. As a secondary analysis, the study is based on hospital medical recorded in the first page of inpatients’ cases.

9. Associate professor ZHOU Xiaoyuan (Department of health policy and management, West China School of Public Health) is responsible for data analysis of financial reportsof township hospitals. The aim of the study is to understand the balance between clinical service and public health service in township hospitals, and to show benefits on township hospitals from both type of services.

10. A sub-project on how to improve rural doctors’ service efficiency and capability via eHealth technology is proposed by Professor LI Guiyuan (Department of Epidemiology and Health Statistics, West China School of Public Health) and Professor YANG Min. The study will cooperate with Technology Department, Health and Family Plaining Information Centre of Sichuan Province and Sichuan Mobile Telecom Company, and aims to evaluate the result and generalizability of the present APP which assists rural doctors providing in healthcare service.

11. The professional training and action study of students. As an essential content of WP1, the study aims to encourage preventive medicine students to go to the sample township hospitals, to study with connecting on the main problems and demand on current work, and understand how the preventive medicine serves are provided to rural population, also strengthen the ability to solve practical problems by applying textbook knowledge. The activity is led by Professor Yang Min, Professor ZHANG Juying and Associate Professor QIU Peiyuan.
