With the Healthy China 2030 plan implemented and the medical reform deepened in China, healthcare providers across the country are working hard to be more patient-oriented by providing quality services. For a better communication, we are honored to sponsor the First International Medical Quality and Safety Summit & the QCC Competition 2018 from April 26th to 28th 2018 at Bo'Ao.

Under the leadership of Chinese Communist Party and with the support of Chinese government, medical authorities, institutions and healthcare providers have cooperated closely with each other and ensured a continued improvement in healthcare quality and patient safety.

Earlier this year, the Medical Affairs Authority of the National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC) held a working conference and pointed out that "medical quality and safety should be given more prominence". Furthermore, in its Action Plan to Further Improve Medical Services (2018-2020) developed in January, the top medical authority stated that localities need "to pursue high-quality medical services and to ensure safety by employing new ideas and technologies". Likewise, the State Council issued Opinions on Strengthening the Construction of Quality Certification System and Promoting Total Quality Management, aiming to strengthen quality management at all levels by building quality accreditation systems.

In this context, our event is relevant to share research results and medical practices between caregivers from all over the world, and help provide efficient and innovative service modes to improve medical quality and safety .

Over the five years since its staging in 2013, the QCC Competition has become the most famous medical quality competition in China. It collects wisdoms and encourages front-line medical staffs to be more proactive about quality management with technical tools. So far, more than 600,000 medical staffs nationwide have participated in the QCC events. More than 50,000projects about medical quality improvement have been proposed, and at least 200 of which have obtained national patents. Moreover 2,000 scientific articles and 8 monographs have been submitted to the event commission. Until now our event has attracted nearly 20,000 competitors to participate, and their outstanding items have been selected and shared further in other international events, such as the 2017 ISQua Annual Meeting in London. We are happy to see our efforts paid and bring more benefits to our patients and hospitals. Liu Tingfang, Professor from the Institute for Hospital Management of Tsinghua University, has developed two national standards for the QCC competition, and they are going to be adopted by the 2018 International QCC Competition.

It is the first time for China to held such high level international medical summit and QCC competition at Bo'Ao, a comprehensive functional area specially designed for conference and exhibition services. We will invite government officials of NHFPC and Hainan Province, the president of ISQua and its registered experts, ten top international experts, academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering, and presidents of top Chinese hospitals, and front-line medical staffs to share and communicate.

We are expecting you here to share your best ideas and best practices to better serve our patients and communities.
