Third-party evaluation

On the other hand, there is also a flow of conducting objectives by public institutions due to the opacity of the welfare facilities for the elderly. Welfare service third-party evaluation business1997 ,Ministry of Health and WelfareIt was positioned as one of the mechanisms for embodying the idea in the basic structural reform of social welfare, which was started to be studied at that time. Under the background of increasing and diversifying welfare demands of the people due to changes in the social environment, the basic structural reform of social welfare is to review the common infrastructure system of social welfare systems based on the Social Welfare Business Law for 50 years after the war. It was an attempt.

after that,2003 Is summarized in the following format.

“It is necessary to establish standards related to the content of services such as the service provision process and evaluation. In view of this, the external standards such as facility, equipment and staffing should be kept so that the quality does not deteriorate. , It is necessary to make it elastic.

Evaluation of service content is an important means for service providers to understand their problems concretely and make improvements. It is important that these evaluations are performed objectively, taking into account the opinions of the users, and therefore it is necessary to promote that they are conducted by professional third-party evaluation institutions.[1].

or,2000 Article 6 of the Social Welfare Law, which came into effect in June, stipulates the following as "Measures for improving the quality of welfare services" regarding measures for improving the quality of welfare services.

Article 78
  1. The manager of a social welfare business should provide a high-quality and appropriate welfare service from the standpoint of the person who always receives the welfare service by evaluating the quality of the welfare service provided by itself and taking other measures. I have to try.
  2. The State shall endeavor to take measures to contribute to the fair and appropriate evaluation of the quality of welfare services in order to assist the measures for improving the quality of welfare services carried out by the managers of social welfare services. I won't.

Article 78, Paragraph 2 of the Social Welfare Act stipulates that the state should take measures to contribute to the implementation of fair and appropriate evaluation of the quality of welfare services, and the welfare service third-party evaluation business shall stipulate this provision. Based on this, the country is promoting the creation of a foundation. In the future, it can be said that this is a field in which information disclosure of more facilities is awaited.

As of November 2007, all local governments except Hiroshima Prefecture have implemented a welfare service third-party evaluation system as an optional system. The most enthusiastic Tokyo metropolitan government mandated an audit once every three years.
