What factors are taken into consideration?

The IDSS consists of four factors, all with the same weight. Each factor is worth 25% of the score assigned to that operator. Are they:

  • quality health care : assessing the health actions together to meet the beneficiaries; if the operator is concerned with the promotion, prevention and care provided to health, that is, if it comes, prevents and maintains the health of the people attending;
  • guaranteed access : analyzes the accessibility of beneficiaries service and supply providers network;
  • sustainability in the market : study the financial and economic balance of the operator, the degree of satisfaction and commitment to providers;
  • process management and control : notes that the operators are properly registered and following health protocols ANS.
