DOI: 10.33917/es-8.174.2020.56-65

The coronavirus pandemic, which covered a variety of countries with different health systems in terms of organization and development in 2020, brought to the fore not only the issues of predicting and treating mass infectious diseases, but also the problems of assessing the quality of both medical care and its effectiveness. Accordingly, building a quality management system in the healthcare sector as a whole is of paramount importance as well as the introduction of quality management in medical organizations in the new environment. In addition to solving the acute problems, which public health faced with in the fight against COVID-19, it is necessary to build long-term strategies for its functioning and development in order to avoid such force majeure in the future
