Continuous quality improvement (CQI) processes for improving clinical care and health outcomes have been implemented by primary healthcare services, with resultant healthcare impacts. But only 10% to 20% of gain in health outcomes is contributed by healthcare services; a much larger share is determined by social and cultural factors. This perspective paper argues that healthcare and health outcomes can be enhanced through applying CQI as a systems approach to comprehensive primary healthcare.
