Qualitätstransparenz in der stationären Krankenhausversorgung der Schweiz

Item Type Journal paper

Quality transparency is a crucial basis for reducing information asymmetries in the health care system. But what information on inpatient, acute-somatic care is available in Switzerland, how can it be used and what are the consequences? To answer these questions, a review of the data available is undertaken, systematically processed and strengths and weaknesses identified. On this basis, as well as international comparisons, health policy recommendations for an improvement of the current conditions follow. The study shows that quality transparency in Switzerland is limited, despite the national quality contract agreed in 2011. This makes it difficult to strengthen quality competition, to make informed decisions about patients’ choice of hospital and to contract selectively. Further development of the data and measurement instruments available in hospitals in Switzerland is therefore indicated and requires prioritised implementation.
