The Swiss database on quality projects in medical institutions


Schilling, Julian; Kapetanios, Epaminondas; Mayrhofer, Matthias; Faisst, Karin; Norrie, Moira; Haudenschild, Christoph (2000). The Swiss database on quality projects in medical institutions. Health Policy, 51(2):101-107.

Abstract

Since the early 1990s it is important for every medical institution to report on activities in the field of quality improvement and quality assessment because there is a certain pressure from the market and from health insurance laws in various countries. Nevertheless, researchers as well as clinicians or administrators are rarely informed on ongoing projects. To register projects in quality research, an Internet-based information system was established to register projects on quality of medical institutions. Among others, hospitals, private doctors' offices, medical specialty societies and cost-payers are regarded as institutions in this effort. An interactive database provides information on the institution performing a project and on what is being/has been performed in a certain place during a certain period of time. At present medical institutions are invited to report on their projects, but this initiative can only succeed if it provides information from as many different institutions as possible: for data skills and help your colleagues! Place your knowledge, activities and information at disposal to the public and profit from your colleagues.
