One of the CH-IQI quality indicators is mortality data, which the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) publishes together with other performance indicators in its quality report. Hirslanden collected its mortality rate data using the same method and consolidated these for the Hirslanden Group as a whole and for each hospital individually.

Hirslanden also carries out a risk-adjusted measurement of mortality in the intensive care unit at all hospitals with a corresponding infrastructure. For several years, results have shown that the Hirslanden hospitals achieve significantly better figures compared to the Swiss average when comparing the effective and expected mortality.
