Based on the principles of the International Quality Indicator Project, the the Hirslanden Group collects data on the main indicators unplanned readmissions, unplanned reoperations, documented falls, and decubitus, and thus makes an important contribution to evaluating quality outcomes in medicine.

This collected data provides key pointers for identifying possible improvement measures and thus ensures a continuous improvement process.

When interpreting the measurements, it is necessary to bear two points in mind: First, differences between hospitals must also be construed within the context of the range of services that respective hospitals provide. Second, a reliable statement about any trends is only possible after comparing several years because the changes measured each year are smaller than the confidence intervals, which indicate the bandwidth within which the true figure is in all likelihood to be found (95 percent). The range of the confidence interval depends on a number of factors. The frequency of the type of incident in question is particularly significant. The lower the frequency, the wider the confidence interval.
