QMI was set up in 2008. In 2012, there were already 220 participants from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. QMI is based on the following fundamental principles:
- Quality measurement based on routine data
- Results transparency through their publication
- Quality improvements through peer review procedures
QMI initiates a peer review procedure in the event of conspicuous results. This is divided into the following steps:
- Cases are selected for the review if they have led to a conspicuous quality result. Initially, there is a self-review which is performed on-site by the responsible doctor with his/her team by means of a retrospective treatment information analysis.
- Local peers will then examine the same treatment cases critically, but constructively. This case analysis follows a clearly defined approach with uniform analysis criteria.
- The results of the reviews are identified quality problems as well as actual proposed solutions to prevent them. Proposed solutions initially refer to interdisciplinary interfaces, standards, guidelines, documentation and procedures. The results are then discussed together with the hospital management.
In 2012, the Hirslanden Klinik Aarau, Lucerne und Zurich joined the QMI quality healthcare initiative. All of the Hirslanden hospitals have been members of QMI (with the exception of Hirslanden Klinik Meggen) since March 2013.
