ANQ reviews in hospitals and clinics
Using the annual contributions made by hospitals and clinics, ANQ funds all services associated with the reviews. This includes review organisation, data evaluation and the reporting and publication of results. Contributions are calculated on the basis of the number of case contributions defined in the Quality Agreement and inpatient admissions as recorded in the Swiss Federal Statistics Office’s hospital statistics for the previous year (2018).
|Contributions per case 2020|
|Acute care||CHF||2.70 (excl. VAT)|
|Psychiatry||CHF||9.88 (excl. VAT)|
|Rehabilitation||CHF||11.30 (excl. VAT)|
The insurance providers and cantons that have signed up to the National Quality Agreement are obligated to incorporate ANQ reviews into their performance mandate and also to finance new reviews in the first two years. As no ANQ reviews were in the start phase in 2020, the hospitals and clinics were not subject to separate tax supplements for inpatient discharges in the year under review.
