From transparency and flexibility in quality reviews and development to the revised Health Care Insurance Act (KVG): Q-Day 2020 gives 300 professionals the opportunity to transfer knowledge, share experiences and network.
Following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ANQ Board introduces targeted measures to relieve the burden on clinics and hospitals. The review of postoperative wound infections is moved from March to late May and from November onwards. Patient surveys in psychiatry and rehabilitation are postponed until 2021 and the prevalence review for falls and pressure ulcers is cancelled.
The Swiss Federal Council releases two revised versions of the Health Insurance Regulation for formal review. The ANQ administrative office gives its opinion on the development of the planning criteria and the enhancement of quality and efficiency.
The Swiss Federal Statistical Office (BFS) will include the ADL score, which was developed on behalf of ANQ, in the CHOP code from 2021 onwards. The CHOP nomenclature is used to classify medical interventions carried out in Switzerland. Coders can now find the corresponding FIM® and EBI transition tables on the ANQ web portal.
During a retreat, the ANQ Board places a focus on the revised Health Care Insurance Act and the resulting changes to the framework conditions. With this in view, it drafts a potential future range of services that could be carried out by ANQ; this includes continuing to upgrade the organisation’s current activities and positioning ANQ as a centre of competence for quality development.
Thanks to the sufficiently high quality of the available data, ANQ is able to publish the results of the Forensic Psychiatry review in a comparative form for the first time.
