ANQ publishes the two-year revision rates for primary hip and knee implants for the first time for individual hospitals and clinics.
At the German Pension Insurance Digital Rehab Colloquium, Charité and ANQ are awarded second place in the Jury Prize. The award is given for their poster on the ADL score study based on FIM®/EBI.
At the end of March, ANQ publishes the 2019 review results of the seven rehab departments. For the first time, the results of two rehab departments – neurological rehabilitation and pulmonary rehabilitation – are presented in the form of infographics.
The online General Assembly of Members approves the change in the number of delegates from service providers on the ANQ board and the corresponding amendment to the ANQ statutes. Two new members of the board are welcomed during the general re-election proceedings. The Special Newsletter covers the meeting and provides links to the ANQ committee member portraits published in the Annual Report.
During its retreat, the board discusses the potential future course of ANQ. On the basis of the expectations of the member organisations and the new requirements stipulated in Art. 58a of the Swiss Federal Act on Health Insurance (KVG), the board, together with the delegation of quality contract partners (H+, santésuisse and curafutura as well as MTK, IV and MV), formulates the role of ANQ as the coordinator of quality development implementation.
During the consultation process, the ANQ administrative office expresses its opinion on the quality strategy and the four-year goals of the Swiss Federal Council.
The published results of ANQ for the data year 2020 show that stays in Swiss psychiatric clinics significantly reduce the burden of symptoms experienced by patients. For the first time, the quality review findings cover stays of between one and seven days.
The method for reviewing postoperative wound infections is streamlined. A new digital tool for follow-up surveys is made available to hospitals and clinics. This means only one follow-up consultation after 90 days is required after interventions involving the use of implants.
The General Assembly of Members adopts the budget for 2022 and confirms membership fees. ANQ informs its members about the proposed new coordination tasks that ANQ will be undertaking in the area of quality development.
Hospitals and clinics are once again facing major challenges during the pandemic. The prevalence review of falls and pressure ulcers is discontinued.
To ease the burden on hospitals and clinics during the coronavirus pandemic, the review of postoperative wound infections is once again suspended.
Just ten months after their first publication, the second transparent two-year revision rates for primary hip and knee are published. This was only possible thanks to the dedicated cooperation of all those involved.
