ANQ operates in a challenging environment. We have produced a short video clip intended to offer a brief overview of who we are and what we do. Its main purpose is to provide information to patients and media professionals.
We promote quality in hospitals and clinics
ANQ coordinates and implements quality reviews in facilities providing inpatient acute care, rehabilitation and psychiatric care. The results of these reviews make transparent and nationwide comparability possible. Based on these findings, hospitals and clinics can develop specific measures to improve their quality. Members of ANQ include the Swiss Hospital Association (H+), the Swiss insurance associations (santésuisse, curafutura* and the federal social insurance organisations that provide accident, military and disability insurance in Switzerland), all 26 cantons and the Principality of Liechtenstein. The Federal Office of Public Health (BAG) has observer status. This is a non-profit association.
*Definitive membership to be confirmed at the ANQ general meeting in May 2018.
