National measurements inpatient psychiatry

Indicators "symptom severity" and "coercive measures"

The Swiss national association for quality development in hospitals and clinics ANQ aims at introducing and coordinating measures for quality improvement at the national level in Switzerland, particularly the uniform implementation of measurements of outcomes quality. The national quality measurements in psychiatric hospitals started on July 1, 2012. The provisions for the measurements apply to inpatient psychiatry and include all patients except those in child and youth psychiatry.

Commissioned by the ANQ, a working group at the Psychiatric University Clinics (UPK) Basel developed the concept for the data collection and analysis for the benchmarking of important outcome parameters (external and self-assessment of symptom charge, measures limiting freedom) and the medical statistics. In addition, we counselled the about 60 participating hospitals in their data management. From 2014 on the study was extended to children and adolescent as well as forensic psychiatry.
