National legislation related to healthcare public reporting

France

  • Since 2009, each establishment has the legal obligation to publish on its premises its annual results on the following indicators: hospital infection control indicators (BilanLIN); indicators for quality improvement and safety of care (IPAQSS); e-Satis indicators of satisfaction of patients hospitalized more than 48h in MCO (medicine obstetric surgery).

Germany

  • Public reporting in Germany is partly regulated by law. Since 2005, hospitals have been required by law to publish standardized quality reports every two years. In addition to structural information (type of departments, licensed beds, and so on), hospitals were required only to publish some volume information for the ten most frequent diagnoses, procedures, and DRGs per department. Since 2007, the publication of twenty-seven quality parameters out of the BQS modules has become mandatory. Most of these, however, are related to process information, not to outcomes.
