Clinic Guide


Structural features of the German hospital market

What structural features are offered / available?

Functions of the Clinic Guide

The Clinic Guide is based on the quality reports of German hospitals. This data includes the specialties offered, the number of beds available, specific equipment, staffing and specialist expertise and much more. These structural features are available from 2006 onwards. In addition to the structural features, the quality reports also contain performance data such as the indications treated (ICD-10) in the main diagnosis and the procedures performed (OPS). If desired, this performance data can be analyzed specifically and independently of the structural features in the market analysis

On the basis of the extensive structural characteristics in the quality report, a preliminary assessment can be carried out to fulfill the minimum criteria for the future service groups. Individual adjustments to the current situation can be made in the service group editor.

The structural features can be filtered according to freely selectable zip codes, your own created areas and preset regions such as federal states, districts, KV regions or cities. A radius search around a hospital or a freely selectable geocoordinate can also be carried out.

Trend progressions show changes in the number of cases or personnel of each hospital down to the specialist department in a matter of seconds!
