Upon commission by the NVZ (Netherlands Association of Hospitals), MCW developed the Quality Platform: an accessible tool that gives insight into the quality of healthcare.
The Quality Platform assesses the quality of hospitals based on ten core aspects. In this way, it gives patients and other stakeholders clear insight into issues that affect hospital performance. Patient experiences are also included in this analysis.
In the Netherlands, there is a great deal of public debate about the quality of healthcare. This is understandable, as healthcare is an issue that affects us all. Naturally, if you have to go into hospital, you want to make sure that you get the right care within a safe environment. To make a positive contribution to this issue, Dutch hospitals want to be as open as possible about the quality of care.
