Abstract

Despite the increasing relevance of quality assessment for all stakeholders in the German healthcare system only approximately 40% of the S3 guidelines define indicators to measure the quality of care. Recommendations to assess outcome indicators are only provided in 10% of S3 guidelines. The process of the development and recommendation of quality indicators is heterogeneous and frequently not transparently reported. The current practice for the recommendation and validation of quality indicators in German S3 guidelines does not meet the requirements of evidence-based healthcare.
