The Swiss National Association for Quality Development in Hospitals and Clinics (ANQ) is responsible for the development, planning and implementation of outcome quality measures in rehabilitation clinics throughout Switzerland as part of the National Measurement Plan Rehabilitation.
In order to further improve the National Measurement Plan Rehabilitation, the ANQ, in collaboration with the Institute of Medical Sociology and Rehabilitation Science of the Charité, is piloting the use of PROMIS GH-10 Patient-Reported Outcome Measure (PROM) questionnaire to measure health-related quality of life.

Pilot project to strengthen the patient perspective in rehabilitation (ANQ-Pilot)
The pilot project aims to explore the use of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) to assess health-related quality of life, with the aim of promoting patient-centred care and increasing the focus on health-related quality of life. This pilot initiative will measure changes in self-reported health-related quality of life across all rehabilitation settings using a short, generic instrument. This will serve the dual purpose of integrating quality of life into the National Measurement Plan Rehabilitation and improving comparability across rehabilitation settings. The patient-reported questionnaire will be tested for its suitability in all nine rehabilitation domains.
In total, 30 Swiss rehabilitation clinics from three language regions in care participating in the project. The pilot project will use the digital measurement platform "OpenPROMS" on tablets for data collection.
The Institute of Medical Sociology and Rehabilitation Science of the Charité will provide content and methodological support for the pilot project and will be responsible for monitoring data collection, data analysis and reporting.
