Gaining the citizens’ trust through transparency

Since 2007, impressum health & science communication runs the Hospital Guides Hamburg, Hannover and Bremen. On these three Internet portals, all clinics of the respective city present the quality of their medical treatments, comparing around 100 quality criteria in a way that is readily understood by patients. The quality data are assessed by external independent institutes.

This comparative presentation is a service for the cities’ citizens which offers an important means of support when searching for the right clinic. The high level of transparency increases the citizens’ confidence in the clinical care and consequently strengthens the local health-care providers that compete with clinics in the surrounding region.

Other cities are also planning the introduction of the Hospital Guide. In some cities, the Hospital Guide is also published as a print brochure.

In 2008 at the Health Industry Congress of the Financial Times Deutschland (FTD), the Hospital Guide concept received an award as one of the most innovative projects in the German health-care sector.
