Quality management in healthcare contents its efforts mostly with thoroughly measuring process indicators, describing structures, installing strategic boards and publishing impressive reports addressed to the quality community. The effect on patient treatment seems limited. Quality measurements with the Swiss Inpatient Quality Indicators (CH-IQI) and peer reviews conducted by Initiative Qualitätsmedizin (IQM) are a powerful and promising exception of this mainstream.
