AQS1 is a long-established scientific system for quality assurance in outpatient surgery. The central component is a questionnaire for recording pre-, intra- and postoperative data, which is presented to both the operating physician and the patient.
The survey captures the entire treatment process of an outpatient surgery. The patients’ satisfaction with the various areas of the practice or the surgery center is documented, including complaints and complications that occurred during the postoperative course. Of course, the assessment of the surgical information, the accompanying anesthesia or data such as the waiting time also play an important role.
The AQA1 questionnaire is designed to be interdisciplinary and is used throughout Germany by several thousand physicians from a wide range of specialties – both in private practice and for outpatient surgery in hospitals. The evaluation is carried out externally and independently by Medicaltex GmbH.
The response rate of the patient questionnaires is on average about 50%. If you receive an AQA1 questionnaire after surgery with us, we kindly ask you to fill it out. Your feedback is very important to us!
