Founded in January 2010, allianz q is an alliance of actors from the healthcare sector whose paramount concern is to ensure that quality is entrenched in the healthcare system and continually improved. Following the annual workshop of allianz q, a brochure is always published in which the topic of the workshop is discussed and enlarged upon..
This allianz q workshop was held on 22 and 23 June for the ninth year running. This time it was about the different ways of looking at quality in the healthcare system. Discussions considered how the flood of health data impact the day-to-day lives of us all and how hospitals, patients, doctors and health insurers cope with this flood of data. A further focus of discussions was the question of how the quality of data can be improved and the treatment and care of patients thus optimized. Critical points such as data storage and data privacy were also addressed.
