SGB V § 135a (Abs. 1), 2000

Care providers have an obligation for quality assurance and improvement along standards of evidence based medicine.

Health care providers are obligated toparticipate in external quality assurance measures, especially if improvement of outcome quality is intended.

SGB V § 135a (Abs. 2)

Hospitals and other health institutions should implement and improve internal quality management, that guarantees the quality of care by a system of precise procedures and systematic measures and helps to improve it continuously.

Project 3Quality Management in

Treatment of Depression

Subprojects 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7

(Study Period: 2000-2004)


Aims

  • Improvement of diagnostic and therapeutic quality

  • Development of process and outcome quality indicators

  • Internal quality assurance and external comparison of hospitals (bench marking)

  • Implementation and evaluation of quality manage-ment structures

  • Transfer into regular care ?


Clinics
Clinics

South German QA project:n = 24

all psychiatric clinics in Baden-Württemberg

Competence Network Depression:n = 10

5 clinics in North Rhine Westfalia

5 clinics in Baden-Würrtemberg and Bavaria


Quality indicators / Patient Characteristics

  • Sociodemographiccharacteristics(e.g. age, sex,marital status, level of

  • education, job situtation, living conditions, mother tongue)

  • Diagnostics(ICD-10, indication for inpatient treatment, reason for relapse/ disorder,

  • family history of mental disorder)

  • Severity of disorder(HAMD, CGI, AMDP, BDI, GAF, attempted suicide, risk to others)

  • Chronicity of disorder(duration, number of in- and outpatient treatments)

Service Profiling

Admission

  • Diagnostics (blood tests, ECG, EEG)

  • Pharmacotherapy (substance, dosage indication, duration etc.)

  • Psychotherapy (units of individual or group psychotherapy)

  • Other treatments (e.g. occupational therapy, music therapy)

  • Incidents (compliance, problems in psychotherapy, threats, attempted suicide)

Process

Course of treatment

  • Therapeutic effectiveness

  • Change of psychopatholoy (GAF, AMDP, CGI, HAMD, BDI etc.)

  • Patient satisfaction (ZUF- 8, BBA)

  • Duration of inpatient treatment

  • Changes (job situation, personal situation, living conditions etc.)

Outcome

Discharge



Study design

Admission

Day 1-3

Process

(weekly)

Discharge

Day X

ICD-10 Diagnosis of

depressive disorder

Yes No

Exclusion from the study

Patient:BDI

Therapist in charge: DOCU-A/ HAMD

Change in Diagnosis?

Yes

Therapist in charge: DOCU-P

Patient:BDI, BBA, ZUF-8

Therapist in charge:DOCU-D/ HAMD

Psychopathology - Beck Depression Inventory

Admission Discharge

Freiburg 24,7 (11,6) 12,1 (11,1)

(2001) N = 210

Baden-Württemberg 27,3 (11,2) 11,1 (9,8)

(1999) N= 1587

Baden-Württemberg 25,7 (11,4) 10,7 (9,4)

(2000) N= 1157



Evaluation of treatment by patients

The most important for me was .......

Baden-Württemberg: n=473,

categories >5%; BBA




Summary

structural quality

  • indicators fo inpatient treatment

  • stronger control for indication (inpatient treatment) necessary

    process quality

  • comparison of diagnostic procedures (necessity?)

  • long mean duration of inpatient treatment

  • remarkable differences in medication and psychotherapy

  • relevance of psychotherapy for patients

    outcome quality

  • high effectiveness for inpatient treatment

  • relevant percentage of „unchanged“ patients (chronic depression)

  • high patient satisfaction


Quality Management Projects

in Psychiatry and Psychotherapy

Conclusions:

+ QA in psychiatry is possible

+ Attempt to implement QA area-wide / regional

+ Participation of all psychiatric hospitals in Baden-Württemberg

+ Development of documentation forms

+ Development and implementation of the concept of benchmarking

- no project evaluation

- representativity of data is limited (selection of patients?)

- data only at admission and discharge

- low establishment of QM-measures in clinics

- clinical relevance ?

- transfer in regular care ?

+ planned total-survey in clinics

+ reduced and adapted documentation materials

+ testing the effect of QM-structures

- motivation of staff, documentation load for physicians

- data for clinical decision making ?
