Act CLIV of 1997 on Health- Hungary

In Hungary, the “Act CLIV of 1997 on Health” makes the operation of a quality assurance system obligatory for every health institution.

The health care Act in its chapter entitled “Professional requirements for health care services” points out that the aim of establishing a set of professional requirements is to ensure the appropriate quality of health services with special respect to efficacy and effectiveness.

Internal quality management

Internal quality management

Act CLIV of 1997 on Health, implemented in January 1st 1999, made the operation of the internal quality systems in health care settings mandatory. The main aims of the quality systems in the health care settings are as follows:

  • (1) The aim of the quality system is to ensure the quality of health care services.

  • (2) To achieve this aim, the quality system includes:

    - specification of quality requirements

    - inspection and evaluation of the fulfilment of requirements

    - certification if necessary

    - continuous quality improvement

    - Only those providers should provide services, which meet the personal and material conditions as required by the relevant legislation.

    - In the course of health service delivery, the relevant legislation and professional rules and standards should be met, more specifically, the guidelines which rest on the evidence-based medicine and represent the state of the art.
