This is how the clinic list was created
- Many patients! At the clinics presented above, doctors have great experience with prostate cancer (ICD C61), because only hospitals that treat prostate cancer on an above-average basis have been taken into consideration. Hospitals are obliged to inform about their medical treatment in quality reports and to provide this information to the Federal Joint Committee.
- High Level of Patient Safety! All the clinics attach above-average value to patient safety. At least 45 out of 55 measures are taken in order to guarantee optimal hygiene before, during and after surgery.
- Certifications! When a clinic receives a certificate, this means that there are doctors who specialized in the treatment of prostate cancer and that the necessary equipment for treatment is available. All the clinics in the list have been certified as Prostate Cancer Centers by the German Cancer Society.
- High Level of Patient Satisfaction! The level of patient satisfaction of the clinics in the list is at least 85 per cent. This is the result of a survey by the German health insurance companies AOK, the BARMER Ersatzkasse and the Kaufmännische Krankenkasse (KKH) in cooperation with the “Weisse Liste”. Every year, almost half a million of insured people are being questioned about their hospital stay.
This is just a small selection of German clinics. Of course, many other hospitals also offer a high quality of treatment.
