Project AQC

The “AQC Working Group for Quality Assurance in Surgery” is an association of chief physicians and attending physicians with the purpose of compiling joint statistics on cases and procedures and using these for quality assurance and recognizing their own strengths thanks to comparisons with each other. In Adjumed.net, not only can the AQC data set be recorded, but all cases can also be filtered to the various specific data sets of the specialist societies (hand surgery, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, urology, burns surgery, visceral surgery, SMOB, etc.). This allows specific additional questions to be asked without having to enter the basic data redundantly.

The AQC solution is particularly characterized by the overlapping filter questionnaires. These offer unlimited flexibility when entering and reusing the data, e.g. in other medical registers. In addition, the filter questionnaires massively reduce the data collection effort in the participating clinics, as VisHSM, SMOB and AQC cases, for example, can be recorded in a single step. In addition, the comprehensive AQC questionnaire can be easily adapted for other special registries.

As Adjumed’s lead project, the AQC register has been ISO-certified since 2006. One of our specialties was that we also managed the SGC logbook. The trainee specialist surgeons were able to enter their procedures relevant to the specialist title or import and mutate them from AdjumedCollect, view and print out their entry lists and use the summary to see where they stood at any time with regard to the target operations. Today we offer this service in an AQC extract. The entries can then be summarized and entered into the SIWF logbook.
