The" Weisse Liste "portal has published quality information on hospitals in revised, more consumer-friendly form. Hospitals suitable for treatment event can be identified at glance on map. A quality filter highlights facilities that meet defined quality criteria.
The result output of the search combines two quality features - the frequency of treatment for the desired treatment and patient satisfaction - in graphic representation on map. This enables the user to see more quickly which clinic in the area has the most experience and is recommended by patients - and whether clinics further away may perform better.
A survey by the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg and the Weisse Liste had previously shown that users can interpret large amounts of information more easily with the aid of visual form of representation. They also want information that is quickly comprehensible and understandable.
In addition, users of the search portal now have the option of filtering hospitals in the results list with one click according to several quality criteria at the same time. EB
