Science Quality Data (SQuaD)

Since 2015, all patient data within the Anaesthesia Department been systematically digitised. This concerns, for example, data related to monitoring, ventilation, anaesthesia records, orders or the medication prescription.

The Intensive Care Department uses a Patient Data Management System (PDMS).

The Pain Centre records all data in electronic form. Due to this digital transformation, data can be harnessed to demonstrably improve the quality of care. After all, that is the main purpose of our service.

To ensure and improve this quality-assured and value-driven care, a specialised team has been formed. The SQuaD Unit (Science Quality Data) focuses on data analysis, quality monitoring and clinical studies. We, as a department, consider this quite important because we want to offer the patients the most innovative care by keeping up with the latest research developments.

The SQuaD Unit is responsible for:

  • data analysis, quality monitoring (e.g. patient satisfaction, vital signs monitoring in the recovery ward and pain scores).
  • accessibility of clinical databases
  • conducting in-house academic studies as well as industry-sponsored ones
  • project operation
