KTQ – Kooperation für Transparenz und Qualität im Gesundheitswesen (Cooperation for Transparency and Quality in Health Care)

In October 2014 we received certification by KTQ (Cooperation for Transparency and Quality in Health Care) for the fifth time. The German Heart Institute Berlin achieved a total certification score that again showed an improvement since the last KTQ certification in 2011.
The KTQ quality report creates transparency for the public and is one of the most important certifying instruments in the German health care sector. The quality report gives detailed information on the services provided by the institution and its quality management.
