More and more diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are being carried out in the outpatient sector. This clear trend in the German health care system as a whole means that the standards outpatient care is required to meet are ever increasing.

The large numbers of patients and the increasingly complex outpatient care system show an increase in the efficiency of this sector. The number of outpatients treated in our Department has risen in the past 10 years to a record high of 4784. The reasons are an increase in the number of patients from outside Germany (light green and light blue) and the significant increase in adult patients with congenital heart disease (dark blue).
