Abstract

Authors aim to assess whether there is a relationship between having quality as an item on the board's agenda, perceived external pressure (PEP) and the implementation of quality management in European hospitals.

The authors used a quantitative, mixed method, cross-sectional study in seven European countries in 2011 surveying CEOs and quality managers and data from onsite audits. One hundred and fifty-five randomly selected acute care hospitals in seven European countries (Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Turkey) participated in this study.

Discussing quality performance at executive board meetings more often was associated with a higher quality management system score. The authors found a trend in the associations of discussing quality performance with quality compliance and clinical quality implementation. PEP did not modify these relationships.

Having quality as an item on the executive board's agenda allows them to review and discuss quality performance more often in order to improve their hospital's quality management. Generally, and as this study found, having quality on the executive board's agenda matters.
