Benchmarking in Surgery

Benchmarking in Surgery – A New Concept for Surgical Outcome Improvement. “Benchmarking” is comparing one’s business processes and performance metrics to industry best practices from other companies. Dimensions typically measured are quality, time and costs.

Applied to surgery, the aim is here to define best possible outcomes for example in major liver surgery or in liver transplantaion. The introduction of standardized benchmarks for complex procedures may lead to improved patient outcomes or surgical performance, and eventually decrease cost.
