Comprehensive patient questionnaires are an important element in quality management because they provide indications of patient satisfaction and areas for improvement.
Patient assessment of the quality of a hospital's services is an important and established quality indicator (patient satisfaction). The brief questionnaire for the national patient survey was designed and developed by the National Association for the Development of Quality in Swiss Hospitals and Clinics (ANQ) in collaboration with a group of experts. It comprises an asymmetric five-point scale. The revised version of the brief questionnaire was used for the first time for the year 2016. The brief questionnaire includes six key questions and can easily be included in longer patient surveys. In addition to the six questions about the hospital stay, there are questions relating to age, gender, insurance cover, and a subjective health assessment.

In January 2021, an electronic version of the questionnaire was created, helping to increase the automated processing of feedback and responsiveness by adding or changing questions in order to identify a particular issue and monitor the impact of the improvement measures taken.
