The Norwegian Directorate of Health has commissioned the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI) to contribute to the National Quality Indicator System (NKI) in Norway. FHI is responsible for reporting annually updated results for 10 established Quality Indicators for 30-day survival and 30-day readmission of patients admitted to Norwegian hospitals, at the hospital, hospital trust and regional level. In addition to online publication of these results by the Directorate of Health, FHI publishes the results in a report with supplementary results. In addition are separate reports published for each hospital with more detailed results and information that are valuable for quality improvement. FHI will participate in reference group meetings for the NKI, and contribute to the development and testing of new quality indicators. The 30-day survival indicators are provided as part of the underlying data included in the calculation of Quality Based Funding (KBF) for Norwegian healthcare providers.
