    Description

    The MZG is a registration with which all non-psychiatric hospitals in Belgium must make their (anonymised) administrative, medical and nursing data available to the Federal Public Service (FPS) Public Health. The aim of the MZG is to support the government's health policy by 

    • Determining the needs for hospital facilities;
    • Describing the qualitative and quantitative accreditation standards of hospitals and their services;
    • Organising the financing of hospitals;
    • Determining policy for the practice of medicine;
    • To outline epidemiological policy.

    The MZG aims also to support the health policy of hospitals by providing national and individual feedback so that a hospital can compare itself with other hospitals and adapt its internal policy.

    All reports can be found here (in French/Dutch).
