The EURHOBOP Project

Page updated on April 27th, 2016

EURHOBOP was intended to provide the European Community with valid standardized and adjusted benchmarking tools that permit European hospitals to monitor their outcomes in key procedures used in coronary artery disease.

EURHOBOP made it possible to benchmark hospital performance, which is considered a key instrument to guarantee and improve the quality of health care delivered to European citizens.
