The assessment of quality of care is becoming increasingly important in healthcare, both globally and in the Netherlands. The Dutch Minister of Health declared 2015 to be the year of transparency, thereby aiming to improve quality of care by transparent reporting of outcome data. With the increasing importance of transparency, knowledge on quality measurement will be essential for a cardiologist in daily clinical care. To that end, this paper provides a comprehensive overview of the Dutch healthcare structure, quality indicators and the current and future assessment of quality of cardiac care in the Netherlands.
