Health Minister Karl Lauterbach's introduction of the Clinic Atlas, a platform for patients to compare hospital quality in Germany, has sparked debates. While aiming to provide vital information for patients, including case numbers and complication rates, critics argue that essential data about patient care quality is missing.

The German Hospital Association and Patient Protection Foundation have criticized the portal as redundant and lacking crucial information. As discussions unfold around potential disadvantages for rural hospitals and the need for transparency, the Clinic Atlas emerges as a focal point in ongoing healthcare reform debates.
