BACKGROUND: The European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) approach has been successfully implemented in healthcare but reports about EFQM awards at university clinics are lacking so far. Can a non-profit organization, such as a university eye department successfully compete with profit companies from industry for the National Prize of the Federal Ministry for Innovation and Business in Austria? MATERIAL AND METHODS: Following successful committed to excellence (C2E) assessments in 2008 and 2010, a 70-page corporate report was compiled strictly according to the EFQM logic (latest version 2013), consisting of basic concepts, criteria matrix and results/approach/deployment/assessment and refinement (RADAR) logic, which formed the basis for an 1‑day assessment in 2018. Special emphasis was laid on the development and presentation of the strategy by means of the X‑matrix (according to Hoshin-Kanri) between the University Eye Department and its shareholders, the Styrian Hospital Association (KAGes) owned by the Federal State of Styria and the Medical University financed by the Austrian State Federal Ministry. RESULTS: The total points score in the recognized for excellence (R4E) assessment 2018 was 500-550 points, which prompted the jury to award a jury prize of the Austrian National Prize (focus: participative leadership). Potential for improvement, which needs to be worked on in the near future was the alignment of core processes with the main performance indicators of the University Eye Department, which arises from its mission consisting of patient care, research, teaching, training and public relations activities. The development of the strategy with the shareholders has developed from a potential to a strength compared to the R4E assessment from 2017. CONCLUSION: Feedback from the assessor team after the site visit is the greatest added value for a university eye department and/or business enterprise. Improvement measures can be effectively derived following the RADAR logic and lead to a higher quality standard/score and improved performance.
