INTRODUCTION: In 2006, a first set of quality standards was published in cooperation with WHO and the International HPH Network. These standards are used as helpful instruments in many national and regional networks. Moreover, orientation towards these standards is a prerequisite for membership in the Austrian HPH Network. Recently, in November 2020, a new, more substantively comprehensive set of quality standards was adopted in the International HPH Network. *** PURPOSE/METHODS: These quality standards are an excellent instrument to further disseminate and develop the understanding of and commitment to health promotion in health care services. In order to fulfill this objective in an effective way, the updated international standards are to be prepared as a web-based self-assessment tool for the Austrian context, which, in addition to an assessment of the current situation, also offers instructions for further development. *** RESULTS: To ensure sustainable maintenance and upkeep of the online tool, it will be implemented on the website of the Austrian HPH network. It shall enable a low-threshold access and a nationwide support for health care services in the sustainable and long-term implementation of health promotion. *** CONCLUSIONS: The implementation of the online tool is made possible by the support of the Austrian Ministry of Health from funds of Health Promotion 21+.
