The Danish Cardiac Rehabilitation Database (DHRD) is a clinical quality database gathering healthcare data on cardiac rehabilitation from all hospitals in Denmark.

DHRD is aimed at improving the quality of cardiac rehabilitation in Denmark for the benefit of patients with coronary heart disease. The database helps optimise and harmonise cardiac rehabilitation services in Denmark and registers cardiac rehabilitation by way of the services provided in hospital cardiac rehabilitation units.

All patients aged over 18 receiving cardiac rehabilitation are notified to the database. The database has been operating since 2013.
