The Danish Shoulder Arthroplasty Register (DSR) is a national clinical quality database comprising all patients who have had shoulder arthroplasty at an orthopaedic department in Denmark which undertakes this kind of operation. The aim of DSR is to develop the quality of operations on shoulder arthroplasty in Denmark.
Recording of data started in 2004. The first year was regarded as the pilot for the register during which departments could voluntarily submit data. From 1 January 2005, all departments undertaking shoulder arthroplasty were encouraged to submit reports to the register and in June 2006 the Danish Health Authority issued an Order requiring public and private hospitals to report data to approved clinical quality databases, including DSR.
Data from reporting departments is entered via KMS (Clinical Measurement System) and cross-batched with the National Patient Register (LPR).

The Regional Clinical Quality Databases
Data about clinical quality are collected with the purpose of monitoring and raising the quality of patient treatment in the Danish health-care system. These data can, as well as all other public registers, be made accessible for research projects based on systematic protocols and approved according to the relevant legislations.
Applying for access to data from a regional clinical database requires a list of demands to be obtained. A project description should be attached containing a description of the project explaining the rationale, purpose, methods, budget, publication plan etc.
Furthermore, The Danish Data Protection Agency must approve the project.
- Apply via research access (Danish: forskeradgang), an online application system
- Submit the protocol to The Danish Clinical Registries (RKKP)
- RKKP registers the application
- The application is forwarded to the relevant clinical database
- Potential dialog about adjustment to the protocol
- Approval and extradition of data (expected 6 months after application)
The Regional clinical quality databases subject to rules for treatment of personal data, that should secure high quality of patient treatment in Denmark. These legislations include The Act on Processing of Personal Data (Danish: Persondataloven) and The Danish Act of Health (Danish: Sundhedloven). These legislations ensure that data access is limited to relevant purposes.
