The National Database of Hip Fractures is an interdisciplinary national clinical quality database covering cases of illness in patients operated for hip fracture in Danish hospitals. The aim of the database is to contribute to ongoing monitoring and improvement of the quality of treatment of hip fracture patients in the 65 year-old cohort.

Data comes from reporting departments by way of data registered with the National Patient Register (LPR) and cross-batched with the CPR Register. A range of prognostic factors are registered via LPR, including housing status, BMI, basic mobility on admission, fracture type/position, operation type/side/delay and comorbidity (Charlson index).
