The Danish Urogynaecological Database (DugaBase) is a national clinical quality database that contains information about doctor- and patient reported quality aims before and after an operation.

The purpose of DugaBase is quality assurance and on-going controls on the quality of examinations and treatment of women in Danish hospital departments being treated for urinary incontinence, genital prolapse and reconstructive surgery after major parturition lesions.

DugaBase became operational on 1 April 2006 and is developed and operated with funding from the Danish Regions (Regional Clinical Quality Development Program– RKKP). Data is submitted using the TOPICA data entry system, supplemented with the National Patient Register (LPR) extracts.
