The Danish Adult Diabetes Registry (DVDD) is a clinical quality database and part of the Danish Diabetes Database. The Danish Diabetes Database contains three separate databases, the DVDD registry on the quality of treatment and follow-up for adult diabetic patients in the hospital sector but also in general practice.

All patients (also those newly diagnosed, newly referred, re-referred, no-shows) are reported to DVDD. A status date is set up for each patient - the date for an annual status report in the database on when the patient has most recently had various relevant examinations.

The aim of DVDD is to provide constantly monitoring so as to improve the quality of prevention, treatment and care of all adult diabetic patients in Denmark in the hospital sector and in general practice.
