The Database for Asthma is a new national quality database that contains information about the treatment of children and adults with asthma regardless of whether they are being treated in hospital and/or general practice.

The database aims to monitor and develop the quality of treatment of asthma in Denmark and in the long term increase the follow-up of the individual with asthma, to ensure less illness and better quality of life.

The database was set up on 1 January 2015. All pulmonary and medical outpatient departments treating patients with asthma are required to submit data to the Database for Asthma in Primary and Secondary Care in Denmark by notifying SKS procedure codes to the National Patient Register (LPR). This also includes paediatric departments treating children and adolescents. Initially, the database is only based on data extracts from LPR and so data is 100% complete.
