The Pre-hospital Database is a clinical quality database which contains data relating to prehospital treatment when a citizen calls 1-1-2 for help with severe acute illness or injury.
The aim of the database is to monitor and develop the quality of pre-hospital treatment. This is to ensure regional uniformity in the processes and operations that take place when someone calls 112 for assistance in the event of serious illness or injury. This is achieved by ongoing monitoring of the most important parameters for pre-hospital activities such as a brief interval before professional intervention, a high medical standard in professional intervention and transport time for relevant well-qualified reception.
Data is gathered primarily from the emergency service allocation systems, supplemented in time with relevant variables from pre-hospital patient records.
- Nationwide clinical quality database
- Clinical quality
- The population comprises all emergency 112 calls passed from emergency call centres to the regional emergency centres (acute medical coordination (AMK) emergency centres). For each 112 call (incident) all the tasks associated with each 112 call are included with one line per task in the dataset

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.
