Description:
The HSE National Diabetes Programme was established in 2010 to decrease morbidity and mortality from diabetes in Ireland. One of the key priorities of the programme is to set up a register of all people with diabetes in order to facilitate organised care and screening for complications. This report provides valuable practical advice on how a register can best be established and maintained at the present time. Healthcare systems, and particularly clinical systems, in Ireland are not well integrated or developed. This lack of integration, standardisation and in particular the lack of a unique identifier has militated against the provision of disease registers in the past. However, the extensive work carried out in this study on the practicalities of establishing a diabetes register from existing data sources and estimating its completeness provides clear recommendations on how the Diabetes Programme should proceed. This work will also inform the National Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Information System Project. The National Diabetes Programme endorses the findings of this report and would like to thank the Project Team and all who contributed to this study.
