Outpatient Registries

The Diabetes Collaborative Registry® is the first clinical ambulatory registry aimed at tracking and improving the quality of diabetes and cardiometabolic care across the primary and specialty care continuum. The Diabetes Collaborative Registry is the effort of a broad collection of organizations with the common goal of improving patient care and treatment of Diabetes Mellitus. The combined data from primary care physicians, endocrinologists, cardiologists and other diabetes care providers allows for longitudinal study of diabetes making this a valuable resource that reveals new insights, drives decision-making and enables better treatment and improved outcomes.
