Abstract: Government Diabetes clinics in Malta share a Web based computerised system that offers a user friendly Windows based approach to day to day diabetes care. The system can also produce research related data and administrative reports to help local health care providers identify problems and implement programs to improve standards of diabetes care. The database can be used as the basis for a National Diabetes Registry. The system has a dataset shared with the European Union DG-SANCO EUBIROD System. EUBIROD can create comparative reports on data aggregated from various centres across Europe. This paper describes the function of the system and its evolution over a number of years. Some pending issues are discussed.
