This observation plan outlines the approach to build a diabetes registry to collect data on daily routine of treatment of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

Condition Intervention
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Drug: antidiabetic treatment (ATC A10B)

Study Type: Observational [Patient Registry]
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Target Follow-Up Duration: 10 Years
Official Title: Prospective Diabetes Registry of Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Further study details as provided by IMS HEALTH GmbH & Co. OHG:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • routine treatment data (composite of e.g. diagnostics, kind and dosage of pharmacological diabetes treatment) [ Time Frame: From date of registration every 3 months until end of study (up to 120 months) ]
    The objective of the project is to develop a sustainable Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) registry to collect daily routine treatment data (e.g. diagnostics, kind and dosage of pharmacological diabetes treatment) to provide a better understanding of the disease specific epidemiology, treatment patterns, patient relevant outcomes, patient subgroups, specifically among patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Further DDG ("Deutsche Diabetes Gesellschaft") guideline adherence and economic aspects of diabetes treatment should be evaluated on the basis of this registry data.

Enrollment: 2104
Study Start Date: August 2013
Study Completion Date: March 2016
Primary Completion Date: March 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Patients with antidiabetic treatment for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Drug: antidiabetic treatment (ATC A10B)

Detailed Description:
The choice to establish such a (general and specific) disease patient registry was based on several scientific and practical considerations as described in the AHRQ user's guide: registries for evaluating patient outcomes (, 2007). From a public health point of view, such a register should monitor naturalistic (i.e., unbiased) use of diabetes treatment in the community and should primarily guide and assist medical professionals to make optimal choices in combating diabetes. The primary focus of this registry is therefore to monitor the medical and lifestyle treatment of diabetes in order to enable comparison of different treatment options and to provide data for future discussions of optimal treatment.
