Australian National Diabetes Information Audit & Benchmarking (ANDIAB) 2011 Final Report

Foreword

A general overview of the document by Professor Zoungas, Chairperson of the National Association fo Diabetes Centres

Page last updated: December 2011

ANDIAB, the Australian National Diabetes Information Audit and Benchmarking exercise, provides an overview of the clinical status of people with diabetes attending specialist diabetes services. Participating Diabetes Centres and Endocrinologists can evaluate their data against their peers, enabling them to identify and implement mechanisms to improve outcomes amongst their patients.

This document reports on ANDIAB 2011, the eighth diabetes data collection conducted by the National Association of Diabetes Centres [NADC]. This year 42 data collection sites participated, with de-identified data on over 4600 individuals attending participating specialist diabetes services during the months of May or June 2011, providing clinical process and outcomes information. This year, again, several sites provided data from established databases. Hopefully the information contained in this report of pooled data from all sites is useful and will be widely disseminated.

The outcome of ANDIAB has resulted in the collection of substantial clinical data on diabetes across the country, thus providing a framework by which strategies for caring for people with diabetes could be developed both within our Centres and nationally.

Into the future it is hoped that Specialist Paediatric Hospitals and services will more consistently contribute data, and that more Adult Centres will be able to participate with electronic data from established databases.

We acknowledge the very generous support of the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing who provided the funding necessary to undertake ANDIAB 2011.

The NADC is proud of the work ANDIAB is doing and would like to thank all the dedicated multidisciplinary teams who have contributed to this report.
