The Danish Healthcare Quality Programme, DDKM, is an accreditation system. The programme serves as a method to generate continuous and persistent quality development across the entire healthcare sector in Denmark. The Danish Healthcare Quality Programme provides accreditation standards of good quality – along with methods to measure and control this quality.
DDKM aims to generate and combine data which are already being collected in the Danish healthcare sector. Data include, among others, the national quality databases, adverse events, the National Indicator Project and national patient satisfaction surveys.
DDKM includes all publicly financed Danish healthcare services and operates on a cross sectorial basis. In time, the programme is intended to become a complete, integrated and joint system for quality development and assessment across the entire national healthcare system.
The programme is a result of collaboration between the central government and the Danish regions, hereby covering the public healthcare sector in full.
Besides public hospitals, DDKM also encompasses municipal healthcare services, private hospitals, pharmacies and pre-hospital units.
