In 2008, the former database was transferred to an online database. After more than ten years of continuous development, the database is now reaching its technological limits.
The database will now be redesigned from scratch to meet the needs of today's physicians, patients and rheumatologists, as well as to improve usability and performance. Only then can the quantity and quality of the data and the goals of SCQM be ensured – Optimisation of treatment quality and support of scientific research – will be pursued further. The new database is scheduled to go live in 2021.
As a non-profit foundation, SCQM needs financial support to develop and programme the database. We would like to thank the following sponsors for additional partial financing of the new database. Further financing contributions are very welcome.
