The basis for successful therapy

The SCQM Foundation (Swiss Clinical Quality Management in Rheumatic Diseases), working in close cooperation with the Swiss Rheumatology Association (SGR), runs a national registry of inflammatory rheumatic diseases. Thanks to the integrated feedback system, this registry can be used as a quality management tool for treatment and as the basis for discussion with patients.

The following diseases can be documented in the SCQM Registry:

  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • axial spondyloarthritis
  • psoriatic arthritis
  • undifferentiated arthritis
  • Giant cell arteritis (RZA)
  • Polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR)

The anonymised data is available for long-term observation studies. For this, an application to conduct a study must be submitted to the SCQM office. Please click here for further information on the procedure for research applications.
