Quality management is necessary for establishing useful clinical database in cooperation with healthcare professionals and facilities. The ways of management are 1) progress management of data entry, 2) liaison with database participants (healthcare professionals), and 3) modification of data collection form. In addition, healthcare facilities are supposed to consider ethical issues and information security for joining clinical databases. Database participants should check ethical review boards and consultation service for patients.
