Diabetes Mellitus is one of the most widespread chronic diseases. Quality Management (QM) improves the quality of care for diabetic patients, but requires user-friendly, low-cost and powerful software. The web application approach offers numerous advantages compared to standard standalone or client-server software for QM purposes. In this paper an application service for QM in the treatment of diabetic patients, which is in use in Austria and Germany, is described.
