History of JADE

Back in 1995, the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and Prince of Wales Hospital (PWH) pioneered a quality improvement program and used a nurse-coordinated risk stratification program to triage patients into different collaborative care models.
The establishment of this Registry has led to the development and validation of risk equations and care protocols confirmed to reduce morbidities and premature mortality. In 2007, these concepts were integrated into a web-based disease management program (the Joint Asia Diabetes Evaluation JADE Program) led by Asia Diabetes Foundation (ADF) with built in protocols, risk engines, decision support and feedback reports to enable doctors to establish their own Registry for quality improvement and benchmarking.
In this new era of improvement science, the CUHK-PWH care protocol and JADE Program have provided a reference in line with the International Diabetes Federation recommendation on diabetes care delivery.
