Description of registry

Senior Alert is a quality registry for supporting the preventative care process to prevent falls, pressure ulcers, malnutrition and oral health among the elderly.


All persons 65 years of age or older with any form of contact with health and social care: elderly care facility or other special housing, short-term unit, home care, primary care and/or hospitalisation. The registry is designed for elderly persons, but it is possible to register younger persons.

Ages in the registry

Over 18, but with a focus on persons over age 65.

Total volume of registry

About 100,000 risk assessments registered since 1 April 2008. There are also at least the same number of registrations for interventions, follow-up and events. About 300,700 unique individuals are registered in the registry.

Volume over the past operating year

About 22,000 registered risk assessments per month plus related registered interventions, follow-ups and events.

Coverage rate

98 percent of the municipalities are connected to the registry. All county councils are connected, but not all care providers within the county councils. Approximately 13,000 units.

Note: Variable lists are updated on a regular basis and should therefore be seen as preliminary. For the latest version, please contact the registry.
