|Obesity Child Development Growth Disorders|
Pediatricians participating in CrescNet provide pseudononymized data on patients' height, weight, and head circumferences to the CrescNet registry. Growth data are evaluated by automatized filter algorithms and by a pediatric endocrinologist. CrescNet does not have access to patients or personal patient data. Each participating pediatrician receives a quarterly screening report with recommendations for the work-up of children with abnormal growth or abnormal development of weight or body mass index.
The data registry is used for scientific purposes.The collection of data from healthy children allows the generation of evidence based statements about prevalence rates of growth disorders and also about the rates in disorders of weight development. For this, data are provided completely anonymized without allowing conclusions on personal patient data.
