Obesity-patient-register (APV)

APV is an electronic data based documentation software for patients with obesity. Similar to an electronic medical record, relevant data pertaining to obesity is documented only once and is available for numerous purposes.

Internal interfaces permit data import (BDT, HL7, chipcard) and data export (FQSD, AKD, HASD, BDT, QS-APV, EXCEL). The APV-initiative and the development of the APV documentation software are financed by the Federal Center for Health Information (BZgA), the Competence Network Obesity and the German Obesity Society (DAG).

As a quality assurance tool, it has been developed since 2000 on behalf of the Association of Obesity in Childhood and Adolescence (AGA) at the University of Ulm.
