Discussing the Numbers

What is POWER?


POWER is a centralized data repository for the on-going collection and maintenance of demographic and clinical data from hospital-based pediatric weight management programs (WMPs) across the country.


This multi-site data set is used for collaborative research efforts and quality improvement initiatives.


There are currently 28 participating sites in the prospective POWER project. A governance structure for POWER was designed to support a structured, participatory and transparent decision-making process. The goal is to be inclusive of all site representatives, with final decisions made by the POWER Governance Board following input received from POWER Work Group members.
