Data from the FaMe-Net database are available since 2005. Since then, all data within FaMe-Net have been uniformly classified according to ICPC-2.
Data on the website and in the textbook chapters are presented from 2014 onwards. Since then, the network and the registering practices have remained quite stable which is important for the epidemiologic description of morbidity. The fusion in 2013 resulted in a significant expansion of the total study population. With more relatively young patients joining, the age distribution of the entire population changed, resulting in a smaller proportion of the 75+ group. Occasionally, individual registering practices may join or leave the network.
Currently, data have been updated up to and including 2021, derived from six family practices (35 GPs). In these practices, more than 41.000 patients were registered at the end of 2021.
The latest update of the website has been performed in June 2023.
FaMe-Net has shown to provide high-quality data derived from an unselected population.
