A term of art used in the context of the Single Assessment Process, which refers to an appropriate and opportune time for an individual and their carer(s) to carry out a particular activity or function.
This study is designed to achieve five major objectives: identifying the elements for measuring timeliness, analyzing contributed factors of timeliness measures, developing a model for measuring timeliness, constructing formulas for measuring timeliness as well as prioritizing the overall timeliness of handheld application usage.
Our results also show that these sources made statistically significant improvements in reporting early warnings of outbreak threats more rapidly to the public, which might result in part from a shift toward automated, electronic methods that improve the timeliness of communication (12,13).
In addition to timeliness, the completeness of reporting dates will improve for all conditions reported with ELR, approaching 100% for the laboratory reporting and CHD notification dates, which will be required fields automatically populated by ELR software.
Given the lack of wide-ranging and up-to-date research, the aim of this paper is to evaluate the quality of the data, timeliness and acceptability of the tuberculosis surveillance system in the micro-regions of Brazil.
