Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial infectious disease and one of the biggest health problemspublic policy in the world. TB is curable, and most cases of death can be prevented withearly diagnosis and adequate treatment. In 2018, in the region of the 13th DepartmentRegional Health Department of the State of São Paulo, the total number of confirmed TB cases in theNotifiable Diseases Information System, was 537.

In this way, they are stillresearch is needed that considers operational aspects of the treatment and control of itsdissemination. Considering this scenario, the need to develop softwarethat provides real-time information about the patient's path through the systemshealth information for rapid and adequate clinical decision-making is essential.A system that includes information on TB cases in a single database,it will provide a regional epidemiological scenario, assisting in the action plan against the disease.This is the proposal of the research "Digital health for the End TB strategy: from linked dataintegration to a better evidence-based decision making "in which this project is inserted. From thisSo the objective is to evaluate the implementation of a single and interoperable system forTB monitoring in the municipalities belonging to DRS XIII. (AU)
