6.4 What should be reported?

A reporting system should be user-friendly to allow simple, remote and secure capture of rabies surveillance data by users. The usability of the established resource, however, may depend on the complexity of the data entry and the design of the respective form or system.

Whilst reporting of more complex data may allow for more sophisticated analysis by the end user, such an approach may run the risk of reduced compliance by the local surveillance staff (see section 3.4).

In other words, efficient reporting needs to keep the balance between the end-user and the key personnel the system relies on. For minimum baseline data and information required for effective rabies surveillance see section 4.7.
