OH Reporting


To support OHS report harmonization we are proposing the establishment and adoption of a so called “One Health Consensus Report Annotation Checklist” (OH-CRAC) in future surveillance reports. The aim of OH-CRAC is to support the systematic collection of OHS metadata across all sectors as well as different institutions on federal, national and international level to a predefined structure; which will ultimately support the consistency and completeness of provisioned metadata.

The structure of the CRAC is based on the Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM). GSBPM was developed in response to needs of official statistical institution that were facing the problem of insufficient data and metadata harmonization. The terminology and the description of the GSBPM-based phases and corresponding sub-processes in the CRAC will however be adapted to fit surveillance purposes and enable better comprehension.
