Abstract: Objective This study aims to estimate the prevalence of missing data in the medical consultation registries held by physicians working in Bamako community health Centers (COMHC) and to identify the factors which predict physicians’ intention to collect completely the data in their registries, based on the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB). Method A exploratory cross-sectional study was conducted, including a random sample of 3072 medical consultations and 32 physicians. Data were collected between January and February 2011 through a standardized extraction form and a questionnaire measuring physicians’ sociodemographic and professional characteristics as well as constructs from the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB). Descriptive statistics, correlations and linear regression were performed. Results All the variables contained in the medical consultations registries have missing data. However, only four variables (symptom, diagnosis, treatment and observation) have a high prevalence of missing data. The variable observation has the highest prevalence with 95.6% of missing data. Physician’s intention to collect completely the data is predicted by their subjective norm and the number of years of practice. Conclusion The results of this study should contribute to advance knowledge on the prevalence of missing data and possible strategies to improve the quality of health information collected from the CSCOM. This information can possibly allow to better inform the decisions concerning resource allocation.
