Abstract

This study analyzes the number of medical appointments and referrals performed in primary health care in Brazil focusing on the Mais Médicos Program (More Doctors Program). It is a cross-sectional study on the work of physicians included, or not, to the Mais Médicos Program in 2014. Based on validation protocols, a unified database was created from two health information system databases - SIAB and ESUS. Absolute indicators were defined: the total of medical appointments per month; medical referrals and community health education activities. In addition, other indicators were considered, such as weekly rates and productivity of appointments, in line with the profile of Brazilian municipalities. The mean of all appointments was 285 per month corresponding to an average of 14.4 appointments/day. In the poorest municipalities, the figures for the Mais Médicos Program physicians were higher than national rates. The educational activities provided by primary care teams that included a Mais Médicos Program professional were higher in Brazilian capital cities. The Mais Médicos Program achieved one of its main goals, which was to increase health access for vulnerable populations and to contribute towards the consolidation of primary health care in Brazil.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 14 November 2018.
All research outputs
#9,757,007
of 17,362,547 outputs
Outputs from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#239
of 827 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#139,617
of 300,520 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#8
of 23 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,362,547 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 827 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.5. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 68% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 300,520 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 23 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 69% of its contemporaries.
