Resumen Within large public sector organizations such as National Health Service of the United Kingdom, the recording and management of absence can be inefficient and result in poor data. Occupational health departments that are willing to help employees who have health problems find that their task is made more difficult by the lack of data which identifies the reasons and dates of absence spells and whether these are work related. This study explored ways for collecting more effective real-time data in order to assist both management and occupational health departments in their efforts to support employees back to work, and to reduce the amount of work related ill health. A pilot system involving a call centre and the use of e-mail was found to be effective for the collection of real-time data.
