Assessment of Health IT and Data Exchange in Safety Net Providers: Final Report Appendix. Introduction and Methods


NORC at the University of Chicago (NORC) is pleased to present this report detailing findings from our site visit to Access Community Health Network (“Access”) for “Assessment of Health IT and Data Exchange in Safety Net Providers.”  NORC conducted this site visit under contract with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  The Health Resources and Services Administration ( HRSA) works in conjunction with ASPE to guide activities under this project. This report is one of several site visit reports for the project. NORC researchers visited four Access sites and met with network leaders at Access’s central administrative office in August of 2008. We conducted a total of six meetings including 12 discussants. Notes taken during these visits along with various background and administrative information made available by Access constitute the primary data sources for this report.
