Assessment of the Uses and Users of Healthier US and Healthy People 2010. Section 1 – HealthierUS Users

09/01/2005

In your responses to the initial questionnaire, you mentioned that your health organization uses the HealthierUS program. We’d like to discuss, in a bit more detail, some of the ways you receive information about the program and some possibilities for HHS to improve its communication with health organizations like yours.

  • What do find to be the most useful way to access information about HealthierUS?
    • Have you ever tried to obtain information or assistance from your HHS Regional Health Administrator? Or has your RHA ever tried to contact you regarding health promotion or disease prevention activities? If yes,
      • How frequently do you obtain information from your RHA?
      • Is the information helpful?
      • Is the information you receive from the RHA tailored to the specific health challenges in your region of the country?
    • How frequently do you obtain information from non-governmental sources, like professional conferences or informal communications with colleagues?
    • Are there any other ways you access information on HealthierUS that we haven’t discussed?
  • Now, thinking about the ways that HHS disseminates information about HealthierUS, how would you prefer to receive up-to-date information about the program and its related activities?
    • Do you find electronic communication effective?
    • What about HHS placing articles in public health or other professional newspapers and journals?
    • Are there any other ways HHS could disseminate information about the program that you would find useful?
  • Do you have any suggestions for ways that HHS can improve its communications with HealthierUS users?
    • Are there specific kinds of information that you’d like to receive that aren’t available to you at this time?
    • Would you be interested in a report or area of the website devoted to highlighting the ways other health organizations are using the initiative?
