Researchers examined how HP2010 initiatives including HealthierUS were being used among states, localities, and tribal communities. The assessment explored use, users and why and how user groups described the contribution of the two initiatives to their work in health promotion.
The project helped establish the efficacy of these nationwide initiatives through an understanding of where and how groups with the ability and resources to bring the programs to life were carrying out the program objectives. Data collected from this project was used to establish a Performance Assessment Reporting Tool measure for the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. This was an annual output measure for the percentage of states that use the national objectives in their health planning processes.
