Evaluating how the second round of Project HealthDesign has influenced the research, care delivery and policy-making communities

The Foundation's program, Project HealthDesign: Rethinking the Power and Potential of Personal Health Records, was designed to expand a vision of personal health records and encourage the market to develop products that meet the diverse needs of patients. This grant supports an evaluation of Project HealthDesign to assess the program's influence among leaders in industry and the care-delivery and policy communities. The evaluation team will collect information through: (1) a social-network analysis of program stakeholders; (2) a survey of selected stakeholders; and (3) 10 to 12 interviews of opinion leaders. The evaluator will collaborate with the national program office and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation staff over the course of the three-year project to ensure that the program's goals align with the evaluation approach. Three annual reports and briefings will provide feedback to the Project HealthDesign team about ways that its findings can better reach its target audience.
