Proposed Project

Collection of Customer Survey Data Pertaining to the CDC Web site—New—National Center for Health Marketing (NCHM), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

Executive Order 12862 directs agencies that provide significant services directly to the public to survey customers to determine the kind and quality of services they need and their level of satisfaction with existing services. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Health Marking (NCHM), seeks to obtain approval to conduct customer satisfaction surveys and usability tests of the CDC Web site, on an ongoing basis. By collecting customer satisfaction and Web site usability information, CDC will be enabled to serve, and respond to, the ever-changing demands of website users. These users include individuals (patients, educators, students, etc.), interested communities, partners, healthcare providers, and businesses. Survey information will augment current Web content, delivery, and design research which is used to understand the Web user, and more specifically, the CDC user community. Primary objectives are to ensure: (1) CDC's Web site meets its customer needs and (2) the Web site meets the wants, preferences, and needs of its target audiences. Findings will help to: (1) Understand the user community and how to better serve Internet users; (2) discover areas requiring improvement in either content or delivery; (3) determine how to align Web offerings with identified user need(s); and (4) explore methods for offering, presenting and delivering information most effectively. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. Start Printed Page 73008
