Proposed Project

CDC Web site Usability Evaluation—New—National Center for Health Marketing (NCHM), Coordinating Center for Health Information and Services (CoCHIS), 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 usability tests of the CDC Web site,, on an ongoing basis. By collecting Web site usability information, CDC will be better able to serve, and respond to, the ever-changing demands of Web site users. These users include individuals (such as 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 (1) ensure CDC's Web site meets its customer needs and (2) ensure 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. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 41,041. Start Printed Page 65116
