Health Marketing—New—National Center for Health Marketing (NCHM), Coordinating Center for Health Information and Service (CCHIS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
Today, CDC is globally recognized for conducting research and investigations and for its action oriented approach. CDC applies research and findings to improve people's daily lives and responds to health emergencies—something that distinguishes CDC from its peer agencies.
CDC is committed to achieving true improvements in people's health. To do this, the agency is defining specific health protection goals to prioritize and focus its work and investments and measure progress.
It is imperative that CDC provide high-quality timely information and programs in the most effective ways to help people, families, and communities protect their health and safety. Through continuous consumer feedback, prevention research, and public health information technology, we identify and evaluate health needs and interests, translate science into actions to meet those needs, and engage the public in the excitement of discovery and the progress being made to improve the health of the Nation. In our outreach to partners, we build relationships that model shared learning, mutual trust, and diversity in points of view and sectors of society.
The National Center for Health Marketing (NCHM) of the Coordinating Center for Health Information and Service (CCHIS) was established to help ensure that health information, interventions, and programs at CDC are based on sound science, objectivity, and continuous customer input.
NCHM is requesting a 3-year approval for the generic concept of health marketing to provide feedback on the development, implementation and satisfaction regarding public health services, products, communication campaigns and information. The information will be collected using standard qualitative and quantitative methods such as interviews, focus groups, and panels, as well as questionnaires administered in person, by telephone, by mail, by email, and online. More specific types of studies may include: user experience and user-testing; concept/product/package development testing; brand positioning/identity research; customer satisfaction surveying; ethnography/observational studies; and mystery shopping. The data will be used to provide input to the Start Printed Page 43242development, delivery and communication of public health services and information at CDC and to address emerging programmatic needs.
Every National Center and Office at CDC will have the opportunity to utilize this generic clearance. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated burden hours are 38,700.
|Type of respondents||Number of respondents||Number of responses per respondent||Average burden per response (in hours)|
|CDC Partners, Public Health Professionals, Health Care Professionals, General Public||86,000||1||27/60|
