Criteria for Selecting Proposals

The National Partnership for Women & Families (?National Partnership? or ?NPWF?) and the Office of the National Coordinator of Health IT (ONC) will work collaboratively to develop and incorporate questions into the National Cancer Institute?s Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTs) and once the results of the NCI survey results are available, the National Partnership will review the results, and assist ONC with the reporting and dissemination of the results. The National Partnership?s involvement will enable ONC to collect, analyze and report on information that will help us better understand individuals? access to their electronic health information and the use of their health information including tools that enable them to collect, share and use their health information to monitor and manage health care needs for themselves and their loved ones. This cooperative agreement involves supporting ONC?s efforts to measure and report on individuals? access and use of their electronic health information. Working with ONC, the National Partnership will identify survey items, from its and ONC?s past surveys, and help develop new survey items for inclusion in the HINTS survey. NCI will then conduct the HINTS survey including the added survey items. Once the HINTS survey results are available, the National Partnership will review and help interpret the survey results and assist ONC in the development of written data products, such as data briefs. Finally, the National Partnership will help disseminate the results through its various channels, including via webinars, blog posts and social media.
