Charge: The LouHIE Research Workgroup is charged with designing, supporting and evaluating results of LouHIE’s Community e-Health Research activities. This research will form a foundation for developing the LouHIE business plan.
Importance: The workgroup should conduct its activities reflecting the importance of its work for LouHIE. In a consumer-driven system such as LouHIE is seeking to develop, understanding e-health related attitudes, perceptions, concerns and desired benefits of consumers and the organizational stakeholders who serve them will be a critical foundation for an effective business plan and LouHIE operations going forward. In addition, effective research, appropriately published and disseminated, will help educate the Louisville community, including consumers and stakeholders, about the LouHIE opportunity. Finally, the research, well done, will help third party vendors justify making a decision to bid-on, and invest in, building LouHIE’s utility for the community.
Membership Structure: workgroup members will include 1-2 participants from each of LouHIE’s four quadrants, as well as researchers and support staff from Noblis and the University of Louisville.
