Evaluating MedlinePlus Connect - A comprehensive planning document
Under this contract, the Institute for Family Health will produce a comprehensive plan that evaluates the use and impact of MyChart, MyHealth and MedlinePlus Connect on patient health outcomes. While the specific health outcomes to be evaluated and the corresponding evaluation methods are to be determined by the Contractors, the National Library of Medicine asks the Contractor to consider an evaluation framework that blends specific clinical and psychosocial outcomes as well as patient use of IFH?s clinical services within the evaluation framework. The emphasis within the evaluation framework (or proposed plan) should be less focused on the descriptive use of MedlinePlusConnect and My Chart by IFH patients than on a more comprehensive quantitative analysis of some clinical and psychosocial outcomes as well as on changes over time in the use of IFH?s clinical services that are associated with patients? use of MedlinePlus Connect and My Chart.
