Research Capabilities
In-depth research and analysis has been a focus of Health2 Resources for more than a dozen years. From commissioned reports to our own published body of work on health care trends, to the many issue briefs, research reports and macro-environmental analyses we produce for our clients, the approach is the same. We closely examine the issues and drivers, and then clearly translate their implications--for business, consumer, government and industry audiences.

Our research team uses both qualitative and quantitative methods to gauge opinions, examine current trends, test messaging and assess outcomes. Because we know that presentation and framing matter, we wrap our unique graphic and design capabilities around our research projects to support the research theme, ideas and results. We will also work with you to disseminate the results.

Research capabilities include the following:

  • Survey design, development and administration;
  • Data analysis and expert report writing;
  • Focus group recruitment, facilitation and evaluation of results;
  • Market scan and trend research;
  • Communication campaign message testing; and
  • Website user-evaluation testing.

 

Examples include Core Value, Community Connections: A Guide to Care Coordination in the Medical Home, sponsored by the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative, and the Better to Best stakeholder meeting and report sponsored by The Commonwealth Fund, Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice and the Milbank Memorial Fund.
