Healthy lifestyle choices and effective prevention influence both individual health outcomes and system-wide health care costs. NORC has played an important national and international role in identifying, evaluating, and promoting sound policies and best practices in disease prevention and health promotion.
Through a three-year grant from the CDC's National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, NORC is developing and disseminating surveillance information, general awareness, and best-practice materials related to hearing loss at all ages in the United States. NORC is engaged in an evaluation of antiracism practices in healthcare settings to improve cardiovascular outcomes. We are also implementing a series of implementation science-based evaluations focused on hypertension management programs. Also, for CDC, NORC developed and is expanding the national Vision and Eye Health Surveillance System (VEHSS) which leverages new and existing data sources to help patients, health professionals, researchers and policymakers understand the scope of vision loss, eye disorders, and eye care services in the United States. NORC’s Social Data Collaboratory (SDC) uses rigorous, innovative and multidisciplinary methods to study the intersection of digital communications and risk and preventive behaviors, including tobacco use prevention and the use of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS). Our methodologies draw on established frameworks from applied statistics and computational linguistics and employ cutting-edge machine learning techniques.
