Health Information Networks, Clearinghouses, Online Information Systems, Web Sites, Online Product Catalog and Publishing

In order to disseminate advances in research to health care providers and the general public on behalf of the National Institutes of Health (NHLBI; NCI; NIAID), AIR developed the Web site, provided clearinghouse services, produced an online catalog for ordering publications, and liaisoned with professional groups and the health care industry. Project work resulted in an enormous growth in the number of inquiries handled, an increase in Web site activity and the number of downloads of products, and strengthened the program’s cost-recovery power.
