CHIME KnowledgeHub is a one-stop shop to access case studies and solutions for addressing today’s complicated health IT landscape. The hallmark of the tool is peer-reviewed content development of CHIME members and CHIME Foundation Partners for CHIME members.

What is a White Paper?

White papers are persuasive essays, written in a somewhat academic style, with no direct quotes from the vendor. A white paper may use a problem/solution structure but rarely a before/after structure. White papers help in visualizing a possible solution to a nagging problem.

What is a Case Study?

Case studies are extended testimonials on how a product or service helped someone in the real world, written in a journalistic style with many quotes from the participants.

Attested Content Guidelines

1. Content

  • Not judged a promotional/sales piece
  • Emphasis placed on conveying the solution process rather than the solution itself (i.e. how something was accomplished as opposed to what was accomplished
  • Names of collaboration CHIME members included (if applicable)

2. Allotment

  • CHIME Foundation Partners can submit up to two case studies or white papers per month
