Compensated Study Participation with the VA

Feb 8, 2017 by Mark E Baker

Compensated Study Participation

Perigean Technologies LLC is supporting Veterans Affairs, Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Office of Human Factors Engineering (HFE) in recruiting Veterans to participate in studies that gather feedback on health care tools, such as mobile apps or websites.

All members of the Ann Arbor, Michigan, Veterans’ community are welcome to participate. All participants must have Veteran status, but not work or volunteer for Veterans Affairs.
In order to participate, the Veterans will need transportation to the VHA HFE offices in Ann Arbor.

Participation involves approximately one hour of time, during which Veterans will review and answer questions about online health care tools. All studies will be conducted between 0800 and 1800 Eastern time. Veterans will be paid between $50.00 and $75.00, depending on the time requirement, and reimbursed for travel expenses, up to $25.00.

Interested Veterans should send an email to VHAHFE@perigeantechnologies.com with the subject line “VHAHFE study”, and include the following in the email:

  • Your First and Last Name
  • Telephone Number
  • Mailing address where you can receive your payment

The next step will be completion of an online form, for which Veteran participants will receive a $5.00 e-gift card. Once included in our database, you will be eligible to participate in one or more studies over the next year.

Thank you in advance for your help.
