Economic Evaluation of Health Promotion Programs

Given the economic constraints facing our health care system today, it is more essential than ever for Health Educators to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of program implementation. While this is not the only means by which health education programs are measured, economic evaluation is a vital aspect of the holistic assessment process.

For this assignment, Review Cost-Benefit and Cost-Effectiveness as a Part of the Evaluation of Health Promotion Programs, and address the questions below.

   1.  Why is it important to identify the economic benefit of program implementation and delivery? Identify at least (3) benefits of this approach.

   2.  How are CBAs and CEAs calculated? What is the process of conducting them, and
3. what are the steps involved?

   4. Be sure to outline and describe all nine steps.

    5. Provide (3) of examples of companies or organizations that have used CBAs and CEAs to justify health promotion and health promotion and disease prevention measures.
6.  What were the results of the analyses?

7. Why were they successful?

   8.  As a Health Educator, how would you use cost-benefit analysis and cost-effectiveness analysis to justify your own programs?

9. How will such approaches help us sustain our programs during these difficult economic times?

Your completed assignment should be 3-5 pages in length, and should follow appropriate APA guidelines. You should have a minimum of (3) references for this assignment.

In the past few years, there have been several studies on psychopathic personalities. Psychopathology has always been considered a psychological theory of crime. With these new studies (where they have tested the firing neurons in the brain), there is now a controversy over whether a psychopath would fall under the category of a psychological or biological theory.

For example, one study showed incarcerated psychopaths a series of slides that showed not only photos of happy families and pleasant landscapes but also photos of gruesome crime scenes. It was noted that in what was deemed the normal population, the neurons fired in several sections of the brain when the pleasant photos were shown and in a different section when the gruesome photos were shown. In the psychopathic population, all neurons fired in the same area of the brain.

Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

  • Do you think psychopaths are more likely to exhibit violent criminal behavior? Why or why not?
    • What factors could increase the likelihood that a psychopathic individual will engage in criminal behavior? Explain.
    • What factors do you think could reduce the likelihood that a psychopathic individual will engage in criminal behavior? Explain.
  • Do you believe that the person who is deemed a psychopath would fall under a psychological theory or a biological theory? Why or why not? Explain your rationale.
  • Should this make a difference in the incarceration of this person? Why or why not? Explain.

Price Elasticity

You are the administrator for a medical practice. Assume all of your practice’s patients are covered by insurance. Insurance pays, on average, 80% of your fee for a physician visit for which your practice charge is $100. The patient is responsible for the $100 fee but receives 80% back from the insurer. Currently, your practice’s volume for this service is 1,500 per year. Answer the following question in regard to this assumption:

  • Estimate what would happen to the volume of services and the expected revenue to the practice, should the area’s health insurers increase patient cost sharing from 20% to 30% of this charge. Use the concept of price elasticity to make the projection.

For your calculations, use the following as the price elasticities for physician visits:

  • –0.35, for patients in good or excellent health, and
  •  â€“0.16, for patients in fair or poor health (taken from Wedig’s, 1988).

After a quick survey, you decide that 65% of the practice’s patients are in at least good health and account for 1,000 of the 1,500 visits. The remaining patients are in fair or poor health. In light of this survey, write out all the steps of the calculation.
Write answers separately for patients in each category of health status—excellent, good, fair, and poor—for all patients. Please cite any references used.
