***Registration is now closed. If you are interested in attending, please contact Dr. Brown direclty at pbrown3@ucmerced.edu***

Being able to quantify the cost and benefits from health care interventions is critically important for making decisions in today’s healthcare environment. In order to help healthcare providers, Public Health Departments, and researchers understand how to measure and incorporate costs and health outcomes into their decision making, we are offering a two-day workshop on September 24th and 25th, 2018:

  • Day 1: Cost Analysis and Budget Impact Analysis in Healthcare
  • Day 2: Return on Investment and Cost Effectiveness Analysis in Healthcare Decision Making
