This webinar, part of the DataSpeak web conference series, presents three case studies that explain how to show return on investment (ROI) through different analysis types: (1) an overview of how economic evaluations of health policies and budget impact/ROI analyses are conducted to determine value and cost-effectiveness with examples drawn from asthma management and newborn screening for critical congenital heart disease; (2) a summary of how to conduct a benefit-cost analysis for estimating prevention and intervention programs for children at the state level with examples from Washington state; and (3) an outcome evaluation of how local MCH funding has impacted children with low birth weight and their eventual health outcomes in California.
