Measuring the economic costs and benefits of a public health program translates its impact into objective monetary terms and helps make the case for investments that support positive health outcomes. Economic evaluations are unique in their ability to assess the cost-effectiveness of a program by weighing costs and benefits. This presentation will discuss the feasibility of doing an economic evaluation and will present the findings from two programs as examples.


What you'll learn

At the end of the recording, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the purpose and benefits of economic evaluations.
  • Explain economic terms such as return-on-investment, break-even analysis, and quality-adjusted life years.
  • Discuss the importance of different perspectives and how to engage stakeholders.

About this Webinar

This webinar will examine the various aspects of resource management in health care, health organizations and nonprofits. Resource management is the evidence-based process by which health care organizations effectively distribute human, capital, supply and data resources in a manner that assures operational and financial stability for the organization and quality care for individuals. 

Traditionally in health and social service organizations, resource management and fiscal and budgeting responsibilities have been the purview of the chief financial officer, accountants, and budget analysts. However, today, front-line managers are being called upon to integrate fiscal planning and resource management into their clinical and operational responsibilities. 

This program is intended for public health leaders who have limited knowledge, skills and experience with resource and financial management and or those wish to review and/or refresh their knowledge of fiscal principles.


What you'll learn

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the major resources in health care requiring a management approach
  • Identify strategies and tools to monitor resource utilization
  • Explain possible performance deviations through a variance analysis process
  • Identify strategies for performance improvement in the resource management process

    Yaminette Diaz-Linhart
  • Yaminette Diaz-Linhart, LCSW, MPH, was the recipient of the 2018 BUSSW Alumni Association’s Outstanding Contributions to the Field of Social Work. Her path has taken her from a MSW/MPH dual degree student to program director for BMC’s Center for Family Navigation in Pediatrics to her current role as a health policy research scholar in the doctoral program at Brandeis University. Yaminette was born in Puerto Rico and grew up in Connecticut. She moved to western Massachusetts to attend Mount Holyoke College.
    Yaminette’s work has focused on improving child and family outcomes through mental health promotion and depression prevention for parents. Yaminette has been a member of NASW-MA since 2010 and holds a Master of Social Work and a Master of Public Health from Boston University School of Social Work and School of Public Health. She is committed to developing policy level strategies that help promote mental health for families through the life course.
    Yaminette believes that in order to move toward health equity and human sustainability, healthcare organizations will need to include people in roles such as community health workers, patient navigators, and social workers to help meet the social and health needs of patients. Her research explores how organizations manage these “nontraditional” boundary spanner roles and how work design and employee management practices may impact patient outcomes. She believes that addressing the current gap in managing these roles is crucial for employee health and wellbeing, and as a result for patients.
    Yaminette’s unique perspective straddles multiple identities, including her professional work as a public health social worker, and positions her well to think about building a Culture of Health through cross-sector collaborations in the management field.

bout this Recording

Today’s challenges, like climate change and COVID-19, are complex and require public health professionals to lead large-scale changes that no one person or organization can solve alone. The Public Health Learning Network has developed the Learning Agenda Toolkit to help workforce specialists and other leaders develop a coordinated system of effective, efficient, and quality learning to address these challenges.
This webinar reviews the origins of the toolkit and explores its key elements, including a conceptual learning framework, rapid assessment tool, discussion guide, and learning approach planning tool, to help build a robust learning agenda and implement systems changes that improve health.


What you'll learn

At the end of the recording, participants will be able to:

  • Review key elements of the Learning Agenda Toolkit.
  • Consider how different learning approaches, implemented over time, can be used to build collective competency to address community challenges.
  • Learn how to be involved in future pilot testing efforts for the toolkit.

About this Webinar

The fast pace and pressures experienced in public health often demand short term and immediate actions without thoughtful consideration of the long-term effects. When people are able to look at situations from a bigger picture, systems view, it allows them to make higher quality decisions and minimizes unintended consequences. One of the most significant contributions to building this capacity is Systems Thinking.

Systems Thinking is a practical, results-oriented approach for better understanding the underlying causes of complex issues. This webinar will introduce systems thinking tools and present two recent examples of public health teams who have engaged with systems thinking tools and received coaching, with very positive results!

  • Example 1: one of of three teams coached from the Vermont Department of Health that focused on reducing the case processing backlog in their Cancer Registry Department
  • Example 2: one of five teams coached from NNPHI's Strategic Scholars Program that focused on the challenges local health departments have in prioritizing and integrating  behavioral health services


What you'll learn

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Define systems thinking
  • Explain the Iceberg Model and Ladder of Inference
  • Give an example of an improvement by a public health team using systems thinking coaching
