Instructions
For this discussion, suppose you work for a healthcare
organization and your local government is considering establishing something
called a health effectiveness analysis program (HEAP). The purpose of this
program would be to look for areas of intervention that would promote health
and save money for the state and its people.
You have been asked to write a brief memo for your organization’s leadership.
Using the example of childhood immunizations, identify and briefly discuss
three or more issues or questions that are likely to arise in making economic
evaluations (e.g., cost–benefit or cost-effectiveness analyses) of health
interventions. What impact would this intervention have on demand and consumer
behavior in the long run?

that they did not? Based on the analysis in their memo, would you recommend
initiating an intervention regarding childhood immunizations?

Identify and briefly
discuss three or more issues or questions that are likely to arise in making
economic evaluations (e.g., cost–benefit or cost-effectiveness analyses) of
health interventions. What impact would this intervention have on demand and
consumer behavior in the long run?
Childhood immunizations are important in the prevention
of diseases and death such as measles, whopping cough, and chickenpox. Children
vaccine programs are federally funded at no cost to children. This program
ensures that vaccines are given on schedule for healthier children, families,
and communities (CDC, 2016). Some of the types of vaccines that are given to
children as well as adults are meningococcal, Hep B, IPV, DTaP, Hib vaccine.
MMR, pneumococcal, varicella, rotavirus, Hep A, HPV, and seasonal
influenza.
The health effectiveness analysis program (HEAP) is a way
to analyze the cost and health outcomes of one or more intervention. One issue
that arises when doing a health analysis of children immunizations is the
cost-benefit factors. The initial cost for implementing an immunization program
may be significantly higher depending on target population, dispersion of the
population, type of disease to be controlled and logistics barriers that may
rise (CDC, 2021). The cost effectiveness analysis evaluates the outcomes and
costs of interventions designed to improve health. It is a tool used for
improving the efficiency of health service delivery. The tool can also be used
for national awareness on the burden of diseases, political will to address the
problem, and access to financial resources to support long-term interventions.
The effectiveness of immunizations is very important as well; this comes down
to the general quality of services delivered. A great example is the polio
immunization; if not done to the required standards, those treated will experience
complications in the future.

MEMORANDUM
To: Leadership
From: Antigone Smith
Date: June 23, 2022
Re: Health Effectiveness Analysis
Program (HEAP)
The purpose of this memo is to discuss the proposed HEAP,
a complimentary childhood immunization intervention which will promote health,
and ultimately save our state and consumers money. Additionally, to address
issues and/or questions related to the economic evaluations associated with the
program’s implementation. In terms of cost benefits; specifically, whether the
“benefits justify the costs” (Getzen, 2007), the answer is absolutely. From a
public health perspective and herd-immunity, vaccinations protect not just
individuals, but entire communities. Thus, rendering them one of the most
effective public health interventions. Moreover, they are cost effective,
producing substantial savings over time. “Vaccine-preventable diseases can be
very costly resulting in doctor’s visits, hospitalizations, and premature
deaths. Additionally, national, state and local outbreak responses also take a
lot of time, money and manpower. Through timely vaccinations, the U.S. saves
billions of dollars” (Vaccinate Your Family, 2021). As it relates to concerns
about offering vaccinations at no cost, and whether this would be
cost-effective, “for every $1 spent on childhood vaccinations, our country
saves $10.90” (Vaccinate Your Family, 2021).
If
the past is prologue, this intervention would positively impact public health
in the long run. For instance, the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program which
was created by the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 demonstrates how
effective such a program might be, “because of vaccination, approximately 322
million illnesses, 21 million hospitalizations, and 732,000 premature deaths
will be prevented among children born during this period, at a cost savings to
society of $1.38 trillion” (Whitney et al., 2014). Likewise, the VFCs past
analyses suggest that implementation of a similar program is both cost
beneficial and effective. “Economic analysis for 2009 alone found that each
dollar invested in vaccines and administration, on average, resulted in $3 in
direct benefits and $10 in benefits when societal costs are included” (Whitney
et al., 2014).
With
regards to the organization specifically, a complimentary childhood
immunization program will exemplify the organization’s commitment to our consumers’
wellbeing. Which will hopefully increase our demand and impact their behavior
long term, making us their provider of choice.
Thank
you,
Antigone
Smith

Assessment Description
There
is often the requirement to evaluate descriptive statistics for data
within the organization or for health care information. Every year the
National Cancer Institute collects and publishes data based on patient
demographics. Understanding differences between the groups based upon
the collected data often informs health care professionals towards
research, treatment options, or patient education.
Using the data
on the “National Cancer Institute Data” Excel spreadsheet, calculate the
descriptive statistics indicated below for each of the Race/Ethnicity
groups. Refer to your textbook and the topic Resources, as needed, for
assistance in with creating Excel formulas.
Provide the following descriptive statistics:
Measures of Central Tendency: Mean, Median, and Mode
Measures of Variation: Variance, Standard Deviation, and Range (a formula is not needed for Range).
Once
the data is calculated, provide a 150-250 word analysis of the
descriptive statistics on the spreadsheet. This should include
differences and health outcomes between groups.
APA style is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
This
assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning
the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful
completion.
You are not required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.

Career Goal: Nursing
As you wrap up this Cornerstone course, you are about to embark on your own unique journey. Where you go will be dependent on your own circumstances, interests, and desires. It is up to you to think about what you want out of your education, your career, and your life going forward.
This week you will take what you learned in past modules about your academic and career future and meld that with the goal setting lessons from this week’s webtext work to create two action plans – one for your academic future and one for your career/professional future.
Step 1: Draft your Long-Term Goals
Begin by reading page 8.3 in the webtext about SMART goals and long-term goal setting. Follow the directions on those pages to come up with two long-term goals for your own life – one related to your academic future and one for your career/professional future. Follow the SMART framework outlined in the webtext to make sure each goal is: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely
Step 2: Create your Action Plans
Read pages 8.5-8.7 in the webtext to review a sample Action Plan and begin creating your own. Then go to the template Download the templatefor this assignment to begin filling in your two action plans using the chart provided. Delete the example provided there in red and fill it in with your own plan. You will need four short-term goals for each of your two long-term goals.
Your action plans should include at least one short-term goal that makes use of a resource on the Excelsior College Career Development (Links to an external site.)website. https://www.excelsior.edu/career-development/students/
Step 3: Reflect
Below your action plans, reflect on this exercise and your next steps. Respond to the following questions in a few sentences each:
Do the short and long-term goals I’ve laid out here match my interests, abilities, and values?
What questions or concerns do I still have about my goals? How can I work with others to resolve my concerns?
When I think about achieving these long-term goals, how do I feel?
How has my thinking about my academic and career/professional goals and plans changed during this Cornerstone course?
