Review, update, and finalize the previous sections of your Health Care Program Evaluation Proposal.
Write a draft of the next four sections to include the evaluation model design, evaluation methods, data analysis and reporting, and economic evaluation.
• Evaluation model design
oProvide an overall qualitative or quantitative approach to the evaluation.
oDescribe from where, whom, and when data will be collected.
oDescribe the participants and sampling, if appropriate to the program being evaluated.
oIf evaluating a program involving input or by patients, clients, or consumers, how will participants be recruited or selected, such as for a patient satisfaction survey?
o Sampling methods and sample size: Will the program evaluation model evaluate all participants, processes, outputs, or outcomes, or use a research-based sampling method?
oProcedures for data collection: , laboratory or quality software application data capture and reporting, focus group discussion, or questionnaire surveys.
oWill the evaluation include capturing quantitative and qualitative data and information?
• Data analysis and reporting
oWhat software programs, report generation tools, and analytics will be used for compiling, data mining, storing, and retrieving current and historical data for analysis and reporting?
oWhat are the overall capabilities and limitations of the software?
o Is there any known data needed for program evaluation that is not currently accessible through the health care organization’s interfaced information system?
o Is there a cost-benefit consideration involving manual collection for analysis and custom reports for reporting warranting economic evaluation or cost analysis?
• Economic evaluation
o Problem or purpose warranting an economic evaluation
o The economic- or program-related theory that supports an economic evaluation
o Economic or cost analysis questions to be answered related to the purpose
o Stipulate if comparing to another program or interventions
o Justifying the need for a cost description or analysis
o Decision rules
o Each type of economic evaluation and cost analysis
o Accounting perspective and corresponding costs & benefits to be evaluated
o Data and methods used
o Resource limitation
