What’s Your ROI? A Web-based Tool to Estimate Economic Returns on Investments for Public Health Agency Projects

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officers (ASTHO), through a cooperative agreement with CDC’s Office for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support, developed a web-based tool to calculate the return on investment (ROI) associated with public health agency programs or business improvements.

Available online: http://www.astho.org/Programs/Evaluation/

It is included in the CJS Resource Library under the categories listed below. Select a link to find other resources in that category.

  • Fiscal and Service Issues: The tool can be used prospectively as a decision-making tool for new projects or initiatives.
  • Monitoring and Improving: The tool can be used retrospectively to show economic returns of investments already made.
  • Quality Improvement: The tool can be used during quality improvement (QI) implementation to track ROI.
