ACIP: Guidance for Health Economics Studies, effective as of the ACIP meeting of June 25-26, 2008
These procedures should be followed for economic analyses to be presented to the ACIP, effective as of the ACIP meeting of June 25-26, 2008.
Cost-effectiveness and other types of economic analyses are frequently presented during meetings of the ACIP and ACIP Work Groups (WGs). The Guidance for Health Economics Studies Presented to the ACIP (Guidance) was developed to ensure that economic data presented to the ACIP and to the WGs are uniform in presentation, understandable, and of the highest quality. The Guidance mandates a technical review of any economic study that is being considered for presentation to the ACIP or an ACIP WG. Economic study materials that are being submitted for review must include two items: (1) a document or report that describes the methods and results of the study, and (2) a slide set and/or other presentation materials.
- A detailed description of the materials to be presented, the timeline for submission, and the review process may be found in: ACIP Guidance for Health Economics Studies Cdc-pdf[9 pages]
- A template for preparation of presentation slides may be found in: ACIP Guidance for Presentation Slides for Health Economics Studies Cdc-ppt[18 slides]
The report and presentation materials must be submitted to the relevant ACIP WG Chair and CDC Lead staff person no later than 8 weeks before the presentation is to be made at an ACIP meeting or to the WG. Submitted studies will be reviewed by one or more CDC economists and returned for revisions/response at least 4 weeks before the presentation.
