Budget Impact Analysis II covers the concrete application of the 6-step approach for developing budget impact analyses and provides hands-on learning with two different budget impact models programmed in Excel. The course will review the basics of budget impact analysis, interpretation of results, simplicity versus accuracy and face validity, and how budget impact analyses are used by payers and other decision makers. Technical topics will include static versus dynamic budget impact models, considerations for device and diagnostic technologies, and realistic features such as patient copayments and use of generics.

The instructors will walk through 2 different budget impact analyses programmed in Excel (one static and one dynamic) and work with participants during hands-on exercises to enhance these models. The instructors will also review good practices for building budget impact models and provide a number of Excel tips. The Excel-based budget impact models used for the course will be provided to participants in advance of the conference. This course is designed for those who have basic knowledge of budget impact analyses and desire exposure to these analyses in Excel. Participants who wish to gain hands-on experience must bring their personal laptops with Microsoft Excel for Windows installed.
