Whatcom County Estimated Initiative Costs

Wikis > Community-based Health Levers WIKI > Whatcom County Estimated Initiative Costs
The ReThink Health model not only estimates the health and economic effects of simulated interventions, but also the cost of implementing each selected initiative over time. Below are cumulative program spending estimates for in the first five simulated years (2012‐2017).

These figures account for size and composition of the local health system. They are based on scenarios in which each initiative was simulated individually at its 100% lever setting (i.e., with the maximum plausible reach and effectiveness). Program costs vary with different lever settings and may differ in scenarios with multiple initiatives due to interactions. Default unit costs may be adjusted, as needed.
