Building the Business Case for Hypertension Control – Research, Evaluation, or Analytics Firm RFP

The CDC Foundation Non-Infectious Disease Department is seeking assistance from an economic evaluation consulting organization to establish a business case for employer engagement in hypertension prevention and control. This work emerges from the CDC Foundation's ongoing work in support of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Hypertension Control Roundtable, as they seek to engage employers in implementing health and well-being programs that address hypertension prevention and control and in implementing best-practice health benefits that support healthy blood pressure.

The CDC Foundation intends to award a contract to one selected respondent to this RFP to support establishing a business case for employer engagement in preventing and managing hypertension. To prepare, the Contractor will conduct a literature review and summarize what is known about the epidemiology and economics of hypertension from an employer perspective. The Contractor will use that information to design a budget impact model and educational tools for the employer audience. The goal is to inform employers of the health and economic benefits of addressing hypertension in the workforce while motivating employers to engage in evidence-based strategies, including health benefit design and actions to address hypertension. While this project focuses on mid-size and large self-funded employers, the Contractor will also be asked to consider relevant messaging for smaller, fully insured employers.
