Programme Budgeting and Marginal Analysis

A process used by decision makers in the UK to maximise the impact of healthcare resources on the health needs of a local population and a practical way of setting priorities—e.g., care of the elderly, maternity services. PBMA involves being explicit about goals/objectives within programmes, identifying inputs and desired outcomes within the programme.

Programme budgeting assesses past resource allocation in specified programmes, with a view to tracking future resource allocation in those same programmes. Marginal analysis assesses the added benefits and added costs of a proposed investment (or the lost benefits and lower costs of a proposed dis-investment).

In this Commentary, I consider the use of MSA to examine the decision to use PBMA by IWK to assist in its decision-making, and what further research might be undertaken to further explore how and why organizations choose to formally and explicitly set priorities and why they choose certain frameworks to assist them in such decision-making.
