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).

(14) The dyes were incorporated as (9-phenanthyl)-methyl methacrylate (PheMMA) and 4'-Dimethylamino-2-acryloxy-5-methyl-benzephenone (NBen) (39), (40) into a PBMA latex by a two-step seeded emulsion polymerization.
Here, we report that for batch reactions carried out within the above pH range, the latex particle morphologies of the PMMA second-stage systems change dramatically with increasing pH, while those for the PBMA system do not change at all.
Multiple strategies have been used and suggested to determine investment priorities in a systematic and explicit way, (2) from non-economic ones (such as needs assessment and core services definition) to economic methods, including different types of economic evaluation, quality-adjusted life year (QALY) league tables, program budgeting and marginal analysis (PBMA) and multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA).
