A comparison of three methods of setting prescribing budgets, using data derived from defined daily dose analyses of historic patterns of use. (1/372)

BACKGROUND: Prescribing matters (particularly budget setting and research into prescribing variation between doctors) have been handicapped by the absence of credible measures of the volume of drugs prescribed. AIM: To use the defined daily dose (DDD) method to study variation in the volume and cost of drugs prescribed across the seven main British National Formulary (BNF) chapters with a view to comparing different methods of setting prescribing budgets. METHOD: Study of one year of prescribing statistics from all 129 general practices in Lothian, covering 808,059 patients: analyses of prescribing statistics for 1995 to define volume and cost/volume of prescribing for one year for 10 groups of practices defined by the age and deprivation status of their patients, for seven BNF chapters; creation of prescribing budgets for 1996 for each individual practice based on the use of target volume and cost statistics; comparison of 1996 DDD-based budgets with those set using the conventional historical approach; and comparison of DDD-based budgets with budgets set using a capitation-based formula derived from local cost/patient information. RESULTS: The volume of drugs prescribed was affected by the age structure of the practices in BNF Chapters 1 (gastrointestinal), 2 (cardiovascular), and 6 (endocrine), and by deprivation structure for BNF Chapters 3 (respiratory) and 4 (central nervous system). Costs per DDD in the major BNF chapters were largely independent of age, deprivation structure, or fundholding status. Capitation and DDD-based budgets were similar to each other, but both differed substantially from historic budgets. One practice in seven gained or lost more than 100,000 Pounds per annum using DDD or capitation budgets compared with historic budgets. The DDD-based budget, but not the capitation-based budget, can be used to set volume-specific prescribing targets. CONCLUSIONS: DDD-based and capitation-based prescribing budgets can be set using a simple explanatory model and generalizable methods. In this study, both differed substantially from historic budgets. DDD budgets could be created to accommodate new prescribing strategies and raised or lowered to reflect local intentions to alter overall prescribing volume or cost targets. We recommend that future work on setting budgets and researching prescribing variations should be based on DDD statistics.  (+info)

Audit in the therapy professions: some constraints on progress. (2/372)

AIMS: To ascertain views about constraints on the progress of audit experienced by members of four of the therapy professions: physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and clinical psychology. METHODS: Interviews in six health service sites with a history of audit in these professions. 62 interviews were held with members of the four professions and 60 with other personnel with relevant involvement. Five main themes emerged as the constraints on progress: resources; expertise; relations between groups; organisational structures; and overall planning of audit activities. RESULTS: Concerns about resources focused on lack of time, insufficient finance, and lack of access to appropriate systems of information technology. Insufficient expertise was identified as a major constraint on progress. Guidance on designing instruments for collection of data was the main concern, but help with writing proposals, specifying and keeping to objectives, analysing data, and writing reports was also required. Although sources of guidance were sometimes available, more commonly this was not the case. Several aspects of relations between groups were reported as constraining the progress of audit. These included support and commitment, choice of audit topics, conflicts between staff, willingness to participate and change practice, and concerns about confidentiality. Organisational structures which constrained audit included weak links between heads of professional services and managers of provider units, the inhibiting effect of change, the weakening of professional coherence when therapists were split across directorates, and the ethos of regarding audit findings as business secrets. Lack of an overall plan for audit meant that while some resources were available, others equally necessary for successful completion of projects were not. CONCLUSION: Members of four of the therapy professions identified a wide range of constraints on the progress of audit. If their commitment to audit is to be maintained these constraints require resolution. It is suggested that such expert advice, but also that these are directed towards the particular needs of the four professions. Moreover, a forum is required within which all those with a stake in therapy audit can acknowledge and resolve the different agendas which they may have in the enterprise.  (+info)

Challenges in implementing a budget-holding programme for primary care clinics. (3/372)

In 1990, Kupat Holim Clalit (KHC), Israel's largest sick fund, initiated a demonstration programme for transforming a number of primary care clinics in the Negev district of southern Israel into autonomous budget-holding units. Four programme components were implemented in the nine participating clinics: allocation of a fixed budget; expansion of day-to-day decision-making authority; establishment of a computerized information system to produce monthly reports on expenditure; and provision of incentives for budgetary control. The research findings are based on a four-year evaluation of the programme, which involved a longitudinal case study conducted with multiple research tools: in-depth interviews, a staff survey, and analysis of relevant documents. This article analyzes the challenges involved in implementing the demonstration programme. It examines clinic staff evaluation of the implementation process (e.g. overall staff had a positive attitude toward it); assesses staff satisfaction with clinic participation in the programme (while only 33% were satisfied, only 21% said they would like the clinic to revert to the pre-programme model) and factors influencing this satisfaction (among them intrinsic benefits, perception of the programme as fair and age); and discusses the lessons to be learnt from the programme regarding effective implementation of organizational change. The main lessons indicate the importance of certain factors in implementing such programmes: (a) long-term management commitment to the programme; (b) appointment of agents of change/programme administrators; (c) establishment of a formal agreement between the parties involved; (d) establishment of communication channels between the parties involved; (e) intrinsic benefits for staff, perceived as incentives to economize; (f) reliable data, perceived to be reliable by the parties involved; (g) staff participation in the process of change; and (h) involvement of the participating unit as a single entity.  (+info)

Reform follows failure: II. Pressure for change in the Lebanese health sector. (4/372)

This paper describes how, against a background of growing financial crisis, pressure for reform is building up in the Lebanese health care system. It describes the various agendas and influences that played a role. The Ministry of Health, backed by some international organizations, has started taking the lead in a reform that addresses both the way care is delivered and the way it is financed. The paper describes the interventions made to prepare reform. The experience in Lebanon shows that this preparation is a process of muddling through, experimentation and alliance building, rather than the marketing of an overall coherent blueprint.  (+info)

Looking beyond the formulary budget in cost-benefit analysis. (5/372)

With the introduction of newer, more expensive psychotropic medications, healthcare providers and managed care administrators must consider whether these drugs offer "value for the money." A true picture of the benefits of these drugs emerges only when all the costs of treatment are considered. Focusing exclusively on the acquisition cost of the drug can result in a misleading impression of the drug's worth. Although the medication costs associated with treating a patient with a newer drug increase, use of these agents may actually result in an overall decrease in healthcare costs, through reductions in hospitalization and length of stay, use of mental health services, and prescriptions for adjunctive drugs. In one study of the newer antipsychotic agent risperidone, the overall annual costs of treating a patient with schizophrenia were reduced by nearly $8,000 (Canadian dollars), even though medication costs increased by approximately $1,200 (Canadian dollars). Retrospective and prospective pharmacoeconomic studies can provide valuable data on the cost effectiveness of treatment with newer psychotropic medications.  (+info)

Public hospital resource allocations in El Salvador: accounting for the case mix of patients. (6/372)

National hospitals in developing countries command a disproportionate share of medical care budgets, justified on the grounds that they have a more difficult patient case mix and higher occupancy rates than decentralized district hospitals or clinics. This paper empirically tests the hypothesis by developing direct measures of the severity of patient illness, hospital case-mix and a resource intensity index for each of El Salvador's public hospitals. Based on an analysis of inpatient care staffing requirements, national hospitals are found to receive funding far in excess of what case-mix and case-load considerations would warrant. The findings suggest that significant system-wide efficiency gains can be realized by allocating hospital budgets on the bases of performance-related criteria which incorporate the case-mix approach developed here.  (+info)

Shaping the future of Medicare. (7/372)

This article suggests that further major changes in Medicare at this time are unwarranted. The enactment of the Balanced Budget Act (BBA) has eliminated the need for quick action to assure solvency of the Part A Trust Fund, which is projected to be in balance for at least ten years. It will take time to implement and assess the effects of the BBA. The uncertainties of future trends in the health sector and Medicare suggest a go-slow approach. Future reforms to finance health care as the baby boom generation retires should be guided by the goals of continuing to assure health and economic security to elderly and disabled beneficiaries, with particular attention to the financial burdens on lower-income beneficiaries and those with serious illnesses or chronic conditions. Employers are cutting back on retiree health coverage, and the appropriate contribution of employers will need to be addressed. The BBA included major provisions to expand Medicare managed care choices. Special attention will need to be given to how well these innovations work, their cost impact on Medicare, the extent to which beneficiaries are able to make informed choices, and whether risk selection among plans and between traditional Medicare and plans can be adequately addressed. Most of the savings of BBA came from tighter payment rates to managed care plans and fee-for-service providers; it is unclear whether these will lead to rates well below the private sector or whether further savings can be achieved by extending these changes beyond 2002.  (+info)

Collection development and outsourcing in academic health sciences libraries: a survey of current practices. (8/372)

Academic health sciences libraries in the United States and Canada were surveyed regarding collection development trends, including their effect on approval plan and blanket order use, and use of outsourcing over the past four years. Results of the survey indicate that serials market forces, budgetary constraints, and growth in electronic resources purchasing have resulted in a decline in the acquisition of print items. As a result, approval plan use is being curtailed in many academic health sciences libraries. Although use of blanket orders is more stable, fewer than one-third of academic health sciences libraries report using them currently. The decline of print collections suggests that libraries should explore cooperative collection development of print materials to ensure access and preservation. The decline of approval plan use and the need for cooperative collection development may require additional effort for sound collection development. Libraries were also surveyed about their use of outsourcing. Some libraries reported outsourcing cataloging and shelf preparation of books, but none reported using outsourcing for resource selection. The reason given most often for outsourcing was that it resulted in cost savings. As expected, economic factors are driving both collection development and outsourcing practices.  (+info)

Background In the context of personalized cancer care, patients (pts) should receive the therapy that best meets their needs while optimizing the use of healthcare resources. A budget impact model was developed to compare each of the most commonly used mCRC treatment sequences - from 1st line to 3rd line in a Canadian context.. Methods This Excel based model considers the price of each agent, the number of cycles per treatment course, the relative dose intensity of the regimens to determine the cost of the most commonly used mCRC therapies and calculates the costs per overall sequence from 1st line to 3rd line. It takes into account the percentage of pts who benefit from a R0 resection post 1st line chemotherapy and who forego subsequent treatments. Factors such as different percentage use of 1st line FOLFOX vs FOLFIRI and pts volumes per line of therapy are considered in this model. Users can choose the scenarios they would like to examine. Key variables can be extracted through expert ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Controlling the cost of chronic diseases remains one of the vexing problems of developed and developing nations alike. Taiwan, faced with rapidly escalating healthcare costs associated with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) services utilization, imposed an outpatient dialysis global budget (ODBG) on outpatient dialysis care. This study, using a before and after study design with a comparison group, assessed the impact of this policy innovation on outpatient, inpatient and emergency room utilization. Using a difference in difference (DID) strategy and the generalized estimating equation (GEE) approach, this study found providers responded to these changes through cost reduction and revenue enhancement strategies. This study extends our understanding of provider responses to changes in reimbursement policies that target one segment of the continuum of care required by chronic disease patients.
By McGill Reporter Staff. Including significant spending on university-level research in the latest federal budget brought Finance Minister Joe Oliver (BA61/BCL64) some kudos from Canadas universities this week.. The first balanced budget in seven years, with a projected surplus of $1.4 billion in 2015-16, includes an investment of $1.33 billion spread out over six years, beginning in 2017-18, in research infrastructure. These funds are intended to help to train, attract and retain top researchers at Canadian universities.. "The budget includes a significant investment of $1.33 billion over six years in research infrastructure through the Canada Foundation for Innovation," Principal Suzanne Fortier said.

These key bodies have reiterated their call on the Federal Government to invest in public dental care in the upcoming Budget.

Education and the military would take among the biggest hits in Massachusetts from automatic cuts to the federal budget set to take hold this week, according to a report the White House issued Sunday as it seeks to avoid the impending economic fallout.
I want to be able to tell the American people we have truly solved the deficit problem. For me to do that, a budget agreement must meet these tests:. It must include the measures Ive recommended to increase economic growth and reduce dependence on foreign oil.. It must be fair. All should contribute, but the burden should not be excessive for any one group of programs or people.. It must address the growth of governments hidden liabilities.. It must reform the budget process, and further, it must be real.. I urge Congress to provide a comprehensive five-year deficit reduction program to me as a complete legislative package-with measures to assure that it can be fully enforced. America is tired of phony deficit reduction, or promise-now, save-later plans. Enough is enough. It is time for a program that is credible and real.. Finally, to the extent that the deficit-reduction program includes new revenue measures, it must avoid any measure that would threaten economic growth or turn us back ...

South Africa is home to the largest number of people living with HIV in the world, as well as the worlds largest public-sector antiretroviral treatment (ART) programme. Despite the absolute majority of it being domestically funded, planning and budgeting for this programme has in the past been based on assumptions regarding target population and unit cost and on politically expedient coverage targets. The aim of this thesis was to improve on this situation by developing a budget impact model that could project the number of adults and children in treatment based on sound epidemiological methods, and calculate the cost of treating them based on the results of detailed bottom-up cost analyses at relevant clinics and hospitals in South Africa. The thesis describes the methods used in generating the inputs for the model, including the outpatient and inpatient cost of ART provision to adults and children of different ages, and the rates of CD4 cell count development, mortality, loss to follow-up, ...
When you use budget planning, budget planning rules are added to advanced rules and account structures, and budget planning tasks and elements are added to Budgeting workflows. The Budget planning and Security purposes are also added to organization hierarchies. Budget planning is integrated with other modules, so you can bring in information from previous budgets, actual expenditures, fixed assets, and human resources. Budget planning is also integrated with Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word, so that you can use these tools to work with the budget planning data. For example, a budget manager can import a departments budget request into an Excel worksheet from a budget plan scenario. The data can be analyzed, updated, and charted in the worksheet, and then published back to the budget plan lines. ...
President Trump today released his federal fiscal year (FFY) 2018 budget proposal. While the budget request would cut a number of discretionary programs to accommodate increased defense spending, the President does not propose cuts to the Medicare or Medicaid programs. The President proposes a 20 percent ($15.1 billion) cut to the Department of Health and Human Services, including a $6 billion cut to the National Institutes for Health (NIH), which would negate funding boosts included in the 21st Century Cures Act. The cut to the NIH is likely to encounter strong opposition from both Republicans and Democrats, who passed the 21st Century Cures Act in December. In addition, the budget cuts $403 million from health professions and nurse training programs, and increases, by $500 billion, funding to expand opioid misuse prevention efforts and treatment for addiction. Although the President makes annual budget recommendations, Congress is under no obligation to adhere to these proposals. Before ...

Downloadable! The current state budget crisis in the EU and the numerous futile efforts to solve the problem has brought back the fraction of people that argument in favour of an exit strategy of Germany from the European monetary union (EMU) or even the break-up of the EMU in total. This paper investigates for the case of Germany, whether or not a return to a new deutsche mark would be beneficial. It applies the macro-econometric input-output model INFORGE for this analysis, as it is able to quantify direct and indirect effects on inter-industrial level as well as on the demand and supply sides of the economy. Above that, INFORGE considers sectoral effects which are extremely important for the evaluation of this impact analysis. The quantitative results of the computed projection shows, that a return to a national currency would lower Germanys growth path mainly due to the expected appreciation of the new currency. A second scenario, which assumes a worsening of the crisis within the remaining EMU
Over the last four-and-a-half years, we have been developing a model to address the financial challenges of rural hospitals in Pennsylvania by changing the fiscal environment in which they operate. This work was initiated under Dr. Karen Murphy, my predecessor at the Pennsylvania Department of Health.. Our initiative creates a framework through which a hospital works with the department of health and all of its major insurance payers - Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial plans - to transition from a fee-for-service arrangement to a monthly global budget. The global budget emphasizes population health and outpatient services and isnt dependent on fluctuations in volume of patients, particularly in terms of inpatient admissions.. While the planning for this initiative began with the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) in 2015, implementation began in January 2019. In January we worked with five hospitals to develop a transformation plan in collaboration with all the major payers. This ...

Punch Editorial Board. As the 2017 financial year gets under way, attention has been rightly riveted on the capacity or lack of it of the federal budget to halt the recession. While the economic policies of the centre are indeed decisive, Nigerians would do well to pay closer attention to the states where at least N2.6 trillion is to be spent on salaries and other overheads and over N3.53 trillion on capital ventures. More than ever before, Nigeria should strive for the ideal where the component states become drivers of economic growth rather than mere bureaucratic cost centres.. That basic function of federating states has been lost to decades of ruinous centralising arrangements that have reduced the 36 states to mere cost units of a mighty central government. This is reinforced in the budgets released by 33 states that, according to a report by the BusinessDay Research Intelligence Unit, are to spend a combined N6.22 trillion in 2017. The fatal flaws in their spending plans are twofold: apart ...

WASHINGTON -- The federal budget deficit will be $20 billion higher in fiscal 1999 than originally projected unless Congress gets health care spending under control, the Congressional Budget Office reported this week.. In its updated economic and budget outlook, released late Wednesday, the nonpartisan budget office revised its January figures and projected that the deficits for fiscal years 1994 through 1996 will be lower than anticipated because of unexpectedly strong economic growth.. However, unless Congress suppresses the increasing costs of mandatory health care spending, specifically Medicare and Medicaid, the CBO said that the deficit will begin to climb again slowly by the mid-1990s and then pick up steam in 1999.. Without cost containment measures, the two health care programs together will grow at a rate of 11% annually, the budget office said, while all other federal programs are projected to grow less than 4% a year.. The report details the growth in health costs, but makes no ...

A business impact analysis (BIA) predicts the consequences of disruption of a business function and process and gathers information needed to develop recovery strategies. Potential loss scenarios should be identified during a risk assessment. Operations may also be interrupted by the failure of a supplier of goods or services or delayed deliveries. There are many possible scenarios which should be considered.
The Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF) is used by the IMF to provide support for countries implementation of their poverty reduction and growth strategies. A key requirement in the design of PRGF programs is understanding the effects of reform program measures on vulnerable groups-particularly the poor-and how to devise measures to mitigate any negative effects. Poverty and social impact analysis (PSIA) is a critical instrument for pursuing this goal. The IMF has therefore established a small group of staff economists to facilitate the integration of PSIA into PRGF-supported programs. In this book, the groups members review analytical techniques used in PSIA as well as several important topics to which PSIA can make valuable contributions. These reviews should prove useful and interesting to readers interested in PSIA in general and the IMFs PSIA efforts in particular.

Often times, the wheels of government hardly turn at all…until an emergency appears, and then suddenly they spin like crazy to get traction. Such has been the case in Washington regarding farm policy, where a process that could have taken years has been accelerated into a period of a couple months. The threat of shrinking federal budgets has been the torque to prompt our legislators to make hard, necessary and prudent choices about the future.. By all appearances, it looks like the next Farm Bill essentially has been drafted, in a very focused fashion. And that means that regarding dairy policy, a lengthy journey is nearer to completion…even while we cant (to mix metaphors) count our chickens before theyre hatched.. The federal budget crisis has been the dominant theme in Washington this year. Every decision made, every proposal offered, has been shadowed by the need to align spending with priorities, and shrinking resources. Because the choices have become so tough, Congress as a whole ...

Congress and the White House have yet to finish negotiating and haggling over the U.S. federal budget for 1996, but the calendar and the law say that they ought to start thinking about 1997.. On February 5, President Bill Clinton issued a preliminary budget plan for 1997 that reflected his fiscal priorities as they were last stated in January, before budget talks with congressional Republicans broke down. Required by law to propose a spending plan by the first Monday in February, Clinton delivered to Congress what he termed a "thematic document," one that gives a minimally detailed outline of how the federal government should spend the taxpayers money in 1997. ...

Paul Ryan Leads. Representative Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, has produced another bold budget. He knows that President Obama and the Democrats will not allow his budget plan to become law this year, but he wants to recommit the Republican party to spending restraint, tax reform, and a strong defense.. Naturally, the Obama White House is already shrieking. Ryans budget, it says, "fails the test of balance, fairness, and shared responsibility." The test of balance? Ryans plan moves the federal budget into sustainable balance, even on the unfavorable assumptions of the Congressional Budget Office. President Obama has never produced a plan to balance the budget on any time frame; his Treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner, admitted as much in recent testimony before the House. Nor have Senate Democrats, who have not produced any budget at all for three years. We doubt that most Americans will find that consistently large deficits and ever-rising debt levels meet their ...

11/14/06. The Chicago Transit Board today approved the 2007 operating budget of$1.133 billion that maintains current fares and service levels. The 2007 budget is $96.5 million, or 9.3 percent more than the 2006 budget due to anticipated funding of healthcare, pension contributions and higher energy prices. Without these costs, the budget growth would have been 3.2 percent, or the rate of inflation.. In 2007, the CTA expects to generate $552.7 million through fares and other revenue initiatives. An additional $580.5 million in public funding is needed to fulfill CTAs operating needs and meet retiree pension and healthcare liabilities growing through an arbitration award and under state law. At present, only $470.3 million of the public funding has been identified. CTA will be required to take actions to balance its operating budget, as mandated by law, if no additional funding is obtained. ?While we have approved this budget, we are mindful that more than $110 million in funding has not been ...

Deeply concerned about significant federal budget cuts to research and higher education at a time when other nations are steadily increasing investments in those areas, University of Rochester President Joel Seligman joined 165 other university presidents and chancellors in calling on leaders in Washington to close what they call the innovation deficit..

The higher education leaders noted that investments in those areas lead to the types of innovation and new technologies that power the nations economy, create jobs, and reduce the budget deficit while ensuring the U.S. maintains its role as global leader. Over the last decade, U.S. research and development expenditures as a share of economic output have remained nearly constant in the U.S., ...

Around December 10, after we have counted the votes in the Freedom Election, our Freedom Officials call for a public campaign, to be carried on by "our" people in every Congressional district, to write a decent Federal budget for 1969-1970. (Such a budget could include cuts in the military budget of $40 or $45 billion; radical revision of taxes to lessen burdens on the working and lower middle class and to tax the great corporations; the commitment of huge sums of money to neighborhood-based, cooperatively run, democratically controlled economic-development centers and schools; etc.) The budget should be written in terms of local and national needs by conventions in each Congressional District that also elect one person each as delegate to a National Budget Convention to meet in Washington in early March or so to "pass" a new budget and lobby for it with the Congress. These 435 people will in effect be counter-Congressmen and possible candidates for the House, either in primaries or general ...

At that time each Department Director presents an outline of their Departments services, workload indicators, key accomplishments, and new initiatives to the Village Board. In April the Board reviews its Strategic Priorities, which Staff will use to develop its budget proposals for the following year. In June of each year the Board reviews and approves a five-year Capital Improvement Program. In July, multi-year projections are provided to the Board for the General and Water & Sewer Funds, which are the Villages largest operating funds. These projections include an estimated property tax levy amount. Based on these projections, the Board sets budget ceilings which each department uses as an upper limit when developing its proposed spending plans.

The EU adopts an annual budget to cover spending on, for instance, poorer regions, infrastructure, R&D, agriculture and fisheries, as well as its administration costs. The budget represents around 1% of the wealth generated annually by member countries. 76% of budget spending is delegated to member countries. The rest goes to international or intergovernmental agencies, or is managed centrally by the EU. The Court of Auditors and the European Parliament scrutinise the previous years spending through the discharge procedure. The budget is made up of contributions from member countries (based on their gross national income), customs duties and a proportion of VAT receipts from each country. The EUs multiannual financial framework (2014-2020) sets a ceiling for each category of spending which must be respected when agreeing annual budgets. ...
I am a huge fan of budgets. I find them essential to syncing up on monetary issues. But not just in business. The Gotham Gal and I use them in our personal life to avoid conflicts about money.. For a long time, probably the first fifteen years of our life together, we lived paycheck to paycheck. Sometimes it was two paychecks, other times it was one. For a brief period as I was starting Flatiron, it was none. I got shingles that year.. As our income went up and down, our spending had to do the same. I created fredsheets that we looked over, debated, discussed, and then adjusted and signed off on. Then we created budgets so that each of us would live to these spending plans. It worked. We always made it to the next paycheck. Many times by the skin of our teeth.. In the second fifteen years of our life together, weve had the pleasure of living in a different financial situation. But we still use budgets. We created budgets for our kids which they live up to. We created budgets for our real ...

Presents the latest information about personal budgets for older people, showing that older people experience positive benefits from having a personal budget, although these are not as marked as for other groups. The first section reflects briefly on recent changes to the policy context and then highlights new data about the performance of councils from the recent 2014 ADASS survey, and the third National Personal Budget survey from In Control. It then draws on research and recent TLAP events, which considered minimum processes and self-directed support, to review what does and doesnt work best for older people. The second section of this report presents some examples of what councils are doing to address the ongoing challenges both of the initial report and the current policy context. The case studies are summarised in Table. Section 3 examines personalisation and safeguarding, and specifically, whether personal budgets increase risks to older people whilst section 4 considers integration and ...
The growth experienced in the 1960s continued through the early 1970s before leveling off as both state and federal budgets came under pressure from lawmakers and taxpayers. The budgets did increase from 1970 to 1982. The station budget inereased from $12,371,906 in 1970-71 to $35,777,001 in 1981-82. The Extension budget went from $11,198,143 to $29,178,005 during the same l3-year period. However, inflation rose to 13.3 percent in 1979 and at both state and federal levels the percentage of the budgets allocated to the agricultural schools of the land-grant colleges and universities gradually declined. New outside funds were generated. Through the four supporting foundations (see Chapter 14), upwards of $1 million was generated each year. Also, two tobacco companies each contributed more than $1 million to the schools programs. More sophisticated hardware for research, extension, and classroom teaching gave more production and greater results. But with some 80 percent of operating funds ...
The budget approved by Florida lawmakers Monday adds about $120 million in new funding for the University of Florida, including money for Zika and medical marijuana research.Included in the new money for UF is $55 million to hire new faculty and provide raises for current faculty and graduate students.

ST. PAUL, Minn.-Top legislative Democrats say they will hold Gov. Tim Pawlenty responsible for the repercussions of coming state budget cuts. House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher (KEL-uh-her) and Senate Majority Leader Larry Pogemiller (POHG-uh-mill-er) sent Pawlenty a letter Friday saying that further reductions will hurt schools, nursing homes, hospitals, cities and counties, and the related job losses will damage the economy. The Republican governor asked lawmakers for suggestions as he prepares to use his executive authority to cut spending and delay payments in a deficit. The session ended last week without a budget deal, leaving a $2.7 billion shortfall. The DFLers say they did their part by passing a budget, but Pawlenty vetoed their package of tax increases and payment delays to cover the gap.. ...
Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- As a statement of political principle, it was clear, hard-hitting and far-reaching: The U.S. House of Representatives passed a federal budget bill over the weekend that reduced U.S. government spending by $61 billion for the current fiscal year, which ends September 30, 2011.
Statement from the Public Health Institute. The Presidents proposed FY2018 Budget "A New Foundation for American Greatness" is not new, not a foundation, and is far from great. The Public Health Institute opposes this budget and urges members of congress to reject it.. By gutting the National Institutes of Health including the National Cancer Institute, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Environmental Protection Agency, the State Department/USAID, USDA nutrition programs and others, this budget divests from the public health and safety net infrastructure that keeps our country strong, healthy and secure. Slashing SNAP funding by almost 30% will take food out of the mouths of our most vulnerable communities. Proposed cuts to USAID put health and wellness around the globe at risk, and raise the chance that emerging diseases abroad have greater impacts here at home.. This budget would set spending for these programs at below 2004 levels, rolling back the clock on ...
An NCR Editorial President Obama and congressional leaders are still negotiating the federal budget for next year. The difficulty of these negotiations is heightened by the need to raise the federal debt ceiling, avoiding a government default and the consequent economic nightmare that such a default would entail. Unfortunately, it appears that the nations political compass has veered so far to the right that any resolution is likely to harm the poor and assault the already strained sense of national community that we Catholics call the common good.

Later, she learned to sing songs during circle time, joining the other children as they hopped up and down to a rousing rendition of the Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed. [...] somewhere in there, we were building the foundations for lifelong practices, like learning to take turns with a particularly popular toy. [...] though, the classes at Laurel Hill Playground - along with the classes at West Portal, Mission and Eureka Valley recreation centers and other sites - have become the latest casualties of budget cuts. The citys Recreation and Park Department, faced with a $12.5 million budget deficit, decided last year to lease a few of its clubhouses to help close the gap. For now, some of the moms have formed an online group to keep in touch and continue meeting occasionally at the park, each of us bringing a few toys to share.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Scientists monitoring Alaskas volcanoes have been forced to shut down stations that provide real-time tracking of eruptions and forgo repairs of seismic equipment amid ongoing federal budget cuts - moves that could mean delays in getting vital information to airline pilots
President Trumps FY 18 budget request to Congress includes significant cuts to global health. If enacted, these cuts would total approximately $2.5 billion compared to FY 17 (a 23% reduction), and bring funding below FY 2008 levels (see Figure 1). For some global health program areas, the cuts are particularly steep. For example, PEPFAR funding to countries is cut by more than $600 million in the request and all $575 million for bilateral family planning1 is eliminated (see Figure 2). Still, the Presidents budget is just the first step in a longer process where Congress now takes center stage and already, many members of Congress have indicated that they do not support cuts of this magnitude.2 At the same time, the proposed cuts - which represent the Administrations statement of its policy priorities and set the initial framework for budget discussions in the coming year - in an already difficult budget environment suggest that the road ahead may be difficult for U.S. global health programs ...

The poll asked Americans to guess who much the federal government spends, as a percentage of the total budget, on a variety of areas. The public did relatively well when it came to some of the big-ticket items like Social Security and Medicare.. But on some of the hut-button issues, the public wasnt even close. Americans, for example, think about 10% of the budget goes to "aid to foreign countries for international development and humanitarian assistance." The actual number is about 1%.. Heres an even more entertaining one: Americans think about 5% of the budget goes to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The actual number is about 0.1%. (In dollar figures, the public seems to actually believe the CPB gets $178 billion, as compared to the $420 million it received last year.). Respondents think 10% of the budget goes to "food and nutrition assistance for the poor," 7% goes to "housing assistance for the poor," and 10% goes to federal funding to education. None of these figures are even ...
Budget Committee members had no further questions for the chief. Truck Chassis Purchase Chief Smith said it might be wise to move up the purchase of the next fire truck chassis to FY 2013/14 due to changes in EPA regulations that will make large trucks more expensive and potentially less reliable. He said the 1989 tanker was originally scheduled for replacement in FY 14/15. Hubene asked if money is being put aside. Stu said the last two trucks have been financed, so no additions have been made to the truck reserve fund. He said there will be one more $7,000 payment due on the 2010 truck after the FY 12/13 budget. There was a short discussion on whether to retain or sell the 1989 tanker once a new truck is on line. The committee said the Chief could work up a price for the 2013/14 budget. Ambulance Contract Stu said he had based the previous two years on a projected population of 1,800, but the actual population was 1,602. He said the figure in the 12/13 budget is based on the current per capita ...

It only took that long because of putting in ALL my accounts at one time. I wanted to get it all done and over with.. What I really really like about this program is that it has a separate budget section. The program allows you to set accounts as being either on the budget or off the budget. If it is on the budget then it shows on your budget page. If the account is off budget it doesnt show on your budget page and you manage it separately.. So I can see everything that affects my budget in one place. I have it set up with master categories for things that have to be paid each month (mortgage, water bill, electric), things that are optional (cable, phone), things that need to be paid quarterly or yearly (insurance, taxes), and things that we are saving up for (new car, emergencies).. One of the best things about this program is that you are NOT supposed ...

Calculating the Cuts. The Commonwealths Chapter 70 formula for education serves as a detailed maintenance budget, reflecting the changing costs year-to-year of providing an adequate education in Massachusetts. The foundation budget calculates the present cost of providing an adequate education in each of the states public school districts by factoring in 11 different education cost categories and it is updated each year to reflect inflation and changes in enrollment. (It should be noted, however, that while some changes have been made to the Chapter 70 formula, most notably through the FY 2007 budget, the formulas underlying cost allocations have not been fundamentally reevaluated or updated since its creation in 1993.)1 Because education costs vary based upon individual student needs, enrollment calculations reflect specific costs associated with student grade level, socioeconomic status, and English language proficiency. Once the total foundation budget has been established, state and local ...

Marylands transition to the new system took place ahead of schedule. Under the CMMI agreement, Maryland was supposed to transition 80 percent of hospital revenue away from fee-for-service payments by the end of 2018. Yet in practice, by mid-2014, the state had already transitioned 95 percent of hospital revenue away from fee-for-service.16 According to stakeholders, Maryland hospitals largely concluded that it would be a better business strategy to avoid a period of uncertainty and make a quick transition away from fee for service to set themselves up for success under the new global budget system.17 This is a dynamic that might not necessarily repeat itself in other states, given Marylands long history of hospital rate setting.. In addition, Maryland achieved the five-year Medicare savings target it had promised the CMMI well ahead of schedule. According to the state Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC), by the end of 2016, the new model had already generated $586 million in ...

The McGowan Government has released its first state budget, which will offer new funding to Western Australias education sector as of 2018..

He also noted that the law will save the federal budget a quarter of a trillion dollars over 10 years, and will slow the growth in health care costs. Many provisions in the Affordable Care Act will help to directly lower health insurance premiums, such as increased transparency about insurance premium increases and limits on the percent of insurer premiums that go to administrative expenses and profits. Prevention is being enhanced through better coverage and the elimination of copays for preventive services.. By 2014, when key features of the law-such as the state health insurance exchanges, with subsidies for private coverage, and expanded eligibility for Medicaid-are in place, all Americans will have access to affordable coverage.. As the President observed, now is the time to turn to the bipartisan goal of further reducing the growth in health care costs by adopting medical malpractice reforms and making health care safer for patients. He praised the use of electronic health records in the ...
