The United States allocates health care without an overt system of rationing. This article analyzes the forces that guide resource allocation to craniofacial care. Various possible allocation systems are reviewed for how decision makers might evaluate proposed programs for legislative funding. Using a case-based exercise, readers are asked to weigh the potential costs and benefits of six health and social programs. These programs are also systematically examined for factors that are likely to affect resource allocation decisions. Eleven factors that affect decision-making are utilized in the analysis, ranging from the cost per client to emotional or human interest content of the proposed programs. Decisions about preventive programs are compared with those involving therapeutic programs. The allocation of resources to craniofacial programs, including those for children with rare major craniofacial conditions, is considered in the context of social justice and broad contemporary ethical and ...
We present approaches utilizing aspects of data analytics and stochastic modeling techniques and applied to various areas in healthcare. In general, the thesis has composed of three major components. Firtsly, we propose a comparison analysis between two of the very well-known infectious disease modeling techniques to derive effective vaccine allocation strategies. This study, has emerged from the fact that individuals are prioritized based on their risk profiles when allocating limited vaccine stocks during an influenza pandemic. Computationally expensive but realistic agent-based simulations and fast but stylized compartmental models are typically used to derive effective vaccine allocation strategies. A detailed comparison of these two approaches, however, is often omitted. We derive age-specific vaccine allocation strategies to mitigate a pandemic influenza outbreak in Seattle by applying derivative-free optimization to an agent-based simulation and also to a compartmental model. We compare ...
OBJECTIVE: Universal coverage with insecticide-treated bed nets is a cornerstone of modern malaria control. Mozambique has developed a novel bed net allocation strategy, where the number of bed nets allocated per household is calculated on the basis of household composition and assumptions about who sleeps with whom. We set out to evaluate the performance of the novel allocation strategy. METHODS: 1,994 households were visited during household surveys following two universal coverage bed net distribution campaigns in Sofala and Nampula Provinces in 2010-2013. Each sleeping space was observed for the presence of a bed net, and the sleeping patterns for each household were recorded. The observed coverage and efficiency were compared to a simulated coverage and efficiency had conventional allocation strategies been used. A composite indicator, the product of coverage and efficiency, was calculated. Observed sleeping patterns were compared with the sleeping pattern assumptions. RESULTS: In ...
My second set of recommendations is centered on marketing & manufacturing strategies and tactics, particularly in the U. S. After read the case, I am convinced that to successfully grow EMI medical imaging business and continue to reduce its dependence on the fickle and low margin music business, EMI has to succeed in the U. S market - the largest and most lucrative market. EMI should streamline and strengthen its U. S. operations, including manufacturing, and provide U. S. subsidiary more decision-making power on product development, parts supplying, pricing and service.. First, recruitment of a leader for its worldwide medical imaging business should be a priority. This person must have a strong U. S. operation experience and expertise in the medical diagnostics imaging industry. He or she should focus all energy to manage the relatively small but growing and most profitable EMIs medical imaging business. Marketing, manufacturing, R&D and resource allocation decisions should be made swiftly ...
For any organism, resource allocation does not occur in a void: the environmental context modifies outcomes. We explored how this influenced the evolution of allocation strategies for semelparous life histories in constant, temporally varying and autocorrelated environments. Temporal autocorrelation might be especially important for semelparous plants because they frequently inhabit disturbance-driven habitats characterized by successional dynamics which may contribute to autocorrelation (Tuljapurkar & Haridas 2006). Although previous life-history studies have considered temporal autocorrelation (Orzack 1985; Tuljapurkar & Wiener 2000), our focus on allocation strategies and the evolution of survival while including density dependence are novel.. In constant environments, allocation to survival decreases as environmental quality improves (figure 2a), reflecting nonlinearities in survival and environmental quality: beyond a certain level, allocating resources to survival is futile because ...

TY - GEN. T1 - Resource allocation over network dynamics without timescale separation. AU - Proutiere, Alexandre. AU - Yi, Yung. AU - Tian, Lan. AU - Chiang, Mung. PY - 2010. Y1 - 2010. N2 - We consider a widely applicable model of resource allocation where two sequences of events are coupled: on continuous time axis (t), network dynamics evolve over time. On a discrete time axis [t], certain control laws update resource allocation variables according to some proposed algorithm. The algorithmic updates, together with exogenous events out of the algorithms control, change the network dynamics, which in turn changes the trajectory of the algorithm, thus forming a loop that couples the two sequences of events. In between the algorithmic updates at [t - 1] and [t], the network dynamics continue evolve randomly as influenced by the previous variable settings at time [t - 1]. The standard way used to avoid the subsequent analytic difficulty is to assume the separation of timescales, which in turn ...
A system is provided for transmitting/receiving downlink resource allocation information in a communication system. In the system, a base station generates first information including downlink resource allocation information necessary for supporting a first mode supported by the base station, generates second information including length information of the first information, and transmits the first information and the second information. A mobile station notifies the base station of a second mode supported by the mobile station, receives, after the notification, the first information and the second information from the base station, and skips without decoding as much downlink resource allocation information as a length corresponding to the length information without decoding, if the first mode is different from the second mode.
Reporting to the NMRT President, the charge of the Self-Study/Resource Allocation Committee is broad and transcends overall NMRT committee lines.

Saprotrophic woodland fungi forage for mineral nutrients and woody resources by extension of a mycelial network across the forest floor. Different species explore at different rates and establish networks with qualitatively differing architecture. However, detailed understanding of fungal foraging behaviour has been hampered by the absence of tools to quantify resource allocation and growth accurately and non-invasively. To solve this problem, we have used photon-counting scintillation imaging (PCSI) to map and quantify nutrient allocation and localised growth simultaneously in heterogeneous resource environments. We show that colonies spontaneously shift to an asymmetric growth pattern, even in the absence of added resources, often with a distinct transition between the two growth phases. However, the extent of polarisation was much more pronounced and focussed in the presence of an additional cellulose resource. In this case, there was highly localised growth, often at the expense of growth elsewhere
We quantify the emergence of biofuel markets and its impact on world agriculture using the multimarket, multicommodity international FAPRI model. The model incorporates trade-offs between biofuel, feed, and food production and consumption and international feedback effects of the emergence through world prices and trade. We shock the model with exogenous changes in ethanol demand, first in the United States, then in Brazil and other countries, and compute shock multipliers for land allocation decisions for important crops and countries. The Brazilian ethanol expansion using sugarcane has fewer consequences on existing arable land allocation than the U.S. ethanol expansion does using corn feedstock.

An accompanying editorial by Richard B. Freeman, M.D. of the Division of Transplant Surgery at Tufts-New England Medical Center in Boston, MA, notes that while quality of life is an important component of healthcare decision-making, decisions about organ allocation must be considered within the context of the severe organ shortage. In the current extremely constrained donor supply, the question is not whether an individual patient s HRQL [health-related quality of life] is poor enough to warrant intervention with transplantation but more directly, to whom, among all of the potential recipients of a given donor liver, should that donor liver be offered. He maintains that quality of life should not outweigh mortality risk in organ allocation decisions and that a patient must first be alive in order to measure his or her quality of life ...
Kidney paired donation (KPD) was first suggested in 1986, but it was not until 2000 when the first paired donation transplant was performed in the USA. In the past decade, KPD has become the fastest growing source of transplantable kidneys, overcoming the barrier faced by living donors deemed incompatible with their intended recipients. This review provides a basic overview of the concepts and challenges faced by KPD as we prepare for a national pilot program with the United Network for Organ Sharing. Several different algorithms have been creatively implemented in the USA and elsewhere to transplant paired donors, each method uniquely contributing to the success of KPD. As the paired donor pool grows, the problem of determining allocation strategies that maximize equity and utility will become increasingly important as the transplant community seeks to balance quality and quantity in choosing the best matches. Financing for paired donation is a major issue, as philanthropy alone cannot ...
Risk Parity is a portfolio allocation strategy based on targeting risk levels across the various components of an investment portfolio.
In their experimental task, called the Behavioral Investment Allocation Strategy (BIAS) task, Kuhnen and Knutson asked subjects to make an investment choice between three alternatives. Two of the alternatives were risky stocks (either Stock A or Stock B), one with a net positive payoff over the 10 trials, and the other with a net negative payoff over the ten trials. At the beginning of each block of 10 trials, subjects did not know which stock was profitable or which was money losing. The good stock had a payoff of +$10 (50%), $0 (25%), and -$10 (25%), for an expected value per trial of $2.50. While the bad stock had payoffs of +$10 (25%), $0 (25%), and -$10 (50%), for an expected value per trial of -$2.50. A third choice was a bond which yielded a constant return of $1 per trial ...

A resource allocation of multiple compressed AV streams delivered over the Internet is disclosed that achieves end-to-end optimal quality through a multimedia streaming TCP-friendly transport (MSTFP) protocol that adaptively estimates the network bandwidth while smoothing the sending rate. Resources allocated dynamically according to a media encoding distortion and network degradation algorithm. A scheme is also disclosed for dynamically estimating the available network bandwidth for streaming of objects, such as MPEG4 multiple video objects, in conjunction with the MSTFP protocol. The scheme can account for packet-loss rates to minimize end-to-end distortion for media delivery.

Downloadable! We study the portfolio allocation decisions of Australian households using the relatively new Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey. We focus on household allocations to risky financial assets. Our empirical analysis considers a range of hypothesised determinants of these allocations. We find background risk factors posed by labour income uncertainty and health risk are important. Credit constraints and observed risk preferences play the expected role. A positive age gradient is identified for risky asset holdings and home-ownership is associated with greater risky asset holdings. A unifying theme for many of our empirical findings is the important role played by financial awareness and knowledge in determining risky asset holdings. Many non-stockholding households appear to lack the experience and financial literacy that might enable them to benefit from direct investment in stocks.
This paper analyses whether the use of uncorrelated underlying risk factors, as opposed to correlated asset returns, can lead to a more efficient framework for measuring and managing portfolio diversification.. The paper, by academics at EDHEC Business School and SYMMYS, acknowledges that the ability to construct well-diversified portfolios is a challenge of critical importance in the context of designing good proxies for performance-seeking portfolios. It shows that a seemingly well-diversified allocation to asset classes may well result in a portfolio that is heavily concentrated in terms of factor exposures. In this context, it argues, it is of high relevance to measure and manage the effective number of bets in a portfolio.. To access the paper click below.

Downloadable! One set of n objects of type I, another set of n objects of type II, and an amount M of money is to be completely allocated among n agents in such a way that each agent gets one object of each type with some amount of money. We propose a new solution concept to this problem called a perfectly fair allocation. It is a refinement of the concept of fair allocation. An appealing and interesting property of this concept is that every perfectly fair allocation is Pareto optimal. It is also shown that a perfectly fair allocation is envy free and gives each agent what he likes best, and that a fair allocation need not be perfectly fair. Furthermore, we give a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of a perfectly fair allocation. Precisely, we show that there exists a perfectly fair allocation if and only if the valuation matrix is an optimality preserved matrix. Optimality preserved matrices are a class of new and interesting matrices. An extension of the model is also discussed.

Usage Notes. Specifying the Path of the Allocation. The path of the allocation is the route the allocation system takes to go from the source data to the target data. Very different results derive from different allocation paths. You specify the path with the RELATION statements that you enter in the aggmap. The relation objects in the RELATION statements and the order of those statements specify the path and the method of allocation.. The allocation path goes from any level in the hierarchy of a dimension to any lower level of the hierarchy. You use a relation object that relates the members of the hierarchy to each other (a self-relation) to identify the elements of the hierarchy that you want to participate in the allocation. The allocation proceeds down the hierarchy of the dimension in the first RELATION statement in the aggmap, then down the hierarchy of the second RELATION statement, and so on.. When the dimension has multiple hierarchies, you must use the qdr argument in the RELATION ...

BACKGROUND Recently, a global commitment has been made to expand access to antiretrovirals (ARVs) in the developing world. However, in many resource-constrained countries the number of individuals infected with HIV in need of treatment will far exceed the supply of ARVs, and only a limited number of health-care facilities (HCFs) will be available for ARV distribution. Deciding how to allocate the limited supply of ARVs among HCFs will be extremely difficult. Resource allocation decisions can be made on the basis of many epidemiological, ethical, or preferential treatment priority criteria. METHODS AND FINDINGS Here we use operations research techniques, and we show how to determine the optimal strategy for allocating ARVs among HCFs in order to satisfy the equitable criterion that each individual infected with HIV has an equal chance of receiving ARVs. We present a novel spatial mathematical model that includes heterogeneity in treatment accessibility. We show how to use our theoretical framework, in
PCV prevents the transmission of pneumococcal bacterial diseases such as pneumonia, otitis media, bacteraemia and meningitis, some of the major causes of morbidity and death among Bhutanese children. The findings showed that both PCV10 and PCV13 offer good value for money in Bhutan but PCV13 yields better health outcomes and has a lower five-year budget impact.. Stakeholders including Bhutans High-Level Committee supported the results of the study; subsequently, cabinet members approved the introduction of the vaccine which was introduced into national routine immunization services in 2018.. Following this successful collaboration, Bhutanese stakeholders are now increasingly using HTA in resource allocation decisions.. In 2017, EMTD began an economic evaluation of the rotavirus vaccine (which prevents the rotavirus infection, a leading cause of severe diarrhoea in children) with support from PATH and iDSI. The study found that, at the current cost-effectiveness threshold in Bhutan, the ...
BACKGROUND:Accurately estimating rates of disease progression is of central importance in developing mathematical models used to project outcomes and guide resource allocation decisions. Our objective was to specify a multivariate regression model to estimate changes in disease progression among individuals on highly active antiretroviral treatment in British Columbia, Canada, 1996-2011.
Fog computing is emerging as a powerful and popular computing paradigm to perform IoT (Internet of Things) applications, which is an extension to the cloud computing paradigm to make it possible to execute the IoT applications in the network of edge. The IoT applications could choose fog or cloud computing nodes for responding to the resource requirements, and load balancing is one of the key factors to achieve resource efficiency and avoid bottlenecks, overload, and low load. However, it is still a challenge to realize the load balance for the computing nodes in the fog environment during the execution of IoT applications. In view of this challenge, a dynamic resource allocation method, named DRAM, for load balancing in fog environment is proposed in this paper. Technically, a system framework for fog computing and the load-balance analysis for various types of computing nodes are presented first. Then, a corresponding resource allocation method in the fog environment is designed through static

Given the generally long term nature of pension plans, the behavior of the market plays a crucial role in making a pension plan able to meet its obligations. Regardless of the market performance, the structure of the benefits remains the same, unless they are negotiated to be at a different level. In this paper, we studied primarily the impact of market performance on a pension plans ability to meet its obligations. We studied the period from 1974 to 2010 and included asset allocation strategies that varied from allocating 25% to 100% weight assigned to equity portfolios. The goals were to determine which type of asset allocation system is the most efficient across all time horizons. Our results show that it is not necessary to have an overly aggressive posture to equities. Indeed, as assets become more exposed to equities, the efficiency of a portfolio (as measured by Sharpe ratio) declines. We found that an exposure to equity in the range of 35%-50% is sufficient to meet most pension ...
The main focus of the new system has been to ensure fairness for patients awaiting transplantation, an important and noble goal. Unfortunately, the inefficiency of the current allocation system in allocation of the hard to place kidneys adds extended cold ischemic time, which often becomes the final strike against them, resulting in unnecessary kidney wastage.. We have an excellent model that can serve as a starting point for a new paradigm in allocation in the United States. EuroTransplant has developed an efficient system for minimizing kidney wastage that includes the Recipient Oriented Extended Allocation system and the EuroTransplant Senior Program. The first system converts the allocation process from patient centered to program centered after a finite number of offers are declined, resulting in placement of kidneys that would otherwise likely be discarded. This is activated when a kidney is declined by five separate transplant programs for medical reasons. In addition, this system can be ...

Historically credit risk portfolios have been managed within separate lines of business, creating silos of activity separate from market and operational risk. But regulatory requirements, accounting rules changes and an evolving economic environment are forcing financial and risk stakeholders to collaborate across the firm. Banks are now integrating credit portfolio strategies with other lines of business that affect market, liquidity and operational risk.. With this sea change, credit risk models need to support risk management and capital allocation decisions at a firmwide level - and they need powerful, automated tools to address this challenge. Developing and executing credit risk models as they become increasingly integrated with firmwide risk, balance sheet targets and limits will require new software and technology, from more sophisticated models to enhanced data management and high performance computing.. ...
Developing appropriate and acceptable technology for limited resource farmers is made difficult by the nature of these farms, and our limited ability to identify basic economic data relative to their farming systems. A distinguishing characteristic of limited resource farmers is the integration of the farm household as the central part of the farming system. These farmers will tend to view their farm activities from the perspective of family welfare rather than from a strictly production point of view. Maintaining and protecting family welfare often is their primary objective. Consequently, these farmers are sensitive to activities that might jeopardize family welfare and therefore, survival. This sensitivity causes limited resource farmers to be high risk averse and to select groups of household and production activities which minimize risk at the expense of maximizing profits. The research for this thesis was carried out in Sitiung 5c, a transmigration area on West Sumatera, Indonesia. It ...

Clouds, HPC clusters, HTC systems, and testbeds all serve different parts of the computing ecosystem: each are designed for different types of workloads and suited to different types of research and commercial users. We propose that an effective way to share resources among these diverse applications is to not shoehorn them all into the same resource management framework, but to partition a common hardware substrate among different frameworks: for example, to have part of a cluster managed by a cloud framework such as OpenStack, part of it managed by an HPC scheduler such as SLURM, etc. In order to efficiently manage such a shared resource, it must be possible to adjust the set of resources controlled by each in an elastic manner.. While resource allocation and scheduling within each of these types of environments are well studied, what we consider in this paper is elasticity between them. Our goal is to enable each management framework to separately manage the resources currently within its own ...
Applications hosted in the cloud have become indispensable in several contexts, with their performance often being key to business operation and their running costs needing to be minimized. To minimize running costs, most modern virtualization technologies such as Linux Containers, Xen, and KVM offer powerful resource control primitives for individual provisioning -- that enable adding or removing of fraction of cores and/or megabytes of memory with granularities of seconds. Despite the technology being ready, there is a lack of proper techniques for fine-grained resource allocation, because there is an inherent challenge in determining the correct composition of resources an application needs, with varying workload, to ensure deterministic performance. This paper presents a control-based approach for the management of multiple resources, accounting for the resource consumption, together with the application performance, enabling fine-grained vertical elasticity. The control strategy ensures ...

I think the arguments most likely to persuade the obstinate are the historical and fairness ones. I dont think car people respond to arguments about health, the environment, or conservation of scarce resources because those benefits are either abstract or enjoyed by someone other than them. What they care about is the immediate (perceived) convenience and comfort of being able to take their cars everywhere and not being slowed down by bikes (although they dont seem to mind much being slowed down by other cars).. So if I were making a pro-bike speech, this would be my approach: (1) the streets, for thousands of years, have been public space for all to use and (2) people who drive cars, especially in dense urban environments, impose costs on others and dont bear the full costs of their decision to drive. I guess you could call this the shame approach. The idea is to shift the conversation from you bike people want special rights that interfere with the us regular people to you car people ...

The Danny Haren trade actually is a great comp. While Haren is a tick below Peavy in talent and was under team control for 3 years instead of 5, you have to look at the production vs cost of those years they are under control. As of the Haren trade, he was under contract from 2008 at 4M, 2009 at 5.5M and 2010 at a 6.75M club option. Making for a total of 3 years of Haren at 16.25M. Peavys deal is 5/78M (assuming option is picked up). Peavys deal is very team friendly in year 1, but escalates significantly in 2010. Its still below market value, but by somewhere around 3-5M a year, whereas Haren is being compensated under market value by roughly 10M/year. If you add up all the years, Haren over 3 years and Peavy over 5 years, (even though Peavy is more years) are worth about the same under market value in total. Throw in that Haren (while not being the caliber of Peavy) was going to be paid roughly 5M as opposed to roughly 15M leaving more of a scarce resource ($) to be utilized elsewhere as ...

but it is not a heap, more like a queue.. Do you mead to say only allocations are performed? If this is the case, then the problem is much simpler.. You use two allocatable arrays to an initial size, have an index indicating next available index and use the size(RW or IW) of the array to indicate last available index. The (your) allocate checks remaining size (size(RW) - nextRWindex +1) against the allocation request, and when available, return the current nextRWindex, and advance nextRWindex by the allocation request. Should the size remaining be insufficient, you would then reallocate (larger than what is requested), then redo your allocation from unallocated space of the blob.. A potential gotcha would be if your application is multi-threaded, then you would have to be careful as to when you perform the allocations.. There are other less savory methods such as using allocate(), then using LOC() to obtain the location of a pseudo array ( say LOC(RW(1)) and the LOC(newAlloc(1))), compute the ...
Managers must also decide how to best use limited resources to accomplish organizational goals. A supermarket may lose sales because limited shelf space prevents stocking all available brands of soft drinks. A manufacturer may lose sales because limited machine hours or labor hours prevent filling all orders. Managers of for-profit organizations will likely find the problems of capacity constraints less troublesome than the problems of excess capacity; nonetheless, these problems are real.
