Definitions for "Resource allocation"
The process of allocating the resources of the organisation selectively between competing strategies according to their merit.
Scarcity affects the exchange of all kinds of goods, including medically relevant items or services such as blood, organs, medicines, and costly and labor-intensive surgical procedures. Decisions about which patients or condition ought to receive such benefits remain notoriously difficult, despite their being an almost daily occurrence in some locales. Differences of principle about how to distribute scarce medical resources complicate matters further: should the most pressing cases be given priority, or those with the greatest chance of success? Should calculations of "expected benefit" include such things as the patients' respective capacities to contribute to society? Should scarce resources be denied to those who contracted their conditions through voluntary exposure to known risk factors? See also: quality-of-life [See Case Studies related to Resource Allocation
