Increasing responsibility of local authorities and increasing budget constraints raised interest in the implementation of socio-technical approaches for priority setting, such as PBMA and STAR. In this paper we compare these approaches in terms of techniques and decisional process used (phases, actors involved, length), providing examples of application in national and international contexts (Canada, UK and Tuscany). These approaches offer useful insights for the Italian healthcare sector on the improvement of the resource allocation process and the sharing and spreading of improvement initiatives, through an enhanced collaboration among decision makers, managers and professionals.

Keywords: Priority setting, decisionmaking, socio-technical approaches, professionals engagemen, PBMA, STAR.
