Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to indicate a possible direction of future activities at IIASA with respect to modeling the economic mechanisms in health care provision. In Section 1, it is argued that both in centrally planned economies and in market oriented economies, the decision makers at the national and regional level are faced with uncertainty about the reactions to their policies at the level of treatment of the patients. Therefore, modeling behaviour at this decision level is most useful. The main decision maker at this level is the physician. In Section 2, a brief survey of research activities concerned with modeling physician behaviour is presented, and Sections 3 and 4 focus on possible research activities at IIASA.
