Abstract

Health Care Systems manage to balance competing demands for care with limited supplies of resources. They achieve an equilibrium. This paper describes a resource allocation model that represents this equilibrium as the equalizing of pressures between different levels of treatment. A pilot version of the model is formulated, solved, and programmed; and an illustrative example is given. Work towards a more sophisticated model is proposed.
