Abstract

The building of complex models of socio-economic development especially on the regional level, requires the knowledge of important relations and feedbacks between the health status of a population and the indices describing welfare standards such as environmental conditions, income level, and public services. In developing a family of submodels of national health care systems for use by health service planners, it is important to consider the environmental impact on health status as well, since the environment forms one of the most significant external subsystems influencing health care. Needless to say, more effort is needed in modeling the links between health care systems and the national economy.

In this paper, a set of basic health standard relationships are postulated. Through this the consequences of resource allocation policies can be determined, thus aiding the decisionmaking process. Proposed formulae are estimated on Polish statistical data using cross-sectional analysis, and a critical evaluation of the significance of these relationships is given.
