This paper discusses the possibilities of applying the dynamic linear programming (DLP) approach to different optimization problems of health care modeling. A basic manpower supply model is considered, as well as its modifications, including a three-level manpower planning model, a model of educational system development, and a model for improving professional skills. The other models described in this paper are connected with the planning of different disease control and prevention programs or with national health care system planning. The variety of problems that can be written in the DLP format, shows that this approach might be an efficient tool for the elaboration and implementation of optimal policies in health care systems.
