In the process of national health care system model elaboration, the model for estimating resource requirements plays an important role. Resource needs are determined on the basis of estimates of population trends and morbidity rates, and a set of desired health care standards. For the creation of the morbidity estimation model, data from comprehensive studies carried out in the UK, Japan, and the USSR were used. The desired standards were taken from the practice of central planning now existing in the USSR. Using this model in an interactive regime, it is possible to test alternative planning strategies. Preliminary results of testing and running this model in various countries show that this computer model could be used in different developed countries for estimating resource requirements.
