Benefit efficient statistical distributions on patient lists
() and Jostein Lillestøl
Abstract: In this paper we consider statistical distributions of
different types of patients on the patient lists of doctors. In our
framework different types of patients have different preferences regarding
their preferred choice of doctor. Assuming that the system is benefit
efficient in the sense that distributions with larger total utility have
higher probability, we can construct unique probability measures describing
the statistical distribution of the different types of patients.
