Revelation of Preferences in Patient List Data
() and Jostein Lillestøl
Abstract: In this paper we will show how the patient list model in
Ubøe & Lillestøl (2007) can be used to infer strength of preferences from
patient list data. We prove that we can construct unique sets of
preferences that replicates patient list data, and we also show how to
approach cases where we only have partial information of the system. As an
illustration we apply the new theory to some patient list data from the
Norwegian patient list system in general practice.
