Using a point system in the management of waiting lists: the case of cataracts
AbstractIn the management of waiting lists, point systems could be a useful mechanism to establish priorities amongst patients. In this paper we explore the possibility of using Conjoint Analysis (CA) in order to implement a point system based on social preferences. We conducted an experiment for the specific case of cataract extraction. In spite of the pilot nature of the study the results seems to suggest that CA is a feasible method in order to estimate a point system.
