Abstract

Las listas de espera son el mecanismo habitual de racionamiento de la demanda en los sistemas nacionales de salud. Cuando no existe urgencia médica, el criterio habitualmente utilizado para su gestión es el tiempo de espera. Aspectos como la intensidad de los síntomas o las limitaciones sociales que la enfermedad le provoca al paciente no son tenidas en cuenta. En este artículo se propone la gestión de la listas de espera de prostatectomía a través de un sistema de puntos basado en las preferencias sociales. Los resultados muestran que tanto las variables clínicas como las variables sociales son importantes a la hora de priorizar pacientes que esperan esta intervención. Asimismo, se detectan algunas diferencias en las preferencias de los pacientes y la población general.
