[eng] Induced demand and regulation of altruistic physicians Induction demand phenomena has usually been considered like a doctor's moral hazard behaviours. The first result of this paper is to reveal that these phenomena is a simple adverse selection problem. Thanks to the fact that health state is an argument of the doctor's utility, we build a mechanism where doctors have incentives to reveal the true illness of their patients. [fre] Les phénomènes de demande induite sont généralement interprétés comme des comportements de risque moral des médecins. Le premier apport de cet article est de révéler que ces phénomènes relèvent davantage d'un problème de sélection adverse que de risque moral. L'état de santé du patient étant un argument de la fonction d'utilité des médecins, nous utilisons cette caractéristique de la fonction objectif des médecins pour élaborer un mécanisme qui les incite à révéler la véritable pathologie de leurs patients.
