Abstract

How to allocate a hospital's finite resources to health care is an extremely important problem for hospital management. This paper shows what kind of business strategies a given hospital should consider, and present a model to support such decision making. From the model, a hospital can decide how much to emphasize different tasks in order to set a given direction for the future. We used nonlinear discriminant functions to derive a decision support model, based on findings from 831 hospital directors. This model provides a probabilistic basis for deciding how much a given hospital should emphasize any of a number of different strategies.
