An Analysis of Health Manpower Models: Volume I.
Bonder, Seth; And Others
Objectives of the project were to identify and describe problem areas and policy issues confronting health manpower planning agencies at all levels, compile an inventory of models and evaluate their usefulness, and to evaluate the potential usefulness of two models (developed under contract to the Bureau of Health Resources Development) designed to project future health manpower requirements. Volume One of the report provides an overview of the health manpower analysis areas discussed in relation to the demand for and supply of health manpower services. The characteristics of 56 models (described in detail in Volume Two) are outlined by way of an overview and a discussion of their applicability to health manpower analysis problems. A detailed description and evaluation of the two large scale models follows (the Preliminary Operational Human Resources Research Center Microsimulation Model and the Simulation of Hospital Utilization and Health Manpower Requirements Model). The lengthy analysis is concluded with a presentation of 14 major conclusions based on the results of the study. Three principal recommendations are outlined. (SA)
