An Inventory of Health Manpower Models: Volume II.
Doyle, Timothy C.; Enberg, Janice R.
Volume Two of the report presents an inventory of 56 models directly or peripherally related to health manpower supply and requirements problems. The report is organized into four main sections: (1) a description of the contents of the inventory, methods used in its development, model inventory descriptors, and model selection rationale; (2) a discussion of the health manpower model classification scheme used to categorize the models; (3) the inventory itself; (4) four indexes to assist in locating individual models: name of developer, data source, health manpower model bibliography, and input and output variables for each model category. Each description includes purpose and sponsor, scope and subject, model assumptions, model structure, inputs and outputs, computer characteristics, and modeling techniques employed. The majority of the models were found to have been developed using some form of regression analysis. The remaining models are a mixture of organization models or descriptive models. Classification by subject area indicates over one-half concerned with health care delivery organizations, less than one half with health manpower resources and consumer service behavior. Of the manpower models the majority are concerned with physicians or nurses. (Author/SA)
