Modelling Cooperation in a Dynamic Healthcare System

09/06/2019 ∙ by Zainab Alalawi, et al. ∙ Teesside University 0

Our research is concerned with studying behavioural changes within a dynamic system, i.e. health care, and their effects on the decision-making process. Evolutionary Game theory is applied to investigate the most probable strategy(ies) adopted by individuals in a finite population based on the interactions among them with an eye to modelling behaviour using the following metrics: cost of investment, cost of management, cost of treatment, reputation benefit for the provider(s), and the gained health benefit for the patient.
