Abstract

This paper describes the construction of a model of the Dutch health care sector. It discusses the behaviour of patients, general practitioners, medical specialists and hospital managers. It also analyses the various ways the actors interact, such as general practitioners supplying the services demanded by patients, specialists dispatching referrals made by general practitioners or hospital managers boosting output to match an increasing amount of specialist services. Numerical simulations illustrate the various mechanisms in the model.
