报告摘要：Game theory is increasingly being recognized as an indispensable tool for modeling management problems in many healthcare settings, where individual preferences and utilities are important determinant in constructing management solutions with high resource utilization and patient satisfaction. The past decade has seen considerable interest in applying game theoretic models to the management of healthcare systems in the literature. In this talk, I will discuss the application of game theoretic models to various healthcare management problems. I focus on three decision making settings: 1) interactions between main stakeholders of healthcare systems including doctors, patients, donors, private and public healthcare institutions; 2) operations management which is mainly concerned with decentralized healthcare resources allocation and scheduling; 3) distributed decision making supported by advanced healthcare technologies, such as internet of things. I will also present my ongoing industry sponsored research projects and discuss potential research directions exploring the interface between game theory and healthcare management.
