Evaluation of Healthcare Economics of OECD Countries: Multi-Objective Statistical Optimization Model

Abdulkadir AtalanCem Çağrı Dönmez

Healthcare systems comprise the most crucial factors affecting countries economically. In this study, the infrastructure and economic structure of healthcare systems belonging to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries are discussed to evaluate the healthcare expenditures (HE) and healthcare expenditures per capita (pcHE) of OECD members. We have identified factors related to healthcare economics and analyzed the significance ratios of these factors to calculate the feasible values of the factors affecting the healthcare systems in the OECD members by statistical optimization analysis. Within the feasible values obtained by using a multi-objective optimization model (MOOM) because of statistical analysis, the HE of OECD countries was minimized, and an improvement of 29.13% was achieved. The second objective function aimed to maximize the pcHE that was estimated to be at least $5,282.37 for the OECD members. Consequently, in countries that do not have a social healthcare system, it is perceived that HE amounts are excessive. The fundamental reason for this situation represents the healthcare sector’s perception as a business in those countries.

OECD Ülkelerine ait Sağlık Ekonomilerinin Değerlendirilmesi: Çok Amaçlı İstatistiksel Optimizasyon Modeli

Abdulkadir AtalanCem Çağrı Dönmez

Sağlık sistemleri, ülke ekonomilerini etkileyen en önemli faktörlerden birdir. Bu çalışmada, OECD üyelerinin sağlık harcamalarını (SH) ve kişi başına düşen sağlık harcamalarını (kbSH) değerlendirmek için Ekonomik İşbirliği ve Kalkınma Teşkilatı (OECD) ülkelerine ait sağlık sistemlerinin altyapısı ve ekonomik yapısı tartışılmıştır. İstatistiksel optimizasyon analizi ile OECD üyelerindeki sağlık sistemlerini etkileyen faktörlerin uygulanabilir değerlerini hesaplamak için sağlık ekonomisi ile ilgili faktörleri belirlenerek, bu faktörlerin önemlilik oranlarını analiz ettik. İstatistiksel analiz aracılığıyla çok amaçlı optimizasyon modeli (MOOM) kullanılarak elde edilen uygulanabilir değerler içerisinde OECD ülkelerinin SH’si minimize edilmiş ve % 29,13 oranında iyileşme sağlanmıştır. İkinci amaç fonksiyonu ise OECD üyeleri için kbSH’yi maksimize etmek amacıyla en az kbSH değeri 5.282,37 dolar olarak tahmin edilmiştir. Sonuç olarak sosyal sağlık sistemi olmayan ülkelerde SH miktarlarının aşırı olduğu algılanmaktadır. Bu durumun temel nedeni, sağlık sektörünün o ülkelerdeki bir işletme olarak algılanmaktadır.
