Eliciting Patients' Revealed Preferences: An Inverse Markov Decision Process Approach
. Direct approaches, which involve asking patients various abstract questions, have significant drawbacks. We propose a new approach that infers patient preferences based on observed decisions via inverse optimization techniques. We illustrate our methods on the timing of a living-donor liver transplant. Key words: Markov decision processes; health care; inverse optimization; quality-adjusted life years History: Received on March 22, 2010. Accepted on July 13, 2010, after 2 revisions.
