Abstract

Game theory has the wide application to medical consultation and is helpful is deriving meaningful results. It provides the solution to the situations involving decision making in consultation practice and also estimates that how the doctor-patient interaction approach encourages cooperation & quality of care. In this paper, to study a two-way interaction procedure among the doctor and the patient, three different game-theoretic approaches like Prisoner’s Dilemma Game (PDG), Assurance Game (AG), and Centipede Game (CG) are taken in to account. The framework also suggested that how an appropriate scheme can be adopted by combining these game-theoretical approaches.
