Issue № 25 | 2016 (3)

Abstract

Multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA) is the mathematical approach that allows to take into account several factors when making difficult decisions. The article presents the results of a pilot application of MCDA for rare diseases and orphan drugs. Comparison of two methods (direct weighting and swing weighting) for assessing the importance of the criteria was conducted. The advantage of the second approach was shown.
