Abstract :

Decision-makers are often faced with complicated decision problems with intangible and conflicting criteria. Many methods are proposed to handle the inclusion of many and varied criteria that allow choosing the best alternative for a decision. The public health sector daily faces numerous complex situations that require the facilities provided by multicriteria methods. This research proposes a comparative analysis of multicriteria methods for the selection of health technologies. With this, it is proposed to check to what extent the selected MCDAs are capable of offering consistent results among themselves. Comparisons are made using the TOPSIS method and a modification of the PROMETHEE method, both in their neutrosophic versions, by using single-valued neutrosophic numbers. The results showed that both methods coincided in the order of preference given to each treatment. However, it is observed that the method based on PROMETHEE yields more detailed information on the elections' interiorities. The effectiveness of the methods used can be verified and their practical and feasible application in complex medical problems.
