Abstract

Objective To determine the effectiveness of the Pugh multi-criteria method for the selection of biomedical technologies in the process of new acquisitions.
Materials and Methods A study of multi-criteria decision-making methods was conducted. The method selected was the"Datum" or Pugh method. Calculation and characterization of the sample size of the experts who would participate in the trial was performed. A sample of 23 experts was obtained. The electrocardiography technology selection exercise was performed using the selected decision making method.
Results Of the 46 tests carried out, the model most commonly used as a reference was the model coded as"3". The model that was selected as the"best choice" was the"5" model or equipment.
Conclusions. The Pugh method proved to be effective for decision making when selecting biomedical technologies, as in 87 % of cases the same reference model was always obtained as the optimal one.
