In this paper we will show how the patient list model in Ubøe & Lillestøl (2007) can be used to infer strength of preferences from patient list data. We prove that we can construct unique sets of preferences that replicates patient list data, and we also show how to approach cases where we only have partial information of the system. As an illustration we apply the new theory to some patient list data from the Norwegian patient list system in general practice.
