Introduction. D ata envelopment analysis (DEA) has become the dominant approach to efficiency measurement in health care and in many other sectors of the economy (Hollingsworth ). While the parametric approach is guided by economic theory, DEA is a data-driven approach. The location (and the shape) of the efficiency frontier is determined by the data, using the simple Author: Rowena Jacobs, Peter C.

Smith, Andrew Street. To improve efficiency in the health system we must first be able to measure it and must therefore ensure that our metrics are relevant and useful for policy-makers and managers.

In this book the authors explore the state of the art on efficiency measurement in health systems and international experts offer insights into the pitfalls and.

Measuring Efficiency in Health Care - by Rowena Jacobs June which was devoted to the determinants and measurement of health system efficiency (World Health Organization ). The report stimulated a wide-ranging international debate, Recommend this book.

Health care efficiency is a comparison of delivery system outputs, such as physician visits, relative value units, or health outcomes, with inputs like cost, time, or material.

Efficiency can be reported then as a ratio of outputs to inputs or a comparison to optimal productivity using stochastic frontier analysis or data envelopment alternative approach is to look at latency times.

David B. Evans, Director of the Department of Health Systems Financing (HFS), World Health Organization 'A book covering the mechanics and practice of efficiency measurement in health and health care is long overdue, with several hundred applications now published in this area/5(2).

In this, the final chapter, we comment on progress to date in efficiency measurement in health and health care, and suggest a research agenda for the future. Given the rapid growth in research in the area in the last ten years we summarize why efficiency measurement has gained in popularity, despite some criticisms of the efficiency measurement.
