We summarize results of several data envelopment analysis (DEA) studies to identify countries with the most efficient healthcare systems in terms of translating resources consumed into outputs produced. These analyses identify 27-65 countries on empirical performance frontiers based on six key dimensions of healthcare systems – clinical outcomes, health adjusted life years, access, equity, safety, and resources – using modified DEA methods for rationally constraining weights given to each… Expand
Data envelopment analysis models for identifying and benchmarking the best healthcare processes
We illustrate the use of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) models within process improvement work for identifying and benchmarking the best healthcare systems, in terms of most efficiently producingExpand
Data Envelopment Estimates for the Most Efficient National Healthcare Systems Given Uncertain Proportional Rate Inputs
Frequently data envelopment analysis is conducted on empirical data that are either proportions, estimated, or both. When proportional rates are estimated either from a sample of data or by expertExpand
