ESRI Seminar "Technical Efficiency and Total Factor Productivity Growth of Hospitals in Ireland"
Venue: ESRI Building, 4 Burlington Road, Dublin 4.
Date: 18/11/2004Speaker: Brenda Gannon
In this paper, two methodologies - Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA), are used to measure technical efficiency of acute public hospitals in Ireland between 1992 and 2000. Although, previous research has used DEA extensively, the more recent panel model approach to estimating the stochastic frontier has not been employed to the same extent. This is the first time an application of this type has been performed on input and output data from Irish hospitals. Internationally, the results contribute to the expanding literature of comparisons between DEA and SFA applications.
