  Title Hospital Ownership and Operating Efficiency: Evidence from Taiwan Type
  Year 2004 Publication European Journal of Operational Research Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 159 Issue 2 Pages 513-527  
  Keywords Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA ); Health care; Health services; Hospital ownership; National health insurance; Operating efficiency  
  Abstract This paper employs the non-parametric data envelopment analysis to document empirical evidence on the relationship between hospital ownership and operating efficiency using annual cross-sectional data on Taiwan hospitals over the period 1996-1997. Hospitals within the same category are compared on the basis of their relative efficiency. Conventional and data-envelopment-analysis-based test procedures are employed to test for efficiency differences between public and private hospitals. The statistical test results indicate that, in general, public hospitals are less efficient than private hospitals for both regional and district hospitals. Specifically, we provide evidence that private hospitals without intensive-care units outperform their public counterparts.
