Cylus, Jonathan and Dickensheets, Bridget A. (2007) Hospital multifactor productivity: a presentation and analysis of two methodologies. Health care financing review, 29 (2). pp. 49-64.
In response to recent discussions regarding the ability of hospitals to achieve gains in productivity, we present two methodologies that attempt to measure multifactor productivity (MFP) in the hospital sector. We analyze each method and conclude that the inconsistencies in their outcomes make it difficult to estimate a precise level of MFP that hospitals have historically achieved.
