Using the DEA Method Based on the Example of Analysing Polish Hospitals from the Mesoeconomic Perspective

Dariusz Porębski


In Poland, the issue of the situation of health service, hospitals in particular, is always relevant. Despite the fact that debates and conferences on this topic occupy a leading position on TV, the topic remains unsolved. Health service efficiency and its measurement are important subjects as they provide information on the efficiency of the activities taken in each unit, region, borough, borough union, county, sector, i.e. in the mesoeconomic environment. The article presents and verifies research results of several authors who were the first in Poland to measure the efficiency of hospitals from the mesoeconomic perspective using the DEA method, with the outlay-oriented CCR model applied. The aim of the article is also to draw attention to the issues related to using and interpreting DEA results. One of the first mesoeconomic studies, i.e. studies of three authors based on the Centre for Healthcare Information Systems (CSIOZ) data, was analysed. One has to bear in mind the fact that these were built around different criteria and covered the problematic period preceding the implementation of the 2011 act on medical entities and the 2017 act on hospital networks.
