Abstract

The paper presents research concerning the assessment of health system effectiveness. The aim of the study is the analysis of relationships between the number of health benefits generated in the health system and the health state of the population. We have built an econometric model describing the impact of selected services on Life Expectancy (LE) for women aged 40 +, 60 +, 80 + and 65 +. The results suggest a positive relationship between the number of medical consultations and health state (with the exception of the oldest women) and a negative relationship between the average length and number of hospitalizations and health state. Research based on data coming from 32 OECD countries.
