Abstract

The aim of presented research is to analyse the technical efficiency of health care systems in selected countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The following countries have been selected: Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, Slove-nia, Hungary. We’ve set the following hypotheses:(H1)the relative efficiency of health care systems in CEE countries improved during the analyzed period; (H2) differences in observed levels of relative efficiency shrunk during analyzed period. Both hypotheses have been proven– we have found, that the effectiveness of health care system not only improved, but we can observe lower differentiation of relative efficiency in CEE countries. We have applied CCR DEA model
