Webinar will run approximately 90 minutes.
Measuring efficiency of the health systems and the productivity of the available resource use are increasingly the focus of governments, both nationally and at sub-national level. Policy practitioners and healthcare service delivery professionals are discerningly critical about how the efficiency is measured, and how validity and robustness of the results are established. This webinar presents revised guidelines about designing efficiency studies that provide values at the end-user level for different contexts / settings. We shall also discuss potential consequences of not following the guidelines that are presented in this webinar.
Featured speaker: Bruce HOLLINGSWORTH is a professor of Health Economics and he leads the Health Economics at the Lancaster University, UK. His research and international collaborative publications are primarily within the theme of efficiency measurement concerning the production of health and health care, social determinants of health, and the translation of research into practice.
