ABSTRACT

This study is to evaluate the managerial efficiency of public health center's programs and make a comparison with the dynamic analysis of health demand. This study measures changes of population, number of aged people, and regional income from the data collected from 2006 to 2010 in order to analyse the dynamic shifts in health demands. The study employs Data Envelopment Analysis to assess the efficiency evaluations from 23 public health centers in Gyeongbuk-Do. For Data Envelopment Analysis, the study selects manpower working for the public health centers as input elements and the performances of medical examination and treatment, oral hygiene, visiting health care, and education of health care as output elements. Based on the results of the efficiency evaluations, the study suggests implications to improve the managerial efficiency for public health centers.
