Description

Measuring Health Service Efficiency and Productivity

The National Health Service is at the centre of our national life, one of our most cherished institutions. It is also of profound economic importance – the third largest employer in the world and accounting for around a twelfth of UK Gross Domestic Product. But it is also an organisation under continuing pressure as it attempts to deal with growing demand in an ageing society at a time when public funding is not in free supply.

In principle, the key to squaring the circle of growing demand and finite funding and resources is increasing productivity. But measuring the output and productivity of non-market organisations, such as the NHS, which provide their outputs for free is not straightforward. Nor, however, as the 2005 report by the late Sir Tony Atkinson demonstrated, is the task impossible either.

In this important seminar, leading experts will discuss the challenges in measuring health service efficiency and productivity and the possible ways forward.

Organised jointly by the Royal Economic Society (RES), the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and the Royal Statistical Society (RSS), the speakers will be Professor Peter Smith (Imperial College) and Professor Nancy Devlin (Office of Health Economics, (OHE), Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) and City University). ONS will also present its latest work on measuring health productivity and efficiency.
