A Bootstrap Interval Robust Data Envelopment Analysis for Estimate Efficiency and Ranking Hospitals

M. Rabbani; N. Heidari; H. Farrokhi Asl

Volume 3, Issue 2 , December 2016, , Pages 107-122

  Data envelopment analysis (DEA) is one of non-parametric methods for evaluating efficiency of each unit. Limited resources in healthcare economy is the main reason in measuring efficiency of hospitals. In this study, a bootstrap interval data envelopment analysis (BIRDEA) is proposed for measuring the ...  Read More
