Health care efficiency is a comparison of delivery system outputs, such as physician visits, relative value units, or health outcomes, with inputs like cost, time, or material. Efficiency can be reported then as a ratio of outputs to inputs or a comparison to optimal productivity using stochastic frontier analysis or data envelopment analysis.

Six Domains of Health Care Quality A handful of analytic frameworks for quality assessment have guided measure development initiatives in the public and private sectors. One of the most influential is the framework put forth by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), which includes the following six aims for the health care.

Patients and Consumers: Originally, health-care information systems were designed to be used by mainly physicians and administrative staff (Ball, ; Ball et al., ), but it was later passed on to be used by nurses.
