Part of the International Series in Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 120)

Monitoring performance over time is essential in health care organizations. The Malmquist index is a method which provides an opportunity to compare the health care facility performance from one period to another. Such a tool was suggested first by Malmquist (1953), then developed as a productivity index by Caves, Christensen and Diewert (1982), and then further developed by Fare, Grosskopf and Lowell (1994) as the Malmquist-DEA performance measure.
