Abstract: The activity of hospitals in many countries raises a lot of heated debate and controversy connected with inter alia insufficient public access to medical services, the allocation of funds, or efficiency in the production process. The present paper is an attempt to systematize tools to evaluate activities of these institutions. The review part is supplemented by an empirical research covering the years 2004-2012 on hospitals run in Poland where DEA method was used to analyse their technical efficiency. It may be also useful in checking how hospitals’ expenditures are used in the health service provision and how they affect the hospital activity.
