Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Social accounting, a different perspective when analysing public spending efficiency

(University of the Basque Country ) A UPV/EHU's research group has shown that it is possible to express in terms of money the social value generated by a hospital. It has calculated the social added value index of a hospital for the first time taking the Osakidetza [Basque Autonomous Community Public Health Service] Santa Marina Hospital as the basis. This analysis provides the hospital with information for the purpose of implementing improvements and could be important when it comes to drawing comparisons with other hospitals.
