Ege Academic Review, 2017, vol. 17, issue 4, 493-504
In this paper, we estimate an aggregate demand model for German hospitals using various quality measures extracted from mandatory quality reports. In doing so, we adopt the Distance-Metric approach. The estimates suggest that demand in obstetrics field is responsive to some measures of clinical quality. Finally, the results indicate weak spillovers in hospital demand arising from the clinical quality of closer competitors.
