Date of Pub
In this article, the author examines trends in determinants of total hospital facility revenues, expenses, and net profits
during the period 1977-89. Measures of change in transaction prices are developed, which enable an analysis of trends in real
hospital outputs and total factor productivity. The main source of hospital spending growth in excess of the gross national
product is identified as growth in hospital employee compensation.
