In response to recent discussions regarding the ability of hospitals to achieve gains in productivity, we present two methodologies
that attempt to measure multifactor productivity (MFP) in the hospital sector. We analyze each method and conclude that the
inconsistencies in their outcomes make it difficult to estimate a precise level of MFP that hospitals have historically achieved.
