English Abstract

Since The Taipei City Hospital confronted hardship in medical environment and financial difficulty that the Global Budgeting which reduces the insurance fees and reduction of budgets , to improve this predicaments, the strategy of integration was carry out by Taipei City Hospital in 2005. The effect of integration that was the public pay attention to. We use financial ratios and Malmquist Productivity Change Index to examine the effect after the integration of Taipei City Hospital, furthermore, we use financial ratios to compare the results with other hospital which in the same geographic distribution. We also use Malmquist to compute Total factor productivity for the other three hospitals which changed. In addition, we use Development Envelopment Analysis to evaluate the managerial performance with the other competitive hospital. We find the financial performance of The Taipei City Hospital was worse and we find after integration, the financial performance was worse than the other hospitals, too. But after integration for a while, the financial performance for The Taipei City Hospital has been stably growth. The computation of Malmquist suggests that the total factor productivity for The Taipei City Hospital is better than before. And we use Development Envelopment Analysis to find The Taipei City Hospital is relatively efficiency.
