Este trabajo aborda la eficiencia de los 31 hospitales p�blicos de Bogot�, utilizando informaci�n de producci�n e insumos de los hospitales en 1999. Mediante la aplicaci�n de t�cnicas DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) , se obtienen medidas de eficiencia, tanto t�cnicas como asignativas, usando funciones de producci�n multiproducto y uniproducto, respectivamente, con diferentes supuestos de rendimientos a escala. Para explicar sus determinantes, se utilizan modelos de regresi�n lineal con t�cnicas de componentes principales, con la inclusi�n de variables ex�genas que recogen aspectos de la estructura de ingresos y gastos de los hospitales, la estructura de mercado, la estructura laboral, la demanda de servicios y la localizaci�n geogr�fica. Los resultados sugieren que aproximadamente la mitad de los hospitales del distrito poseen ineficiencias de tipo t�cnico y la gran mayor�a afronta ineficiencias de tipo asignativo. Como posibles causas de tal situaci�n se encuentran la estructura sindical, de contrataci�n y de subsidios a la oferta
