    El objetivo principal de esta investigación es el de realizar un estudio de la eficiencia en los hospitales del Sistema Nacional de Salud por Comunidad Autónoma (CCAA). El estudio se realiza sobre los hospitales gestionados por cada Servicio de Salud Autonómico con más de 500 camas sobre la actividad desarrollada a lo largo del año 2008, a través del modelo DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis). Se ha trabajado con cinco casos de estudio, identificando cuatro grupos según el indicador de eficiencia, sin que los resultados difieran tanto desde la perspectiva input como output, con y sin el método de supereficiencia. Con este estudio se ha fijado la posición de cada Comunidad Autónoma sobre la frontera de eficiencia, identificando y creando un ranking de aquellas Comunidades Autónomas que han gestionado más eficientemente sus recursos aplicando las mejores prácticas. The main objective of this research is to carry out a study of efficiency in CCAA hospitals of NHS (National Health System). This study was performed on the hospitals managed by each regional Health Service with more than 500 beds throughout 2008 activity, with DEA model (Data Envelopment Analysis). We have worked with five different cases and we have identified four groups according to the efficiency indicator. The results show a minimum difference from both an input and an output point of view, with and without superefficiency method. This study has established the position of each CCAA on the efficient frontier, identifying and setting up a ranking of those CCAA that have manage more efficiently its resources by applying best practices. Keywords: efficiency; data envelopment analysis; health management; benchmarking; hospital activity.
