Innovative Procedures : The Key Factor for Hospital Performance
The role of innovative procedures in the mortality gap between public and for-profit hospitals isinvestigated using a French exhaustive administrative dataset on patients admitted for heartattack. The more intensive use of innovative procedures by for-profit hospitals contributes largelyto explaining the mortality gap. Public hospitals are found to perform better than for-profithospitals when controlling for both the use of innovative procedures and patients' characteristics.
