Il presente lavoro intende in prima battuta analizzare l'efficienza dei sistemi sanitari regionali sulla base della qualità percepita dai pazienti. Quest'ultima è stata calcolata sulla mobilità interregionale: flusso dei pazienti extra-regione (immigrati o mobilità positiva) confrontato con il flusso di quelli della regione stessa che escono per andare a farsi curare in un'altra (emigrati o mobilità passiva). Si ipotizza infatti che le persone si spostino dove percepiscono che la qualità sia migliore tenendo in considerazione la possibile influenza della rete sociale. Dopo aver ottenuto uno score di efficienza per ogni sistema sanitario regionale attraverso la metodologia della Data Envelopment Analysis è stato effettuato uno studio econometrico per verificare un'ulteriore ipotesi: può l'efficienza sanitaria regionale, così come concepita in questo lavoro, essere influenzata dal peso del settore pubblico? I risultati ottenuti suggeriscono che effettivamente il processo di privatizzazione della sanità regionale non porta a miglioramenti nel livello di qualità percepita dai pazienti.
