Distribution of the relative efficiency of major metropolitan, large metropolitan and major regional public hospitals using Comparable Cost of Care and Cost per NWAU, 2011–12

An infographic image showing the distribution of the relative efficiency using Comparable Cost of Care and Cost per NWAU, 2011-12. The data shown in this infographic can be found in Appendix 2.

* The NWAU has been calculated using the National Efficient Price Determination 2014–15.

The line of best fit has been calculated using all hospital results where Cost per NWAU and Comparable Cost of Care are available. Results for hospitals with less than eight hospitals in a peer group for both measures are not shown on the graph.
