Measuring efficiency in Australian and New Zealand paediatric intensive care units

Straney, Lahn D; Alexander, Jan; Slater, Anthony; Clements, Archie


Purpose: To develop a measure of paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) efficiency and compare the efficiency of PICUs in Australia and New Zealand. Methods: Separate outcome prediction models for estimating clinical performance and resource usage were constructed using patient data from 20,742 admissions between 2005 and 2007.
