Quality, Costs, and Efficiency In principle, data on inputs, costs, and outputs should be provided by a well-functioning management information system.

On this basis, some surveys have focused explicitly on the analysis of costs and efficiency, often with the aim of eliciting insights into the differences between government and private providers (for example, see Bitran Dicowsky 1995; Wouters 1993). Facility surveys have also been used to examine the ways other purchasing reforms have affected provider performance.

However, although similar research might clearly benefit from health facility surveys, such surveys are typically not designed to address these issues. Which Data to Collect and How to Collect Them Health facility surveys have served widely differing purposes.
