This study aims to evaluate the efficiency of the Indian state’s health care systems in increasing the recovery rate of the Corona virus by using data envelopment analysis.
Methodology: The Data envelopment analysis (Output Oriented CRS Model) has been applied to evaluate the efficiency scores of Indian states concerning the recovery rate of people affected by COVID -19. The tobit regression model is used to find the efficiency drivers. The required corona data has been collected during the period of time Feb 2019 - May 2020 from the government official websites like Worldometer, MoHFW, Corona Tracker etc,.
Findings: The efficient states were found along with the factor that increases the state’s efficiency in increasing the recovery rate. The study reveals that out of 36 State/UT, only 5 State/UT were efficient in increasing the recovery rate. In addition the study found that there is an input slack in the number of hospitals for inefficient states/UTs.
