Download (630kB) | Preview
Stress tests of financial institutions are becoming more common in the midst of a global recession and unpredictable future economic growth. We believe that apart from banks, stress tests can be conducted on hospitals as well and will have their merit. The proposed methodology for risk assessment in hospitals is only one of many possible solutions and has already been tested on the field. We demonstrate the results from such testing. Consequently, we propose the introduction of routine stress testing in the hospital care sector.
