The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the operational efficiency of China’s health institutions in 2019 and the impact of environmental factors on efficiency, so as to provide references for policy-making. Relevant data having been obtained from China Health Statistical Yearbook 2020 and China Statistical Yearbook 2020, the three-stage data envelopment analysis was adopted to eliminate environmental factors and random errors and to evaluate the efficiency of 31 health institutions in China. Three results are as follows: First, the technical efficiency, pure technical efficiency and scale efficiency of health institutions in China are 0.809, 0.931 and 0.871 respectively; second, the operational efficiency of central and eastern China is at the leading level in China while that of northwestern China falls behind, besides, northern China and northwestern China see an obvious imbalance of the operational efficiency; third, efficiency can be promoted by urban population density, total dependency ratio and financial allocation, while being hindered by regional GDP and case fatality rate. Finally, two conclusions were drawn: Environmental factors have an obvious effect on most areas; furthermore, a widespread waste of resource investment and the blind expansion of scale in medical institutions have existed in various regions. It is suggested that all regions should be adjusted according to local conditions after accurate analysis and scientific research and judgment to improve the operational efficiency.
