Description

Researchers have a growing concern about assessing sustainability performance in various industries, including healthcare. However, there is no consensus on evaluating the sustainability of healthcare systems, especially regarding the social pillar. Therefore, this paper aims to develop a conceptual and structured framework that can measure the level of social sustainability of healthcare systems. Using a novel approach SSP-COPRAS, based on The Complex Proportional Assessment method, the work offers new insight into the comprehensive assessment of core dimensions of social sustainability (equity, quality, responsiveness, financial coverage, adaptability) in healthcare systems. The proposed approach can also guide cross-national comparisons, supporting health policy leaders in decision-making. The research findings reveal that the most socially sustainable systems are those in Norway, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, and France. On the contrary, the most unsustainable systems are those located in central and eastern European countries (Poland, Hungary, Latvia).

SSP COPRAS Based Approach Towards Sustainability Assessment in Healthcare

Researchers have a growing concern about assessing sustainability performance in various industries, including healthcare.

Using a novel approach SSP-COPRAS, based on The Complex Proportional Assessment method, the work offers new insight into the comprehensive assessment of core dimensions of social sustainability (equity, quality, responsiveness, financial coverage, adaptability) in healthcare systems.
