This paper investigates the influence of internal managerial patterns of Heath Care Authorities on the decision of users/patients to migrate towards different Health Care organizations to avail treatments. The efficiency and productivity issues are analyzed, considering the passive migration as a proxy for the inefficient service availed. Besides, the structure of operating costs for Health Care Authorities is investigated in order to assess the eventual relationship between managerial spending choices and success of medical centers compelling citizens’ needs. A strong correlation is found among variables in our model and some relevant dependence is tested between patients’ mobility behavior and their resident authorities’ efficiency in spending

The efficiency and productivity issues are analyzed, considering the passive migration as a proxy for the inefficient service availed. Besides, the structure of operating costs for Health Care Authorities is investigated in order to assess the eventual relationship between managerial spending choices and success of medical centers compelling citizens’ needs. A strong correlation is found among variables in our model and some relevant dependence is tested between patients’ mobility behavior and their resident authorities’ efficiency in spending
