Abstract

The dataset contains 1042 records obtained from inpatients at hospitals in the northern region of Vietnam. The survey process lasted 20 months from August 2014 to March 2016, and yielded a comprehensive set of records of inpatients’ financial situations, healthcare, and health insurance information, as well as their perspectives on treatment service in the hospitals. Five articles were published based on the smaller subsets. This data article introduces the full dataset for the first time and suggests a new Bayesian statistics approach for data analysis. The full dataset is expected to contribute new data for health economic researchers and new grounded scientific results for policymakers. View Full-Text
