Effective and efficient delivery of healthcare services requires comprehensive collaboration and coordination between healthcare entities and their complex inter-reliant activities. This inter-relation and coordination lead to different networks among diverse healthcare stakeholders. It is important to understand the varied dynamics of these networks to measure the efficiency of healthcare delivery services. To date, however, a work that systematically reviews these networks outlined in different studies is missing. This article provides a comprehensive summary of studies that have focused on networks and administrative health data. By summarizing different aspects including research objectives, key research questions, adopted methods, strengths and weaknesses, this research provides insights into the inherently complex and interlinked networks present in healthcare services. The outcome of this research is important to healthcare management and may guide further research in this area.
