Abstract

Introduction: In order to measure the efficiency of hospitals, various approaches have been proposed, which among them the Pabon Laso model graphically evaluates the performance of hospitals. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of hospitals affiliated to Qazvin University of Medical Sciences three years before and after implementation of the Health Reform Plan. Method: This study was descriptive-analytic and evaluated the performance of 6 Public hospitals and 5 private hospitals of Qazvin University of Medical Sciences in the 3 years before (2011-2013) and 3 years after (2014-2016) the implementation of the Health Reform Plan with the Pabon Lasso model. In this model, three indicators (bed turnover, bed occupancy and average length of stay) were used simultaneously. Data was collected using a standard checklist. SPSS software was used to analyze the data. Results: The results showed that the average of three indicators in public hospitals (bed turnover, bed occupancy rate and hospital stay) has changed from 59.61 to 77.63, 61.13 to 75.75 and 4.96 to 5.15, respectively, and in private hospitals, respectively, from 109.33 to 92.81, 63.23 to 54.73, 2.3 to 2.2. Conclusion: In general, performance indicators of hospitals affiliated to Qazvin University of Medical Sciences are in a desirable condition regarding standards. However, with the implementation of the Health Reform Plan and the reduction of out of the pocket patients in public hospitals, they have increased the number of patients referred to these hospitals and their transfer to the fourth zone. Therefore, measures should be taken to use the appropriate strategies for optimal and efficient use of resources for proper management.
