Background and Aim: In the field of health, due to the limited resources and sensitivity of the subject of treatment, performance evaluation gains more importance. The main objective of this research was to evaluate the performance of two hospitals in Torbat Heydarieh city based on the PABON LASSO model and to compare the performance indicators with national standards during 2014-2015.
Methods: This descriptive-analytical cross-sectional study was carried out in two of the city's Razi Medical Training and Social Security hospitals. The data was collected from the medical records unit of the relevant hospitals. SPSS19 and EXCEL software were used to analyze the data and plot the PABON LASSO chart. One-sample t-test was used for comparative comparisons.
Results: The average Bed Occupancy Rate, Bed Turnover Rate and Average Length of Stay in the study period were 73.83, 131.33times, and 2.3 days, respectively. In the first year of the study, the medical training hospital located in District 1 and the Social Security Hospital in District 3; and in the second year, the medical training hospital between District 3 and 4 and the Social Security Hospital in District 2 were studied.
Conclusion: The mean of bed turnover and average length of stay in the two hospitals was far better than the national standard. However, it is suggested that in order to increase the utilization of hospital resources and to prevent wastage of the same through improved efficiency and performance, important performance indicators of the hospitals should be continually extracted and compared with other hospitals.
