Background: Hospital indicators are among the most important factors in hospital performance. The aim of this study was to measure the performance of hospitals covered by Iran University of Medical Sciences and to compare them with the national indicators.
Methods: In the present cross-sectional descriptive study, performance indicators of all hospitals covered by Iran University of Medical Sciences were compared descriptively in 2018-2019. Data were collected from the Medical Record of treatment deputy of Iran University of Medical Sciences. The collected information was analyzed using descriptive tools, Excel software, and the Ministry of Health and Medical Education standard index tables.
Results: The average bed occupancy index, average hospital stay index, and patient registration ratio per bed were 69.17, 4.30, and 75.18 in the hospitals covered by Iran University of Medical Sciences in 2018-2019, respectively. These rates show average, undesirable, and desirable status by national standards, respectively.
Conclusion: Given that the average length of stay indicator was at an inappropriate level in this study, hospital authorities are recommended to take the necessary measures to identify the reasons and improve the hospital performance in this regard.
