Background and Objective: Regarding various benefits of implementing the Public Private Partnership (PPP) in hospitals, this study was conducted to compare the main performance indicators of Hasheminejad hospital before and after implementing PPP model.
Materials and Methods: This study was analytical, comparative, and cross-sectional research that conducted in 2015. Status performance indicators of Hasheminejad hospital were collected based on checklist before and after PPP implementation. Data were analyzed applying t-test in SPSS21 at a significant level of 0.05.
Results: Changes in all of the indicators studied before and after the implementation of the PPP pattern were statistically significant (p<0.05). Percent of bed occupation changed from 76.18 to 81.36, average length of stay from 5.1 to 4.46, and bed circulating rate from 4.62 to 5.72. Additionally, admission rates, clinic referrals, emergency referrals, and number of surgeries significantly increased after PPP implementation.
Conclusion: There are dramatic variations in the status of the studied indicators after the implementation of the PPP in hospital. It is suggested that health system managers and policy makers provide the necessary conditions to use this approach in public hospitals across the country.
