The Role of Control in the Effective Hospital Management


The objective of the present study was to investigate the opinion of the managers working in the health system concerning their attitude towards the operations of control within the system and the impact of these operations on the activity of the health-care institutions.

Materials and Methods: From October 2016 till January 2017 using an anonymous questionnaire we studied the opinion of 407 medical doctors, medical and healthcare specialists working in various types of healthcare institutions for hospital care in Sofia and the countryside. Results: Only 1/5 of the respondents shared the opinion that the adequate control resulted in quality improvement of the provided medical caregiving, one in four (25,8%) believed that the control could raise the responsibilities of the officials with managerial titles; one in three (34,2%) shared the opinion it improved the responsibilities of the executives.

Conclusion: The new operational terms and conditions implemented in the health insurance system do not result in improving the work quality in the hospital, which allows the conclusion that by changing only the healthcare funding the desired positive changes could not be attained. The organization, management and provision of medical care should be generally revised.
