DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.1.001
This study intended to measures for high performance and for identifying competitive advantages by examining the relation between the competence and performance of the first special hospitals for which the law has now been in effect for 3 years. Furthermore, the members of special hospitals were also surveyed on measures to improve the special hospital system in order to activate it. A total of 80 special hospitals participated in this study, and 171 people responded to a survey on the special hospital system. According to the results of the multiple regression analysis the relation between the competence and performance after establishing a hypothesis that special hospital competence would have an effect on organizational performance, member competence and hospital business management competence significantly had a positive (+) effect on internal performance, and marketing management competence significantly had a positive (+) effect on external performance, which partially supported this research hypothesis. Moreover, according to the results of survey on the special hospital system, the policy thought to be the most important by special hospitals was reasonable fee system reform, followed by granting incentives.

Ha, Oh-Hyun ; Jeong, Woo-Sik ; Jung, Yong-Mo ;
The Korean Journal of Health Service Management, volume 9, issue 1, 2015, Pages 17~29
DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.1.017
This study, an examination of the plan for effective resource management for national university hospitals, was performed to determine the relationship between the effectiveness of patient output by considering input personnel using the DEA model and Management Performance, in which 4 years of data from 12 national university hospitals were analyzed. Among the components of the effectiveness, utilizing properly imput components from the application of VRS(Variable Returns to Scale), the Management Performance of national university hospitals was found to be affirmatively influenced by PTE(Pure Technical Efficiency). Regarding the Management Performance of national university hospitals in their attempts to establish a plan for effective human resource management, the management of patient numbers on the basis of calculation level with input is more recommendable than the controlling of personnel input using patient numbers. Thus, the establishment of a strategy plan for the proper allocation of administrative staff and sickbeds, considering the variation of patient numbers, is suggested.
Effect of Creative Behavior on Passion about One's Job for Hospital Administrative Staff Members
Lim, Jung-Do ; Jeong, Hong-Gil ;
The Korean Journal of Health Service Management, volume 9, issue 1, 2015, Pages 31~39
DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.1.031
This study was undertaken to investigate the effectiveness of a hospital organization targeting both hospital administrative staff members and internal/external customers under a rapidly changing organizational environment, where the effect of creative behavior on passion about one's job was controlled with the participation of 55 people from two larger general hospitals, with 103 people from four general hospitals, with 51 people from eight regular hospitals. Thus, data from a total 209 people were collected. The creative behavior of hospital administrative staff members working for general hospitals and larger general hospitals significantly affected job engagement, showing that 'Relevant knowledge, maintaining status, and application appetite' were higher than the scores of 'new knowledge pursuit activities.' However, a weaker relationship between creative behavior and job engagement was found in medical institutions than for hospitals.

Kim, Chae-Bong ; Jung, Tae-Young ; Han, Seoung-Min ;
The Korean Journal of Health Service Management, volume 9, issue 1, 2015, Pages 41~55
DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.1.041
Working the night-shift and long working hours may be linked to insomnia. The purpose of this study is to determine the association between night-shift work and long working-hours with regard to subjective insomnia in Korean workers. This study was based on the Third Korean Working Condition Survey (KWCS) conducted on workers in 2011. The total number of individuals included in the analysis was 34,708 workers. Adjusted odd ratios showed statistically effective associations to insomnia. For night-shift work, the results were 2.71 (1.53 - 4.82) for night shift work by experts and managers, 2.95 (2.11 - 4.11) for night-shift work by officers, and 3.90 (2.05 - 7.42) for night-shift work by engineers compared with day duty. For long working hours, the scores were 2.43 (1.68-3.51) for >52 working hours by officers, 1.72 (1.15 - 2.58) for those in sales and service compared to
working hours. We suggest the need for Korean workers to target specific groups when creating policies related to reasonable environmental conditions.

Park, Eun-Ha ; Hwang, Byung-Deog ;
The Korean Journal of Health Service Management, volume 9, issue 1, 2015, Pages 57~66
DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.1.057
This study was performed to provide efficient fund managing plans for hospitals by looking into the management of medical fees for accident insurance. Car insurance, industrial accident insurance and seamen's insurance at a general hospital which is located in Busan during 29 months from January 1, 2009 to May 31, 2011 were assessed. The research data is the total number of 6,293 cases, including 2,251 car insurance cases, 2,350 industrial accident insurance cases, and 1,692 seamen's insurance cases. There were some significant differences found, as car insurance and seamen's insurance, including accident insurance, are types of insurance for which employers or traffic accidents offenders shall be the final premium payer. In addition, medical examination fees or premium payers are applied under their respective related laws. The findings suggest that it is necessary for managers of hospitals to prepare differentiated management schemes based on the characteristics of each insurer and schemes to ensure proper recovery strategies of uncollected medical account receivables.

Kang, Hyun-Kyung ;
The Korean Journal of Health Service Management, volume 9, issue 1, 2015, Pages 67~79
DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.1.067
The aim of this descriptive cross-sectional study was determine the effect of critical thinking and clinical decision-making on ethical dilemmas. A survey of dental hygienists residing in Busan and South Gyeongsang, Korea was conducted using convenience sampling between September and December, 2013. A total of 153 responses were used in the final analysis. Data analysis and structural equation modeling were performed with IBM SPSS Statistics(version 21.0) and AMOS(version 18.0) programs. A negative(-) correlation coefficient(-0.37) was observed between critical thinking and ethical dilemmas on statistical analysis, i.e., higher critical thinking led to less ethical dilemmas(p=0.024, CR=-2.264). The values from the structural equation model were
df=66, GFI=0.919, AGFI=0.871, and RMSEA=0.057. This study proposed a theoretical model in which critical thinking, ethical values, and decision-making skills should be firmly established to effectively respond to specific situations, such as ethical dilemmas, and that greater tendencies for critical thinking led to less ethical dilemmas, thereby demonstrating a negative(-) correlation between the two parameters.

Hwang, Byung-Deog ; Choi, Ryoung ;
The Korean Journal of Health Service Management, volume 9, issue 1, 2015, Pages 81~93
DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.1.081
This study investigated the prevalence of unmet needs for health care among Korean adults and related factors. Using data from the 2012 Korea Health Panel, 1,896 adults aged 65 and over and two age groups(Young-Old(66-74) and Old-Old(
)) were analyzed to identify these factors. Logistic regression analysis was used to examine the main factors associated with unmet medical needs. According to the results of this study, the factors influencing unmet medical needs with regard to economic factors were Subjective Health Status(young-old), Disability(young-old), Activity Limitation(young-old), Education Level(old) and Economic Activity(old). The factors influencing unmet medical needs were factors of attitude, information, and disease. factors were Disability(young-old), Activity Limitation(young-old), Education Level(old) and Economic Activity(old). Therefore, further research that investigates unmet needs depending on age group in the elderly would suggest helpful policy implications.

The aim of this study is to analyze the determinant factors of the personal relationships among university students. We collected data for 41 days, from 1 November to 10 December of, 2013. This study surveyed 221 university students at a university located in the metropolitan city of Busan. The findings were as follows. There were statistically significant differences in the relationships according to sex, smoking, drinking, and health status(p<0.05). Males showed this better than female. Smokers(drinkers) showed a greater difference than non-smokers(non-drinkers). Greater subjective health status was associated with more personal relationships. Students who managed their mental health and stress showed good personal relationships. From a multiple regression analysis, it was found that the determining factors as regards personal relationships were health status, current smoker, management of health, and gender health, all of which showed statistically significant differences(p<0.05). As a result, we suggest that we must provide information about health-promoting lifestyles at university to enhance personal relationships.
