DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.3.001
Objectives : The aim of this study was to identify the relationship between Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) and quality of service (QoS) on pay satisfaction for employees at small-and medium-sized hospital that adopted an annual salary system. Methods : The subjects were 136 employees working at 2 Small-and Medium-sized Hospitals in Seoul and Daejeon. The data were collected from May 11 to May 22, 2015 using a structured questionnaire. For data analysis, descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation coefficient, t-test, ANOVA and Scheffe test were used with the SPSS 21 package. Results : The mean score for pay satisfaction perceived by the employees at small-and medium-sized Hospitals that adopted an annual salary system was 1.74. The mean score for OCB and QoS was 4.02 and 4.43, respectively. The pay satisfaction perceived by the employees at small-and medium-sized Hospitals that adopted an annual salary system were positively related to the OCB. Pay satisfaction was positively related to the QoS; however, it was not statistically significant. The OCB and QoS showed a significant difference in age, marital status, and education level. Conclusions : Small and Medium sized Hospitals have to develop an efficient pay management system which evaluates the CSFs and KPI of every department or staff member.

Shim, Gil-Ho ; Moon, Kyeong-Jun ; Lee, Kwang-Soo ;
The Korean Journal of Health Service Management, volume 9, issue 3, 2015, Pages 43~55
DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.3.043
Objectives : This study analyzed the managerial efficiency of hospitals and identified the productivity trends for three years. Methods : Data were collected from 44 tertiary hospitals and 32 university hospitals from 2009 to 2011. Efficiency scores and productivity trends were evaluated with the DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) method. The input variables were the numbers of beds, doctors, nurses, and health personnel, and the medical costs. The output variables were the numbers of outpatients, and inpatients, and the medical revenues. Along with the traditional input-oriented DEA analysis, the Malmquist Productivity Index(MPI) was calculated. Results : First, the mean values of the study variables showed gradual increases in all the variables for all the study years. Second, technical efficiency scores varied depending on the study year. Third, MPI decreased from 2009 to 2010 (MPI=0.986), and then increased from 2010 to 2011(MPI=1.011). The contributions of the Efficiency Change Index and Technical Change Index on the MPI varied depending on the study year. Conclusions : This study provides information to hospital managers about changes in hospital performances. External environments had more influence on hospital performances, and hospital managers will need to manage these influences from factors surrounding the hospitals.

Jung, Yong-Mo ; Ha, Au-Hyun ;
The Korean Journal of Health Service Management, volume 9, issue 3, 2015, Pages 57~67
DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.3.057
Objectives : This study has analyzed the relationship between DEA efficiency of costs-patient revenues, productivity per value added and management performance in mental hospitals. Methods : The relationship between DEA efficiency of costs-patient revenues, the productivity per value added and management performance were conducted with correlation analysis and logistic regression. Results : The DEA efficiency of costs-patient revenues had a significant causal relationship with the value added ratio to gross revenue indexing productivity per value added. On the other hand, it was revealed that the operating margin indexing management performance had a slightly significant causal relation with DEA efficiency of costs-patient revenues. Conclusions : The material costs should be focused on the management stability of mental hospitals, and known to the desirable management orientation for the higher efficiency of costs-patient revenues.

Lee, Gyu-Hee ; Oh, Chang-Seok ; Cho, Kyoung-Won ;
The Korean Journal of Health Service Management, volume 9, issue 3, 2015, Pages 69~79
DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.3.069
Objectives : This study was conducted to verify the influence organizational health has on customer orientation by hospital ownership. Methods : This survey was conducted on a public hospital, private hospital, and religious hospital, respectively, during March 2014 and a total of 210 questionnaires were used in the analysis. ANOVA and regression analysis were used to analyze the collected data. Results : The management environment factor of organizational health was statistically significant in the public hospital compared to the private hospital. The reliability factor of customer organization was statistically significant in the public hospital and religious hospital respectively compared to the private hospital. For reactivity, the religious hospital was statistically significant compared to private hospital. A positive influence was shown in the vitality factor at the public hospital, and community orientation at the private hospital, while both community orientation and career showed effects at the religious hospital. ICU had a negative influence on customer orientation at the private hospital. Conclusions : The reason vitality had a relatively more important effect on customer orientation in the public hospital was due that age group of 20~29 was the dominant socio-demographic factor. Furthermore, the influence of community orientation on customer orientation in the private hospital and religious hospital may be related to the nurses' career.

The Korean Journal of Health Service Management, volume 9, issue 3, 2015, Pages 81~93
DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.3.081
Objectives : The objective of this study was to examine preceding variables that affect the dual commitment of outsourced employees working at hospitals and to analyze the influence of these variables on job performance. Methods : Data were collected from 461 outsourced employees, working at 7 general hospitals, which had introduced the outsourcing system, using a structured, self-administered questionnaires. Frequency, validity/reliability, correlation and path analyses were done for data analysis. Results : The results of the path analyses showed that both commitment to the hiring company and commitment to the client company (hospital) had statistically significant positive effects on job performance. Additionally, when the 'single measurement' approach was used, dual commitment had a larger positive effect, compared with the 'parallel approach.' Among the preceding variables, 'satisfaction for the job itself' was found to be the most important variable affecting dual commitment and job performance. Conclusions : In conclusion, to enhance the job performance of outsourced employees, it is important for management to examine and improve the various factors related to job satisfaction. Additonally, for outsourced employees to have organizational commitments to the hiring and client companies simultaneously, management should emphasize a sense of unity and share organizational values.

Moon, Seon-Jeong ; Ku, In-Young ; Choi, Hwa-Young ; Ka, Kyung-Hwan ;
The Korean Journal of Health Service Management, volume 9, issue 3, 2015, Pages 159~174
DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.3.159
Objectives : A survey was conducted to investigate oral health belief and education awareness of oral health of workers in the workplace and to obtain the basic data necessary to promote their oral health and design an oral health education program. Methods : This study conducted a self-administered survey. Results : The following conclusion was made. For oral health beliefs based on the type of work that the workers did, workers in production and technical services had more benefits than those in other fields(security, guard, etc.), and workers on night duty had more oral health hygiene problems than that of regular day-time workers. The longer the period of service was, the more sensitive and serious the workers were and the less beneficial the work was; workers working for eight hours or less had higher levels of importance than those working for ten hours. They were well aware of the need for oral health education but were less aware of the need for an oral health room. Conclusions : It is necessary to emphasize oral health beliefs when developing an oral health education program that promotes oral health for workers in the workplace. If an oral health education program attempts to reflect the concerns of workers in the workplace and provides preferred contents and methods on oral health education, the program is expected to promote the active and positive participation of the workers.

DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2015.9.3.187
Objectives : This study was conducted to examine social factors associated with problematic drinking among middle- and older-aged men in South Korea. Methods : The data were collected from the baseline survey of the Korean Longitudinal Study of Aging, and the sample consisted of 3,631 men between 45 and 64 years of age and 1,173 men aged 65 or older. This study employed variables identifying various socioeconomic features, social ties, and health-related factors. Logistic regressions were used for the data analysis. Results : Middle-aged men having frequent social relationship with close persons were significantly more likely to be problematic drinkers than those having less frequent social relationships with close persons. Lower education, unemployment, smoking, and depression were associated with problematic drinking only among middle-aged men. Conclusions : We suggest that health professionals develop specific intervention strategies that could lead to more moderate alcohol habits and better health in middle aged Korean men who are actively engaged in social networks. In addition, health professionals need to focus more on the unemployed, lower educated, depressed, and smoking groups for early detection of problematic drinking among middle-aged Korean men.
