Executive Summary

Back Ground:

The purpose of this study was to reveal the factors that affect people’s choice of a hospital (Government or Private). We tried to reveal those factors due to which people think that the Private Hospitals are better than the Government Hospitals. For this purpose we tried to collect people opinion on a number of issues. We tried to find that what Private Hospitals do and what Government Hospitals are not doing.

Design and Method:

The design that we choose for collecting primary data is very widely used and is considered to be very effective. We choose the design of Survey and Questionnaire as the method of data collection. For this we made a questionnaire, which is attached to the end of this report. Two questionnaires were made one for males and females. In this we tried to judge a number of demographic variables and variables of interest. Through this we tried to find out the percentage of people’s opinion about certain issues concerning their choice of a hospital and then we asked them whether the Government or the Private hospitals has these thing in their opinion.

Results:

We have tried to generalize our study with respect to the two demographic variables that are Male and Female. As the whole society consists of Males and Females so by judging their opinion about different factors we can generalize our study. More over we have also studied some other demographic variables and the study can also be generalized on their bases but only up to the percentages that they have in the study. These variables are Age, Education, Employment, and Income.

We studied a sample of 200 respondents taken on the basis of simple random sampling. Out of these 100 were male and 100 were female. With the help of survey design we collected data, through a self administered questionnaire, about seventeen variables. These variables were considered important because of the exploratory field study that was conducted before the survey was taken into action.

The detail and the analysis of these variables are in the next section of the report but here we will present the affect of these variables (that was found in the study) on the factors affecting people’s choice about a hospital. The following table will present the end result of our research. This table is based on the average of the combined opinion of both male and female.

CONCLUSION

We have made a very extensive research and have come to this point that if the government hospital can control the variable (shown below) to some extent and can make the factors associated with these variables in the favor of public then they can be as popular as the Private Hospitals. The factors that the Government Hospitals should seriously improve are as under:

Cost of Treatment

The Government Hospitals are controlling these factors very effectively; they should emphasize to maintain it.

Administration

Administration is such a factor or variable that if the Government Hospital can improve this then they can control a lot of other factors and can manipulate them in their favor. Factors like Appointment System, Admission Procedure

Visiting hours, Quality of Service, Noisy and Crowded, Architecture (well furnished rooms), Irrelevant Tests, Doctors Harassment, Choice of Doctor

Care, Healthy Environment, Image and Reputation can be controlled by improving Administration. This single dimension can control all these

Recommendation in Choice

This one factor is uncontrollable by the Administration but if it improves other conditions then this will improve automatically.

Location

Location is also in the favor of Government Hospitals so they should always try to be in the convenient locations.
