Introduction: Hospital is most costly in health care system. Provisions of optimal service require that hospital administrators identify hospital efficient performance based on relevant indicator. This study used the Pabon Lasso Analysis to access the efficiency of KMC and to identify strategies toward an improving efficiency KMC.
Methods: This cross-sectional descriptive study involved all the four years performance of KMC Hospital. Data on Average Length Of Stay (ALOS), Bed Occupancy Rate (BOR) and Bed Turn Over (BTO). Data collected from 2011-2014 based on medical record.
Result: The overall average length of stay and bed turn over represents a satisfactory level of efficiency. ALOS 2-3 days and BTO 42-47 times. KMC hospital located in Zone II because BOR only 28-31%. This study represents good satisfactory level of efficiency KMC demonstrated, short stay, high turnover but low occupancy.
Discussion: This study showed the KMC hospital has generally high performance as indicated by Pabon Lasso Analysis. The administrator should find a strategy for measuring bed occupation rate for increasing hospital efficiency.
