Abstract

BACKGROUND: Today, hospitals need managers who, in addition to having the necessary skills for management and leadership, are accountable to stakeholders, especially the community. Accordingly, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the social accountability of managers of public and private hospitals in Tehran. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The present study is descriptive-analytical and cross-sectional and was performed on 155 managers of selected public and private hospitals in Tehran. The research tools included a demographic characteristic questionnaire and a researcher-made social accountability questionnaire for managers. Data analysis was performed using descriptive and inferential statistics in SPSS 22 software. RESULTS: The situation of social accountability in the managers of public hospitals was at a weak level and in the managers of private hospitals in Tehran was at a good level. In comparing the status of social accountability and its dimensions in the managers of public hospitals with the managers of private hospitals, the status of social accountability in the dimensions of human resource management, quality improvement, executive management, and overall social accountability were significantly different from each other (P <= 0.05). However, in terms of governance, the status of social accountability of public hospital managers was not significantly different from private hospitals (P >= 0.05). Overall, the results of social accountability in private hospitals were better than in public hospitals. CONCLUSION: The social response status of managers in private hospitals was better than public ones. Lack of attention of managers to social accountability affects the quality of other educational, health, and medical services. This fact raises the need for managers to pay more attention to the issue of social accountability.
