Abstract
Objectives
The purpose of this study is to find a way to effectively introduce accreditation for ambulatory health care organization by identifying the physicians' attitude for accreditation and characteristics that affect thei r attitude.
Methods
A web survey was conducted from February 15 to March 4, 2011 for 183 physicians who work in ambulatory health care organizations throughout the nation. Self-reported questionnaire was used for this study. SPSS WIN(version 12.0) was utilized for statistical analysis.
Results
Physician's attitude towards accreditation for ambulatory health care organization was positive(25.7%), moderate(39.3%), and negative(35.0%). Clinics that practice as a group or which treat more patients per day showed more positive attitude(p<0.05). The result of ordinal regression analysis indicates the groups with daily patients over 100 showed 36.3 times more positive attitude than the one under 75(p<0.05).
Conclusion
The accreditation for ambulatory health care organization has not been throughly discussed yet. Many physicians did not have knowledge about accreditation. Clinics that see more patients per day had more positive attitude for accreditation. It indicates the cost may play important role in voluntary participation in accreditation.
