Introduction: One of the important requirements of health care systems in providing quality and safe services is developing appropriate strategies, effective implementation of these strategies, and controlling the results of the implementation. The design and implementation of a strategic control system ensures that the organization's performance in relation to the strategic management steps is correct. The purpose of this study was to identify and explore factors related to strategic control in the hospital systems.
Methods: This analytical study was conducted in 2016 on 425 experts from the Strategic Planning Committee of educational hospitals affiliated to Tehran and Iran University of Medical Sciences and experts in the field of strategic planning. Data were collected using a researcher-made questionnaire. Data analysis was performed based on exploratory factor analysis with SPSS 21 software. Data were collected using a researcher-made questionnaire. Data analysis was conducted based on exploratory factor analysis using the SPSS software version 21.
Results: Results of the exploratory factor analysis showed that factors related to strategic control in the hospital system were five independent factors including infrastructure and external support (variance percentage 13.3), vision clarification and strategy and conversion to action (variance percentage 12.2), sharing and establishing data and knowledge flow (variance percentage 10.3), planning and setting goals (variance percentage 9.2), and strategic learning and feedback (variance percentage 7.5).
Conclusion: The results of the study showed that the strategic control questionnaire used in this study could be useful as a tool for assessing the accuracy of designing, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of strategies in the hospital systems.
