Materials and Methods: The data was gathered using related keywords in databases such as IranMedex, MagIran, IranDoc, Medlib, SID, PubMed, Google Scholar, Elsevier, and Scopus. The articles were searched during 2001 to 2015. Inclusion criteria were determined as articles published in Persian and English, Pointing at least one of three criteria Pabon Lasso model in Iran and access to full-text articles. Exclusion criteria were articles other than hospital performance assessment, and articles which presented as conferences event, case reports, letters to the editor and educational articles. Meta-analysis method was used for calculating Pabon Lasso indices. CMA: 2(Comprehensive Meta-Analysis) was utilized.
Results: 27 articles out of 396 articles were reviewed. The results of 348 hospitals had shown 79.9(22.9%), 76.8(21.7%), 117.8(33.8%), and 74.6(21.4%) of hospitals were in areas one, two, three, and four, respectively. The average of length of stay, bed occupancy, and bed turnover were 3.4 (3-3.7, 95% CI), 63 (41-95,95% CI), and 78.4 (71.8-85.2, 95% CI) per year, respectively.
Conclusion: Study results revealed that only one-third of hospitals were in area three in Pabon Lasso model. The performance status of three fields were average in the length of stay (approximately standard), bed occupancy (upper than standard), and bed turnover (lower than standard).
