Recognition and valuation of hospital personnel in Italy.

Author information

  • 1Azienda Ospedaliera Ospedale Niguarda Ca' Granda, Milan, Italy.


After the 1993 healthcare reform, all public hospitals in Italy were changed into public firms. The increasing commitment to pursue efficiency has introduced the need for a managerial responsibility in healthcare organizations. However, activities and resource use in hospitals driven by professionals and senior management often has a limited insight on business processes. We developed a three-dimensional evaluation system based on: (a) personal support to the overall team output, (b) assessment of organizational behavour and (c) individual goals setting (MBO). According to the position held, personal goals are negotiated with direct reports across three domains: managerial attitude, professional skills and organizational behaviours.
