The Relationship between Organizational Factors and Timely Cardiac Catheterization Rate in ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction Patients of Hospitals in Thailand
Introduction: This descriptive study aimed to study an association between the level of readiness of administrative factors and the timely cardiac catheterization rate of patients with acute ischemic heart disease in hospitals in Thailand.
Materials and methods: The target population was 1,180 hospitals that serving heart disease in Thailand. Data were collected by using a questionnaire. A total of 1,022 response data were obtained. The statistics used to analyze the data were frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and correlation was analyzed by multiple regression analysis.
Results: The organizational factors, which consisted of personnel, finance, supporting, and management factors, had overall average readiness at a high level (x̄ = 3.34, S.D. = 0.27). While budget sufficiency was at a low level (x̄ = 2.43, S.D. = 0.43). All factors were significantly related to the timely cardiac catheterization rate, as follows: management factor (Adjust R2 = 0.442), personnel factor (Adjust R2 = 0.244), supporting factor (Adjust R2 = 0.212) and financial factor (Adjust R2 = 0.091).
Conclusion: Therefore, the Thai Ministry of Public Health should provide adequate support for organizational factors, especially in terms of budget sufficiency.
