INTRODUCTION: Today, it is important to use different indices to measure the performance of hospitals. This study aimed to investigate and evaluate the performance indicators of military hospitals and measurement of performance by using the Pabon Lasso model. METHODS: This was an applied and descriptive-analytical study that was conducted among five military hospitals affiliated to the Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran by using data from 2017 to 2018. Raw data related to performance indicators such as bed occupancy ratio (BOR), average length of stay (ALoS), and bed turnover rate (BTR) were collected by referring to the hospital medical record unit. After comparing performance indicators with the standards of the Ministry of Health, the Pabon Lasso model was used to measure hospitals' performance. RESULTS: In general, the average BOR and bed turnover interval rate are higher than that of the national standard in all hospitals and are in favorable status. However, the average length of stay in all hospitals was in unfavorable status. Furthermore, one and two hospitals were located in zone 3 in Pabon Lasso graph in the years 2017 and 2018, respectively. Overall, there was no change in the performance of the hospitals in the study time periods. CONCLUSION: In general, except for the average length of stay indicator, hospitals had a favorable performance level. Therefore, planning to improve performance indicators should be at the top of the programs.
