Abstract
Objectives : To examine various dimensions of consumer ratings of health care service with factor analysis and to find which factors influence the overall quality of health care service.

A self-administered questionnaire was used to assess the consumer`s ratings of health care service received. The response rate was 92.80/o with a total of 537 persons completing the questionnaire. Factor analysis was performed on 34 items evaluating the quality of health care service. Items were grouped into 5 dimensions as a result of factor analysis and the reliability and validity of influence on patient service assessment were evaluated for each dimension.



Results : The 5 dimensions were as follows 1) physician services, 2) non-physician services. 3) process 4) facilities, and 5) cleanliness.



A positive correlation with the quality of health care service was found for the dimensions of non-physician services and process, while no significant correlation was found for the dimensions of physician services, facilities, and cleanliness.
