Therefore, this study was conducted to evaluate the personnel`s views about implementation of performance based payment in hospitals affiliated with Shiraz University of Medical Sciences.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 424 personnel affiliated with Shiraz University of Medical Sciences in 2015. A research made questionnaire was applied as a research instrument that its validity and reliability was confirmed by expert confirmation and Cronbach index (α = 0.95), respectively. Data was analyzed using independent t-test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson’s correlation coefficient and one sample t-test.

Results: The average score of nurses’ opinions in performance based payment was 3.52+1.28, personnel of hospital pharmacy 3.55+1.57, laboratory staffs 3.68+1.25, radiology staffs 3.41+1.11,and rehabilitation ward 3.32+0.90. This viewpoint average score had significant relationship with the employment status (p= 0.027). The results of Pearson’s correlation test showed that there was a significant relationship among the scores of all aspects of the questionnaire together (p<0.001). Also a significant relationship was observed between the mean score of these aspects with the fixed score of 3 as the average level (p<0.001).
