Abstract

PURPOSE
This study was done to evaluate the operating status of community-based home health center for revitalization of the centers. METHOD: In this study performance data including organization plan and service utilization plan were evaluated according process theory. Target of evaluation was the community-based home health care center.
RESULTS
The vulnerable part of the organization was the information system and financial resources. The home health center introduced PDA (Personal Digital Assistants) in 2005, however home health care nurses did not make full use of it. This service received full support from Seoul city and local government and there were no other sources of income. The vulnerable part of service utilization was service expansion and standardization due to vulnerability of organizational aspects.
CONCLUSIONS
The home health care center provides high quality services to underprivileged people. In the future, these services should be provided with equity for continuous health care for this population.
