Introduction: One of the most important strategies of every organization is the decision to "build" or "buy" goods or services they need throughout the supply chain. The productivity of organizational costs is an important factor in attempts of organizations to achieve an appropriate level of outsourcing. The purpose of this research was to determine the correlation between strategic outsourcing and hospital supply chain performance.
Methods: This was a descriptive-correlation research. The statistical population included the head and the deputies of private hospitals of Tehran (73 hospitals) with information about the supply chain of hospitals, with a sample of 129 individuals. For sure, 150 hospital outsourcing questionnaires were sent to top managers of 50 private hospitals in Tehran. From this total, 133 questionnaires were collected. The content validity of the instrument was confirmed by the focal group and the participation of 17 health education educators. To verify its reliability, Cronbach's alpha coefficient and composite reliability were used. The data were analyzed structural equation modeling with partial least squares approach with the SmartPLS3 software.
Results: The results of this research indicate that there is a significant relationship between strategic outsourcing in hospitals and supply chain performance. Among the variables in the supply chain performance of the hospital, service performance management had the most significant relationship with the quality of the supply chain performance of the hospital.
Conclusions: Based on the results of this study, strategic development of outsourcing is suggested by recognizing the competitive advantages of hospitals, establishing strategic relationships with suppliers, and controlling and monitoring them, in order to improve the performance of the hospital supply chain.
