Agility reflects the hospital's response to environmental changes, and agile hospitals are able to provide appropriate services to the patients. Hospital supply chain management agility needs to find the main aspects affecting the relationship and communication between them and to analyze the dimensions together. The purpose of this study was interpretive-structural modeling and analysis of dimensions of agile hospital supply chain management.
Materials and Methods: The research design combined descriptive - survey exploratory approach to the future. The population study were doctors, nurses and staff at the University of Medical Sciences. The Delphi technique was used to determine the dimensions of agility and the interpretive-structural modeling approach was used for analysis and modeling. Mick Mac software was used to analyze the dimensions of agility.
Results: The final model of agile hospital supply chain management with 16 dimensions had 8 levels, which was at the highest level of cost reduction and at the lowest level of organizational leadership commitment. The results indicate that leadership commitment is the foundation of supply chain agility in the hospital. Knowledge management variable had low impact and effectiveness and was known as a secondary leverage variable. The results showed that most agile supply chain management aspects of the main causes of complex communication and interaction, and the importance of agility in the hospital of the show.
