This result supports the results of the previous studies and systematic reviews on determinants of patient satisfaction. 24, 139 However, there is evidence that socio-demographic factors of patients affect the satisfaction with health services. Yet, the contradictory effects of the socio-demographic variables may show that these variables should be taken into account when comparing patient satisfaction between specific groups or countries 24, 141 due to their potential moderating and mediating effects on the associations between health service quality indicators and patient satisfaction. 4,

According to Juran, control is a process related activity that ensures processes are stable and provides a relatively consistent outcome. Control involves gathering data about a process to ensure the process is consistent. Breakthrough improvement implies the process has been studied and that some major improvements has resulted in large nonrandom improvement to the process. The difference between control and breakthrough can be understood when considering a disease such as polio. Control activities involved improving health by quarantining people who had the disease.
Moreover, beginning in 2012, the NIS was redesigned from the “sample of hospitals” to the “sample of discharges” which are from all hospitals participating in HCUP. It contains about 300 million discharges data from races of white, black, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American, and other with age of 0 to 124 years . NIS data types include primary and secondary diagnoses and procedures with ICD–9–CM code, patient demographic characteristics (e.g., sex, age, race, and median household income for ZIP Code), hospital characteristics (e.g., ownership), expected payment source, total charges, discharge status, length of stay, severity and comorbidity measures
Several of the group's hospitals have been among the first in India to receive international healthcare accreditation by America-based Joint Commission International (JCI).

Chopra and Sodhi (2004) propose the use of ‘stress testing’. Since each supply chain is unique, the risk mitigation strategies should be tailored accordingly to suit the entire supply chain. Even though they are not explicitly distinguished, the risk categories discussed by Chopra and Sodhi (2004) are established on the basis of supply chain flows. However, a clear definition of the fundamentals of risk seems to be lacking. In some of the risk categories, such as the forecast risk, where the authors highlight the issues of the bullwhip effect, one may argue whether this could be considered as operational uncertainty and could be managed with correctly operating supply chain.
