The area has diverse international literature, so the article limit to logic of hospital operation, result of role conflict, economic and clinical factors in decision-making. In the research qualitative methodology was used for data collection: managerial interviews and in case of decision support, homogeneous focus group interviews. The top managers typically put emphasis on financial information, and examine mostly the historical data, with negligible future scopes.
