The sampling group that was the customers of the private health care and fitness centers consisted of 150 female (47.3 %) and 167 male (52.7 %), totally 317 people. Principal component analysis (PCA) was performed for the factor analysis of the items. Five factors emerged which accounted for 65.7 % of the variance related with social and intellectual improvement, physical and psychological satisfaction, facility attractivity, staff attitudes and competence and cleanness of the center. Internal consistency method was used to test reliability. Cronbach alpha values indicated highly reliable results. For all items= .92 Factor 1= .88, factor 2= .89, factor 3= .80, factor 4= .81, factor 5= .81 The present study demonstrated that Customer Satisfaction Scale is a reliable and a valid instrument to measure customer satisfaction of the members of health care and fitness clubs in Turkey.

Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Baykal, Nazife (WILEY, 111 RIVER ST, HOBOKEN 07030-5774, NJ USA, 2006-12)
High quality information technology (IT) support is an integral factor in the success of today's health sector. However, the medical profession is considered to be low level investors in IT when compared to other sectors. Many international comparisons look at the expenditure spent on health IT as a basis for determining how effective the systems are.
