The European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) is the most introduced model in Spanish hospitals. The main target of this model is the internal and external client's satisfaction. The model of strategic management Balanced Scorecard (BSC) facilitates the alignment between management and the mission and vision of hospitals. For this reason, we propose a model of integrated management: EFQM-BSC. In order to obtain the items of this research, a survey was conducted among managers of Spanish hospitals on a battery of 46 indicators, selected from the EFQM model, and prioritised and included in the four perspectives of the BSC model. The research shows two possible models of hypothesis: the client model, where the final effect would be the client perspective (patient, staff and society's satisfaction), or the financial model, where the final effect would be the economic and financial results. After a reliability, dimension analysis and a discriminant analysis, it was obtained more consistent indicators which better explain each perspective. The relationship among these perspectives are determined by structural equations based on methods of partial least squares. The research confirms that the client model reflects a better consistency in its hypothesis. © 2007 SESPAS.
