Abstract: The purpose of this article is to describe a step-by-step process for decision making, and a model
is developed to aid health care managers in making more quality decisions, which ultimately
determines the success of organizations. The DECIDE model is the acronym of 6 particular
activities needed in the decision-making process: (1) D = define the problem, (2) E = establish the
criteria, (3) C = consider all the alternatives, (4) I = identify the best alternative, (5) D = develop
and implement a plan of action, and (6) E = evaluate and monitor the solution and feedback when
necessary. The DECIDE model is intended as a resource for health care managers when applying
the crucial components of decision making, and it enables managers to improve their decision making
skills, which leads to more effective decisions.
