The Ex-post facto correlational study design conducted in National Capital Region, India in three multi-specialty hospitals with 500 beds are administered by three different establishments - trust run, charity based, corporate managed. About 239 medical practitioners were interviewed randomly to understand their performances and productivity.

The study cautioned that the relationship between medical practitioners and the establishment going upside down, which required to be examined to improve the employee engagement and its outcomes such as patient satisfaction and quality of care, both positively and negatively.
