ABSTRACT

Despite the importance of customer orientation and how it can influence the marketing efforts by an organization, the research on this particular construct has not been that much. Customer orientation is a vast term, used to cover all the components which contribute to maintain an efficient relation with client. It doesn’t mean being only aware of your clients, it also refers to the actions that need to be taken. in order to ensure they will continue to be your clients. Customer orientation has positive effects on sales performance, quality perception by the consumer, and construction of buyer-seller relationships and customer satisfaction. In this study, an attempt has been made to measure the impact of customer orientation practices on three dimensions of service quality, medical services, hospital infrastructure and patient communication. The results show that there is a significant relationship betw~en these various dimensions of service quality with customer orientation; hence the hospitals must focus on the customer orientation practices, so that the perception of patients and their attendants is on positive side regarding the service quality.
