Abstract: 

In the era of knowledge based economy, knowledge management is a key factor of organization competitiveness, and intellectual capital management is one of the core instruments for knowledge management. “How to create, manage, and evaluate intellectual capital” is an important issue for modern organizations. Due to intangibility of intellectual, its value cannot be properly measured by using traditional financial index. In order to measure the intellectual capital in healthcare sector, an evaluation process using Analytic Network Process is proposed in this study. The intellectual capital of four hospitals in Shiraz City is evaluated and discussed. The empirical results show that among different dimensions of intellectual capital, human capital is relatively more important. Furthermore, expertise and knowledge of employees plays an important role in intellectual capital.
