Abstract -
In recent years, services have generated a various interest and uptake by the industry and by researchers. A worldview of the service system is a system contains many systems that have an interaction out of values proposition.Services science used service system to gain a real insight of characterizing any system of organizationas a service system. This article provides a review contains service system concepts and applying a framework that been evolved in previous searches and employed to characterize a healthcare system as a service system.Through interviewing, survey and, modelling data by IDEF0 then apply the framework to characterizing the system. The research shows after applying the framework that healthcare organization system has all the qualities of service system.
