Research addresses the competitiveness of medical services and evaluates the size of gaps concerning dysfunctions strategic, competitive and operational. Investigate strategic dysfunction and the impact of operational dysfunction in ophthalmology clinics. The sample consists of subjects related to clinics located in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The results showed that the average gap value is 0.61, which is significantly higher (at the significance level of 0.05) than the average 0.43 of functions.
