This study was conducted to test an instrument for measuring the level of institutionalization (LoIn) of health promotion programs.
Institutionalization occurs when a program becomes an integral part of an organization, and the LoIn instrument is a beginning effort to measure the extent of program integration into organizations.
The instrument is based on theory that holds that organizations are composed of production, maintenance, supportive, and managerial subsystems.
Institutionalization occurs when a program becomes imbedded into these subsystems.
A questionnaire designed to test this construct was mailed to 453 administrators in 141 organizations that operate health promotion programs.
Based on 322 usable responses (71%), a confirmatory factor analysis was conducted.
