Background and Objectives: Promoting health indicators is a key issue in most societies. In this regard, health deputies, through stewardship, monitoring, and coordination, take meassures to promote these indicators. The aim of the present study was to design a model for ranking the performance of the deputies.
 
Methods: This applied qualitative study was conducted in 2012. The research team included 12 health experts who were selected according to management records and long experience in the health deputy. In this study, a review of the literature and documents was done and then, with the focus group discussions and expert opinions, key indicators were defined.
 
Results: a model consisting of 9 process criteria (13 general indicators and 15 specific indicators) was identified for ranking of health deputies. The general processes included leadership and management, programs and strategies, resources and partnerships, manpower, and comprehensive information and statistics system And specific processes included primary health care (PHC), family physician (FP), social determinants of health (SDH) and pilot national plans. The range of indicators scores was between 1-8, which were compared with the zero indicator.
 
Conclusion: The findings showed that the process components and indicators were more effective in determining the status of the health deputies’ performance, and the proposed model is based on the matter. So, it is recommended that the Ministry of Health ranks health deputies every two years to improve process components and criteria of the model based on practical results.
