Examining the role of value congruence, professional identity, and managerial job engagement in the budgetary participation-performance link.

Health Care Manage Rev 2018 Nov 20. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Manuela S. Macinati, PhD, is Full Professor of Management, Facoltà di Economia, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Rome, Italy. E-mail: Luciano Nieddu, PhD, is Associate Professor of Statistics, Facoltà di Economia, Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma, Italy. Marco Giovanni Rizzo, PhD, is Postdoctoral Researcher in Management, Facoltà di Economia, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Rome, Italy.

Background: In health care, important phenomena of perceived incompatibility between professional and managerial values have emerged as consequences of New Public Management reforms. Although there is a growing evidence on the variation in the enactment of hybrid roles by medical managers, existing research in health care management is mostly descriptive with little emphasis on the conditions under which hybrid roles are enacted and, importantly, on the effects of this variation on performance.

Purpose: In this article, we seek to fill this research gap by empirically examining (a) whether budgetary participation aligns professional and organizational values, (b) the impact of this alignment on employees' work-related feelings and managerial performance, and (c) the effect of professional identity on value congruence.

Hospital purchasing alliances: Ten years after.

Health Care Manage Rev 2018 Aug 3. Epub 2018 Aug 3.

Lawton R. Burns, PhD, MBA, The James Joo-Jin Kim Professor, Department of Health Care Management, The Wharton School, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. E-mail: Allison D. Briggs, BA, BSPH, is Doctoral Student, Department of Health Care Management, The Wharton School, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Background: Most hospitals outsource supply procurement to purchasing alliances, or group purchasing organizations (GPOs). Despite their early 20th century origin, we lack both national and trend data on alliance utilization, services, and performance. The topic is important as alliances help hospitals control costs, enjoy tailwinds from affiliated regional/local alliances, and face headwinds from hospital self-contracting and criticism of certain business practices.

E-mail: Andrea Blasco, PhD, is Postdoctoral Fellow, Institute of Quantitative Social Sciences, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Karim R. Lakhani, PhD, is Charles Edward Wilson Professor of Administration, Harvard Business School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Background: Frontline staff are well positioned to conceive improvement opportunities based on first-hand knowledge of what works and does not work. The innovation contest may be a relevant and useful vehicle to elicit staff ideas. However, the success of the contest likely depends on perceived organizational support for learning; when staff believe that support for learning-oriented culture, practices, and leadership is low, they may be less willing or able to share ideas.

Daniele Mascia, PhD, is Associate Professor of Organization and Management Theory, University of Bologna, Italy. E-mail: Emanuele Antonio Vendramini, PhD, is Full Professor of Management, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore and CERISMAS, Piacenza, Italy.

Background: In many health systems, general practitioners (GPs) exhibit high levels of isolation and, at the same time, low levels of organizational identification, which can hinder their individual performance. The extant health care literature suggests that the physicians' belief that organizational goals are important, the adoption of performance measurement systems, and knowledge-sharing practices affect their individual performance. Most research has investigated these constructs in isolation, however, rather than explored their collective impact on GPs' individual performance. Read More

Marler, DBA, is Associate Professor, Department of Management and Information Systems, College of Business, Mississippi State University, Starkville.

Background: Because nurses are on the front lines of care delivery, they are subject to frequent changes to their work practices. This change-laden environment puts nurses at higher risk for turnover. Given the frequent disruption to the way nurses perform their jobs, change-related self-efficacy (CSE), or confidence that one can handle change, may be vital to their retention. Read More

Fairbanks School of Public Health, Indiana University, Indianapolis.

Background: Changes in payment models incentivize hospitals to vertically integrate into sub-acute care (SAC) services. Through vertical integration into SAC, hospitals have the potential to reduce the transaction costs associated with moving patients throughout the care continuum and reduce the likelihood that patients will be readmitted.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine the correlates of hospital vertical integration into SAC. Read More

Background: Small independent practices are increasingly giving way to more complex affiliations between provider organizations and hospital systems. There are several ways in which vertically integrated health systems could improve quality and lower the costs of care. But there are also concerns that integrated systems may increase the price and costs of care without commensurate improvements in quality and outcomes. Read More

Background: The term Magnet hospital is an official designation ascribed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center for hospitals that meet specific criteria indicating they have a "magnetic work environment" for nurses. The objective of the Magnet designation is to encourage hospitals to design work in such a way as to attract and retain high-quality nurses and thus improve the quality of patient care. Empirical research has demonstrated that hospitals who earn a Magnet designation appear to have nurses who are more satisfied and committed to their work environments. Read More
