Organizational Reputation and Public Disclosure of Healthcare Quality trevor strome l healthcare analytics for quality and performance improvement
Policy analysts have argued that public disclosure of healthcare quality stimulates quality improvements in healthcare delivery organizations. One proposed mechanism for such an effect is the organization’s reputation: Provider organizations improve their quality after public reporting because the reported information affects their reputation. However, research evidence to date is mixed on whether and how reputation affects an organization’s response to public disclosure of health care quality data. Drawing from organizational theory and social psychology literature, this book examines the roles of reputation in organizational response to public reporting of healthcare quality. In particular, it examines whether quality improvement is more likely in organizations whose performance ranking are inconsistent with their prior reputations.

Management Consensus, Its Relation to Quality Performance trevor strome l healthcare analytics for quality and performance improvement
Consensus, or the level of agreement among the senior management team of a firm, had been the subject of interest in strategic management literature. Prior studies seemed to suggest that a higher level of agreement among the executive team would be associated with enhanced firm performance. This study extended prior researches on consensus by finding out if senior managers’ consensus on quality improvement decision processes (which pertained to management procedures for selecting and implementing an improvement theme or project) will be positively related to firm quality performance. In addition, this study attempted to find out if the firm’s emphasis on differentiation strategy vis-a-vis cost leadership strategy will moderate the relationship between consensus on quality improvement and firm quality performance. The study also determined if perceptions on market uncertainty will moderate the relationship between consensus on quality improvement and the quality performance of firms. Primary data were gathered through a survey of 45 Philippine firms taken as sample. Statistical analyses used multiple regression to test the hypothesized relationships among the variables studied.
