Hospice Care in Hospital: A Resource Dependence and Institutional Perspective BIOS524 Hsueh-Fen Chen 12/09/03 Introduction (I) The Importance of this research The demand of hospice care increased Not a high profit service for hospitals Hospices focus on caring; hospitals focus on curing and discharging patients quickly.

Introduction (II) Hospitals face technical environment and institutional environment. Hospitals pursue autonomy and legitimacy. Research Question What economic and non-economic factors influence hospitals to engage in hospice care? The Purpose of this Research

To understand the dynamics of the underlying organizational behavior. To add the knowledge of macrolevel organizational theories. Literature Review (I) Resource dependence theory: organizations survive dependent upon the extent to which they effectively manage their environmental demands, or acquire and maintain vital resources (Pfeffer and Salancik, 1978). The types of resource are important resource, scarce resource, and resource capacity. Literature Review (II)

Institutional theory: organizations behaviors shaped by myth and irrationality (Scott, 2002). Organizations compete not just for resources, but for political power and institutional legitimacy. Through isomorphism mechanisms, coercive; mimetic, and normative isomorphism, organizations become legitimate and use their legitimacy to enhance their success and survival(Meyer, & Rowan, 1991; DiMaggio & Powell, 1991). Theoretical Framework Resource dependency theory Important resource Resource scarcity *Resource capacity -hospital size Institutional theory Coercive pressure Professional pressure

*Normative pressure -ownership Hospice adoption Hypotheses H1: Hospitals with large size are more likely to employ vertical integration in providing hospice service than small hospitals. large hospitals have more resource. Hypotheses H2: Not-for-profit hospitals are more likely to employ a higher

degree of vertical integration in providing hospice service than profit hospitals. Not-for profit hospitals meet the stakeholders expectation. For-profit hospital meet the shareholders expectation. Methods Research Design: cross-sectional research. Population: non-government, and nonfederal hospitals.

The results in this study strongly support these two hypotheses. Size and hospice adoption More resource Not-for proit vs. for profit The expectation of stakeholders vs. of shareholders Discussion and implication Expected outcome of variables
