Towards a Hospital Cooperation Maturity Model - Construction and Evaluation of a Maturity Model and a corresponding Tool for the Identification of Challenges and Success Factors for Cooperation in the Hospital Sector

Item Type Journal paper
Abstract

With the introduction of case rates, the increase in regional competition and the increased quality awareness of patients, hospitals are faced with fundamental challenges. Experiences from health systems that have been working under these conditions for some time have shown that the following capabilities are crucial for their survival: Development of efficient supply structures, improving competitiveness and ensuring a high quality of treatment. In terms of a holistic supply and a quality advantage, the ability for intra-and inter-organizational with other medical service providers is therefore of fundamental importance.

Together with five hospitals from Switzerland and Germany, the researchers followed a maturity approach for measuring success factors for cooperation. They describe the identification of these factors and their evaluation with practitioners. Furthermore they present results of an initial pilot survey. As underlying foundation the multidimensional business engineering approach has been identified as an appropriate framework in order to reflect the organizational complexity of hospitals.
