Community orientation and the strategic posture of hospitals
The authors used a panel study to analyze the role of mimetic isomorphism in determining the strategic posture of hospitals as measured by their community orientation. They divided the sample into 3 groups ranging from most isomorphic to least isomorphic with regard to the dependent variables of community-orientation activities and health-promotion programs. Over time, the most isomorphic group of hospitals scored significantly higher on both dependent variables.
