Abstract The use of group purchasing organizations (GPOs) as a supply chain intermediary is a long-standing and strategic approach to enhancing supply cost efficiency in U.S. hospitals. As a consequence, a hospital's decision to reconfigure its GPO network can have critical ramifications for the hospital's supply cost performance. In this study, we conceptualize possible GPO changes as structural and relational and investigate the impact of GPO changes on supply cost efficiency. To this end, we ...

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to propose a scalable conceptual framework for governance of supply chain (SC) information flows by re-contextualizing the organizational concept of information governance as an SC concept. Design/methodology/approach This study leverages the strategy-structure-process-performance (SSPP) theory base to explain how effective SC information governance relates to improved internal SC performance. Via an in-depth literature review followed by conceptual theory bu...

Motivation: The question of what combination of attributes drives the adoption of a particular software technology is critical to developers. It determines both those technologies that receive wide support from the community and those which may be abandoned, thus rendering developers' investments worthless. Aim and Context: We model software technology adoption by developers and provide insights on specific technology attributes that are associated with better visibility among alternative techno...

FLOSS ecosystem as a whole is a critical component of world’s computing infrastructure, yet not well understood. In order to understand it well, we need to measure it first. We, therefore, aim to provide a framework for measuring key aspects of the entire FLOSS ecosystem. We first consider the FLOSS ecosystem through lens of a supply chain. The concept of supply chain is the existence of series of interconnected parties/affiliates each contributing unique elements and expertise so as to ensure a...

Background: Current clinical nomograms such as American Urological Association/National Comprehensive Cancer Network (AUA/NCCN) risk categories or CAPRA may not always reflect prostate cancer (PCa) risk among African American men. We evaluated the usefulness of adding a commercially available cell cycle progression (CCP) score to improve risk stratification in a community-based African American population. Methods: Biopsy tissues from 150 African American and 60 Caucasian men were obtained from ...

As the healthcare industry is in the midst of a shift to value-based payment models, hospitals face increasing pressure to balance strategic priorities and to improve both the effectiveness and efficiency of care delivery. To confront these challenges, hospitals are placing an increased emphasis on process excellence. We use process excellence to denote a hospital's ability to, on average, treat a patient in the most effective and efficient manner. We use actual improvements in cost per discharg...

20Background: Racial disparities in prostate cancer (PCa) incidence and mortality are well known. PCa is known to be more aggressive in African American men (AAM) in terms of higher incidence and mortality rates. Here we validate a tumor gene expression pan-cancer race model in men with PCa and further characterize genomic differences that may contribute to disparate clinical outcomes Methods: We obtained de-identified genome-wide expression profiles from clinical use of the Decipher RP test in ...

As information technology (IT) proliferates across functional units, manufacturers that lack a coherent strategy for integrating, standardizing and leveraging their IT resources and capabilities are more likely to end up with fragmented systems that do not properly support business processes and hinder performance. One strategic approach to facilitating standardization and integration among IT resources is enterprise architecture (EA). As the representation of an enterprise's business processes ...
