Proposed Models for Shaping Pro-Innovative Organizational Culture in Public Hospitals
Purpose: The main goal of the article is an attempt to select measurement constructs of pro-innovative organizational culture in public hospitals. Design/Methodology/Approach: First, as a result of a database search, a set of theoretical variables was identified that could measure pro-innovative organizational culture in public hospitals. Then, empirical exploration was carried out on a sample of 570 respondents (doctors, nurses and managers) in 3 public hospitals operating in Poland with different reference levels: clinical care (A), voivodeship (B) and poviat (C). The theoretical model was verified on the basis of a descriptive data mining project with a cross-sectional approach using factor analysis. Findings: The findings have been found from a descriptive data mining project with a cross-sectional approach using factor analysis. The results of the research allowed for the identification of 5-factor models for each type of hospital. The most important factors in shaping a pro-innovative organizational culture include variables regarding the strategy and goals of the hospital, organizational trust and patient orientation of the staff. Practical Implications: In practice, the created models may constitute guidelines for measuring and purposefully shaping a pro-innovative organizational culture in public hospitals. Originality/value: Although there are over a dozen scientific reports in the world literature on the relationship between organizational culture and innovation in the context of shaping pro-innovative organizational culture, few of them concern the public health care sector. Therefore, an attempt was made to fill this gap.
