Description: This plenary will give attendees the opportunity to hear from senior members of the health care management community (the ones who started HORA/now called OTHC and their compatriots). We will hear from them how they think about organizational behavior and theory, changes that they have observed, and research gaps that they see. This will likely be the last time to hear from them in a forum like this. We intend for attendees to engage with the panel and each other about remarks, and ways for moving organizational theory in health care forward.

Mitesh Patel, MD – Penn School of Medicine
Roy Rosin, MBA, Chief Innovation Officer, Penn Medicine
Kevin Mahoney, MBA, Executive Vice-President, UPHS
Moderator: Rob Burns, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania


Description: Many of us want our research to contribute to organizational theory and improvement in health care delivery. For the latter, it can help to know what organizations and their leaders would like more information about from us, and how we can best partner with them to improve theory and practice. Penn Medicine and University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) have a history of inviting researchers to study and innovate their organizational practices. In this plenary, leaders of both groups will highlight issues at the forefront of their minds. Researchers who have collaborated with them to address some of these issues will reflect on their experience and findings.
