HEALTH CARE MANAGEMENT (HCM)
Program Chair: Sara Singer, Stanford University; email@example.com
Specific domain: The HCM division invites
symposium and paper submissions addressing any aspect of the
healthcare industry. Topics include management of health care
providers and organizations, related firms such as pharmaceutical
firms, medical device suppliers, and community service providers;
role of non-health related firms on health; public policy issues,
such as access to care; competition, cost control, quality, and
safety of care, and their implications for managers; health care
finance, insurance design, incentives, and marketing; comparisons
of health care across countries; empirical or conceptual
applications of theory in health care organizations; and
development of organizational theory from studies conducted in
health care settings.
Special Instructions: In addition to submissions
addressing the HCM domain, the HCM division also encourages papers
and symposia focused on the 2019 conference theme, Understanding the
Inclusive Organization. Inclusive organizations are open
systems of opportunity in which all stakeholders have access to
information, resources, and the capacity to fully contribute to
their functioning. The 2019 theme invites members to understand the
inclusive organization by answering such questions as: What is
inclusive practice? What are the effects of inclusion on employee,
organizational, or societal outcomes? How can we create more
inclusive environments? Submissions addressing the theme in these
or other ways related to health care management are welcome.
Symposia proposals are particularly encouraged, as they provide
conference attendees a coherent, focused session of either a series
of authored papers explicitly linked to a common theme, or a group
of panelists engaged in a formal interactive discussion around
particular issues or questions.
The HCM division also encourages submissions from PhD students.
Papers with a PhD student as the first or sole author should be
clearly identified at the time of submission. We also
encourage papers that are earlier in development that would benefit
from collegial discussion.
