A l’instar d’une entreprise industrielle, l’hôpital actuel présente les caractéristiques suivantes, quel que soit son statut ou sa localisation : Il est constitué d’un ensemble de ressources rares et limitées, de nature humaines, techniques, financières et immatérielles (savoirs et connaissances), dont il doit justifier d’une utilisation efficiente (en clair, maximiser le rapport output/coût) en regard des attentes diverses et parfois contradictoires de ses différentes parties prenantes (patients, collaborateurs, autorités de financement, autorités de contrôle) s’il veut remplir le rôle de création de valeur sociétale naturellement dévolu à toute organisation. En terme managérial, son défi quotidien est de : Gérer de manière coordonnée des flux multiples (flux des patients physiques, objets des soins ; flux des médicaments et des traitements, nécessaires à la fluidité du flux des patients ; flux d’information, traduction virtuelle des patients physiques nécessaire lui aussi à la fluidité du flux des patients) dans un souci permanent d’efficience multiple : garantir le bon soin au bon patient au bon moment avec l’information suffisante, les médicaments et l’infrastructure adéquate, le tout, au moindre coût. Simultanément, coordonner en permanence l’ensemble des ressources humaines, matérielles et financières de l’organisation, et surtout motiver la principale ressource critique, l’ensemble des collaborateurs (corps médical, corps infirmier, corps technicien de support, corps de support à la gestion), en résolvant de manière continue les défis quotidiens d’une bonne communication interpersonnelle (dans et entre les services), d’une motivation individuelle alignée sur les besoins et les attentes de l’organisation et d’une parfaite coordination avec les attentes du patient.

The purpose of this paper is to present the concept of economic security of the organization. Guiding by the constructivism approach, the author conducts a narrative literature review on economic security of organization in parallel with well-known theories of business management.The presented in the paper ideas are an impulse for a new wave in organizational research basing on a new globalizing theoretical framework. The proposed approach to organizational management through the prism of security allows connecting disjoined concepts used in organizational studies and highlights aspects important for organizational survival and growth but mostly overlooked by scientists. The paper’s value consists in evolving of a relatively unexploited concept of economic security of the organization. [less ▲]

Introduction: This article analyses the composition of healthcare costs for HIV/AIDS infected patients in a country with limited resources and attempts to identify the factors that influence these costs. The aims are to calculate medical care costs, analysing how they vary depending on patients' income, and to evaluate the factors explaining healthcare consumption. Methods: This is a prospective cohort study focusing on patients who were admitted to hospital for a short stay between January 2010 and June 2011, before their integration into a specialised program. The patients were selected randomly. Free consent was obtained from all participants. Data were analysed using the SPSS 19.0 software. The significance threshold was set at 5% and the CI (Confidence Interval) at 95%. We used Kruskal-Wallis tests, Fisher's exact test and multiple linear regression. Results: We monitored 209 patients. Their average age was 36.37 years (SD: 8.72). The sex ratio was 0.58 and the women patients were generally younger than the male ones (p=0.011). The overall cost of healthcare amounted to $US 41,922. The cost of Antiretroviral Therapy represented 21.6% ($US 9,045). The price of para-clinical examinations represented 46% ($US 19,136) of the overall cost. The patient's average monthly income was $US 157.40 whereas the average direct cost per patient was$US 201.45. Both monthly income (t=4.385; p=0.0000) and education level (t=3.703 p=0.0003) were statistically significant predictive factors for healthcare consumption. The medical care costs for patients with opportunistic infections were nine times higher than those for patients who presented none. The presence of opportunistic infections increased healthcare consumption by approximately 31$ US (CI 95%: 15-46.9). Conclusion: The average direct cost for patients on each short-term stay was higher than the average monthly income. To be able to access the necessary services, the patients need additional resources, which are derived from various sources. Monthly income and the level of education were both statistically significant predictors for healthcare consumption. The analysis allows us to extend the study by using different analytical accounting approaches such as by case and by pathology. [less ▲]

This study examines the processes and the life domains of the Child Quality of Life Systemic Inventory (ISQV-E(c) in French - Missotten, Etienne & Dupuis, 2007), involved in the suffering of depressed children, assessed with the CDI. These questionnaires were administered to 453 to school age children (8-12 years old) and they all spoke French (273 French, 180 Belgian). An initial analysis was undertaken to verify the nature of the model, additive vs multiplicative, underlying the ISQV-E(c). Five factors were tested: the Goal, the Discrepancy (distance between State and Goal), Speed, Rank and the Gap. Regression analysis revealed that only the Goal and the Discrepancy are significantly related to suffering depression (additive model). From these two factors, a second analysis was performed to account for domains of life most involved in suffering from depression. The results dealt with a PLS path modeling helped to update the 10 domains of life, of the twenty-evaluated by the ISQV-E(c), likely to predict depressive suffering of children. The specific contribution of the ISQV-E(c) is discussed in relation to depressive affect assessed with the CDI. [less ▲]

A l'heure actuelle, il existe relativement peu de recherches qui traitent du système de contrôle de gestion des PME, spécialement dans le contexte tunisien, malgré leur importance économique. La présente communication vise dès lors à élaborer un modèle théorique expliquant le design du système de contrôle de gestion dans les PMI tunisiennes, au départ d'une analyse de la littérature portant spécifiquement soit sur les PMI tunisiennes, soit sur le système de contrôle de gestion de la PME. Cette étude est réalisée en privilégiant deux angles d'analyse particulièrement importants au vu du contexte tunisien, à savoir la taille de l'entreprise et son positionnement sur le cycle de vie.

After an in-depth review of the scientific literature dedicated to (small) business failure causes (Crutzen et Van Caillie, 2008), it comes out that mismanagement is, by far, the failure cause which is the most commonly evoked by previous researchers (Argenti, 1976; Wichman, 1983; Newton, 1985; O'Neill and Duker, 1986; Thornhill and Amit, 2003). Nevertheless, the concept of « mismanagement » is relatively vague and large (Bruno et al., 1987; Sheldon, 1994). It is thus now necessary to clarify it if one wants to better understand the causes of small business failure and, in fine, to better prevent this phenomenon (Argenti, 1976). In particular, it is essential to distinguish between the main categories of managerial problems small businesses can be faced to in order to be able to better anticipate their failure (thanks to adequate trainings, for example) and in order to propose adequate remedies to specific managerial problems small distressed firms are confronted to. In this context, the current article identifies, on the basis of two complementary statistical analyses, three specific patterns for badly-managed firms, amongst a sample of 91 small distressed firms.

Our research applies to the healthcare sector which is operating in a period of significant and rapid evolutions since the last thirty years. It investigates the design of the performance monitoring systems in healthcare organizations, in a contingent and comparative perspectives. This contribution summarizes the results of four chapters and uses respectively three methodologies, applied to answer the following “what” and “how” general questions: - What influences the design of the performance monitoring systems adopted in the healthcare organizations? - How does it evolve with the hospital’s attributes evolution? - What are the major internal and external motivations and/or the major barriers that have emphasized and/or limited its evolution? - What is the role of the healthcare players on the hospital’s management? In a contingent perspective, the first chapter, based on macro-economic analysis of the healthcare sector, identifies the increasing need to monitor performance at the hospital entity level. It points out to some social, political, technological and competitive contingent factors that have emerged from the environmental mutations. These contingent factors are then integrated in an original unifying model that is validated via three empirical chapters. - The first chapter is dedicated to the contingent model’s validation in the Belgian healthcare sector. It investigates the link between these variables and the management tools, via an online questionnaire, a test of information and a test of independence. - The second chapter appraises the manager’s perception of uncertainty in volatile environments and analyzes the impact of some contingent factors affecting his decision-making style. It relies on the contingency theory of leadership that is applied to assess the external environmental mutations that are manipulating the organizational attributes (structure, size, level of technology and ownership). Hence, they are emerging certain situations of uncertainty that shape the managerial choices (“decision style”, autonomy and personal profile) on the adoption of a suitable management system. The methodology is based on a “qualitative comparative approach” of thirty case studies, lead in two heterogeneous environments (Belgium and Lebanon). - The last empirical chapter goes beyond the organizational attributes to investigate the role and impact of the various players who are involved in healthcare organizations. Based on a qualitative approach, we illustrate, for every player, his position within the system. Consequently, we define his culture, intentions, and responsiveness that manipulate the organization’s internal climate and shape the design of the performance monitoring systems. Out of twenty-two case studies, the qualitative findings are expected to add knowledge on the adequate choice of a management system, within three healthcare organizational structures: university, general/university and general hospitals.

This PhD dissertation first higlights the specificities of business failure prediction in SMEs, then elaborates a methodology based on the use of correspondence analysis to predict and ultimately to prevent bankruptcy by analyzing financial statements published by SMEs. It insists on the undercapitalisation of the company and on the disequilibrium between turnover and total assets as factors increasing the risk and the speed of business failure. [less ▲]
