Behavioral Health Disorders And The Quality Of Diabetes Care: A Dissertation, Yat (Gary) Hung Leung 2010 University of Massachusetts Medical School

Behavioral Health Disorders And The Quality Of Diabetes Care: A Dissertation, Yat (Gary) Hung Leung

GSBS Dissertations and Theses

Both diabetes and behavioral health disorders (mental and substance use disorders) are significant health issues in the United States. While previous studies have shown worse health outcomes in people with diabetes and co-occurring behavioral health disorders (BHDs) than those with diabetes alone, it is unclear whether the quality of diabetes care was poorer in the presence of co-occurring BHDs. Although previous research has observed a trend of positive outcomes in people with comprehensive diabetes care, there is a lack of evidence about whether that mode of care delivery can improve outcomes in people with co-occurring BHDs. Therefore, further studies are ...


Methodological Challenges In Union Commitment Studies, Mahmut Bayazit, Tove Hammer, David L. Wazeter 2010 Cornell University

Methodological Challenges In Union Commitment Studies, Mahmut Bayazit, Tove Hammer, David L. Wazeter

Tove H Hammer

Excerpt] Methodological problems in studies of union commitment were identified and illustrated with data from 4,641 members and 479 stewards in 297 local teachers’ unions. Using a 20-item union commitment scale, results confirmed the existence of 3 substantive factors and 1 method factor at the individual level of analysis: loyalty to the union, responsibility to the union, willingness to work for the union, and a factor of negatively worded items. Tests of measurement invariance showed that the scale captured commitment for rank-and-file members but not for union stewards. The authors also found partial measurement invariance between long-time and newer ...


Steward Training In The Construction Industry: The United Brotherhood Of Carpenters And Joiners Of America Faces The Challenge, Jeffrey Grabelsky 2010 Cornell University

Steward Training In The Construction Industry: The United Brotherhood Of Carpenters And Joiners Of America Faces The Challenge, Jeffrey Grabelsky

Jeffrey Grabelsky

[Excerpt] This article examines the development and delivery of the Carpenters union national construction steward training program. It describes the collaboration of the union and Cornell University in the design of the curriculum and the use of a train-the-trainer model in the delivery of the steward program in construction locals throughout the United States and Canada. Finally, it evaluates the effectiveness of the program in relation to the transfer of knowledge to participating stewards.


A Welfare Economic Analysis Of Labor Market Policies In The Harris-Todaro Model, Gary S. Fields 2010 Cornell University

A Welfare Economic Analysis Of Labor Market Policies In The Harris-Todaro Model, Gary S. Fields

Gary S Fields

This paper presents a welfare economic analysis of the benefits of various labor market policies in the Harris-Todaro labor market model. The policies considered are a policy of modern sector job creation, which I call modern sector enlargement (MSENL); a policy of rural development, which I call traditional sector enrichment (TSENR); and a policy of wage limitation in the urban economy, which I call modern sector wage restraint (MSWR). First, I analyze the inequality effects of these policies. I then perform two welfare economic analyses, the first based on summary measures of labor market conditions (total labor earnings, unemployment, inequality ...


When Managers Bypass Shareholder Approval Of Board Appointments: Evidence From The Private Security Market, Matteo Arena, Stephen P. Ferris 2010 Marquette University

When Managers Bypass Shareholder Approval Of Board Appointments: Evidence From The Private Security Market, Matteo Arena, Stephen P. Ferris

Matteo P. Arena

This paper investigates the influence of managerial entrenchment on private placements by examining the firm's decision to appoint representatives of the private investors to the board without shareholder approval. By analyzing a sample of U.S. firms that appoint directors in combination with private offerings between 1995 and 2000, we find that firms with greater managerial entrenchment are more likely to bypass shareholder approval. Firms that bypass shareholders are less likely to appoint independent directors or to elect one of these directors as chairman. We also show that the market reacts more positively to the private offering announcement when ...

The Health Insurance Reform Debate, Scott E. Harrington

Business Economics and Public Policy Papers

This article provides an overview of the U.S. health care reform debate and legislation, with a focus on health insurance. Following a synopsis of the main problems that confront U.S. health care and insurance, it outlines the health care reform bills in the U.S. House and Senate as of early December 2009, including the key provisions for expanding and regulating health insurance, and projections of the proposals' costs, funding, and impact on the number of people with insurance. The article then discusses (1) the potential effects of the mandate that individuals have health insurance in conjunction with ...

Value Creation In Innovation Ecosystems: How The Structure Of Technological Interdependence Affects Firm Performance In New Technology Generations, Ron Adner, Rahul Kapoor 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Value Creation In Innovation Ecosystems: How The Structure Of Technological Interdependence Affects Firm Performance In New Technology Generations, Ron Adner, Rahul Kapoor

Management Papers

The success of an innovating firm often depends on the efforts of other innovators in its environment. How do the challenges faced by external innovators affect the focal firm's outcomes? To address this question we first characterize the external environment according to the structure of interdependence. We follow the flow of inputs and outputs in the ecosystem to distinguish between upstream components that are bundled by the focal firm, and downstream complements that are bundled by the firm's customers. We hypothesize that the effects of external innovation challenges depend not only on their magnitude, but also on their ...


Competing Manufacturers In A Retail Supply Chain: On Contractual Form And Coordination, Gerard. P. Cachon, Abdullah Gurhan Kok 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Competing Manufacturers In A Retail Supply Chain: On Contractual Form And Coordination, Gerard. P. Cachon, Abdullah Gurhan Kok

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

It is common for a retailer to sell products from competing manufacturers. How then should the firms manage their contract negotiations? The supply chain coordination literature focuses either on a single manufacturer selling to a single retailer or one manufacturer selling to many (possibly competing) retailers. We find that some key conclusions from those market structures do not apply in our setting, where multiple manufacturers sell through a single retailer. We allow the manufacturers to compete for the retailer's business using one of three types of contracts: a wholesale-price contract, a quantity-discount contract, or a two-part tariff. It is ...


Revenue Management With Strategic Customers: Last-Minute Selling And Opaque Selling, Kinshuk Jerath, Serguei Netessine, Senthil K. Veeraraghavan 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Revenue Management With Strategic Customers: Last-Minute Selling And Opaque Selling, Kinshuk Jerath, Serguei Netessine, Senthil K. Veeraraghavan

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

Companies in a variety of industries (e.g., airlines, hotels, theaters) often use last-minute sales to dispose of unsold capacity. Although this may generate incremental revenues in the short term, the long-term consequences of such a strategy are not immediately obvious: More discounted last-minute tickets may lead to more consumers anticipating the discount and delaying the purchase rather than buying at the regular (higher) prices, hence potentially reducing revenues for the company. To mitigate such behavior, many service providers have turned to opaque intermediaries, such as Hotwire.com, that hide many descriptive attributes of the service (e.g., departure times ...


I’Ll Have The Ice Cream Soon And The Vegetables Later: A Study Of Online Grocery Purchases And Order Lead Time, Katherine L. Milkman, Todd Rogers, Max H. Bazerman 2010 University of Pennsylvania

I’Ll Have The Ice Cream Soon And The Vegetables Later: A Study Of Online Grocery Purchases And Order Lead Time, Katherine L. Milkman, Todd Rogers, Max H. Bazerman

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

How do decisions made for tomorrow or 2 days in the future differ from decisions made for several days in the future? We use data from an online grocer to address this question. In general, we find that as the delay between order completion and delivery increases, grocery customers spend less, order a higher percentage of “should” items (e.g., vegetables), and order a lower percentage of “want” items (e.g., ice cream), controlling for customer fixed effects. These field results replicate previous laboratory findings and are consistent with theories suggesting that people’s should selves exert more influence over ...


The Effect Of Medicare Part D On Pharmaceutical Prices And Utilization, Mark Duggan, Fiona S. morton 2010 University of Pennsylvania

The Effect Of Medicare Part D On Pharmaceutical Prices And Utilization, Mark Duggan, Fiona S. Morton

Health Care Management Papers

Medicare Part D began coverage of prescription drugs in 2006. Rather than setting pharmaceutical prices, the government contracted with private insurers to provide drug coverage. Theory suggests that additional insured consumers will raise the optimal price of a branded drug, while the insurer's ability to move demand to substitute treatments may lower prices. We estimate the program's effect on the price and utilization of pharmaceutical treatments. We find that Part D enrollees paid substantially lower prices than while uninsured, and increased their utilization of prescription drugs. We find relative price declines only for drugs with significant therapeutic competition.


Effects Of Personality On Attitudes Toward Academic Group Work, William R. Forrester Jr., Armen Tashchian 2010 Kennesaw State University

Effects Of Personality On Attitudes Toward Academic Group Work, William R. Forrester Jr., Armen Tashchian

Faculty Publications

This study investigated the effects of personality on attitudes toward academic group work among a sample of 225 business students. Data were collected using pre-existing scales for measuring personality and attitudes toward academic group work. Specifically, the Neo-FFI scale was used to measure the five personality dimensions of openness, agreeableness, extroversion, conscientiousness and neuroticism. Regression analysis indicated that extroversion was the best predictor of respondents' attitudes toward academic group work. Individuals with high extroversion scores had positive attitudes toward academic group work. Neuroticism, agreeableness and conscientiousness were also related to respondents' preference for group work and discomfort with group work ...

Measuring College Students’ Technology Selfefficacy, Debbie D. Dufrene, Timothy W. Clipson, S. Ann Wilson

Faculty Publications

The pervasiveness of computer technology and continuing developments in software, multimedia, and Internet resources have led to the implementation of new teaching and learning methods. Educators committed to the integration of technology into the learning process believe it will expand learning and better prepare students to participate effectively in today’s workplace. Employers demand workers who can not only use technology to complete a variety of work tasks and processes but who can leverage technology to advance the firm’s strategic operations.

While many students perceive themselves to be computer competent, research indicates that their preparation is not always complete ...
