Seminar: Regulating Organizational Change in Health Care Facilities: How Effective?


Friday 20 Sep 2019
From 10:45AM To 12:30PM

The promotion of new organizational frameworks has become a preferred method of regulation in many sectors of activity. However, the effectiveness of this form of regulation is still poorly evaluated.

Olivier Baly's analytical work on the effects of regulatory mechanisms deployed during the 2015-2017 Transformation Plan of the French health system aims to help fill this gap. The objective of these measures was to adopt a new organizational framework - that of outpatient hospitalisation - in 196 French health establishments. The results of this study highlight two main determinants of the effectiveness of these devices: (1) their congruence in change management strategies adapted to the internal dynamics of organizations; and (2) the relevance of the proposed organizational framework to the ultimate objectives of public decision-makers. This research has theoretical, methodological and practical implications. On the theoretical level, it underlines the contingent nature of the effects of regulation through organisational change. From a methodological point of view, it proposes an innovative evaluative approach to identify the factors of this contingency. On a practical level, it provides the bearers of the organizational change thus regulated with recommendations in order to maximize their chances of success.


This event will be held in French.


A free lunch will be offered to registered participants.

Olivier Baly

Olivier Baly completed his doctorate in management sciences at the Centre de gestion scientifique (CGS) of the École des Mines de Paris from September 2014 to April 2019. It is in this context that he was led to evaluate the effects of the 2015-2017 Transformation Plan of the French health system. Previously a graduate of HEC Paris, Olivier Baly began working in the health sector in 2007, first as a consultant with Deloitte, then as a project manager at the Agence Nationale d'Appui à la Performance des établissements de santé et médico-sociaux français (ANAP). He has collaborated on several French-language books on performance management in health care institutions and regularly teaches this subject at several institutions - including the École des Hautes Études en Santé Publique (EHESP) and the Institut de Formation et de Recherche sur les Organisations Sanitaires et Sociales (IFROSS) at Lyon 3 University.
