Abstract

Because of the wide diversity among health care organizations, interorganizational relationships (IORs) among them are difficult to manage. This article describes three case studies that, taken together, suggest that IOR performance is related to IOR development processes. Specifically, IOR performance is related to the way managers process information to manage uncertainty and ambiguity.
