External Stakeholders: They fall into three categories in their relationships to the organization: Those that provide inputs to organization. Those that compete with it. Those that have particular special interest. 11. Those that provide inputs to organization: The first category includes suppliers, patients and financial community. The relationships between the organization and these external stakeholders are a symbiotic one, as organization depends on them for its survival. In turn these stakeholders depend on the organization to take their outputs. The relationships between the organization and the stakeholders are one of mutual dependence. 12. Those that compete with it: The competitor stakeholder seeks to attract the focal organization dependents. The competitor may be direct competitor for patients (e.g. other hospital) or they may be competing for skilled personnel. 13. Those that have particular special interest: External stakeholders in third category are special interest group. These are the government regulatory agencies, private accrediting association, professional associations, labor union, the media and political action group.

Interface Stakeholders: Some stakeholders function on the interface between the organization and its environment. The major categories of interface stakeholders include the medical staff, the hospital board of trustees. The organization must provide sufficient inducements to continue to make appropriate contribution. The organization may offer professional autonomy, institutional prestige or political contacts, special services and benefits etc. 15. Internal Stakeholders Internal stakeholders almost entirely within the organization and typically include management, professional and non professional staff. Management attempts to provide internal stakeholders with sufficient inducements to gain continual contribution from them.

TYPES OF STAKEHOLDER RELATIONSHIP Mixed blessing stakeholder relationship Supportive stakeholder relationship Non supportive stakeholder relationship Marginal stakeholder relationship 33. Mixed blessing stakeholder relationship: With the mixed blessing stakeholder relationships the health care executive faces a situation in which the stakeholder rank high on both type of potential: threat and co-operation. Physicians-hospital relationships probably are the clear example of this type of relationship. Although physicians can and do provide many services that benefit hospitals, physicians also can threaten hospital because of their general control over admissions, the utilization and provision of different services, and the quality of care. 34. Supportive stakeholder relationship: The ideal stakeholder relationship is one that supports the organizations goals and actions. Managers wish all their relationships were of this type, such a stakeholder is low on potential threat but high on potential co-operation for e.g. the relationships of well managed hospital with its board of trustees, its manager, its staff employees, local community and nursing homes. 35. Non supportive stakeholder relationship: The most distressing stakeholder relationship for an organization and its managers are non supportive ones. They are high on potential for threat but low on potential for co-operation. Typical non supportive relationships for hospitals include competing hospitals, employee unions, the federal government, other govt. regulatory agencies the news media. 36. Marginal stakeholder relationship: The marginal stakeholder relationships are high on neither threatening nor co-operative potential. This type of relationships include professional associations for employees, volunteer groups in community etc, for a well run hospital. 37. STEPS IN THE MANAGEMENT OF STAKEHOLDERS: diagnose each stakeholderidentify type of stakeholderimplement strategies and evaluateclassify each stakeholder relationshipformulate generic strategies 38. TYPEIdentify type of stakeholder: Identify the major stakeholder and recognizes the function depicted to them. 39. Diagnose each stakeholder relationship: 1. Stakeholder potential for threat 2. Stakeholder potential for co-operation 40. Classify each stakeholder relationship Mixed blessing stakeholder relationship. Supportive stakeholder relationship.Non-supportive stakeholder relationship. Marginal stakeholder relationship. 41. Formulate strategies to reduce stakeholders potential to threat: Collaborate cautiously in the mixed blessing relationship: The best way to manage the mixed blessing relationship, high on the dimensions of both potential threat & potential co-operation may be cautious collaboration. The goal of strategy is to turn mixed blessing relationship into supportive relationships. 42. Involve trustingly relationship:inthesupportiveAs the supportive stakeholder poses a low potential for threat, they are mostly ignored by organization. However for maximizing the co-operation from this type of stakeholder, the health care executives can delegate authority to manager, involve in decision making and other plans. With this the manager will more likely to committed to achieve organizational objective. 43. Defend pro-actively in the non-supportive relationship: Stakeholder relationship with high threatening potential, but low co-operative potential is best managed by a proactive defensive strategy. Relationships with the federal govt. and indigent patients are non supportive stakeholder relationship for most health care organization. In stakeholder terms, a defensive strategy involves proactively preventing the stakeholder from imposing cost or other disincentives on the organization. 44. Monitor efficiently in marginal relationships: Monitoring helps to manage this marginal relationship in which the potential for both threat and co-operation is low. The marginal relationships are unstable; they can move into anyoneof therelationships.other three types of 45. Implementation of strategies and evaluation: The fifth step of management of stakeholder relationship is implementation of planned and articulated strategies.
