The main findings are: 1) the learning, coordinating, and integrating capabilities are associated with product/service and process innovations in academic hospitals; 2) the learning and integrating capabilities are associated with product/service and process innovations in community hospitals; 3) the barrier internal resources contention act as a moderator between the dynamic capabilities and innovations. This paper concludes by outlining propositions for additional research that would contribute to a more complete understanding of relationship between dynamic capabilities and different types of innovations in hospitals setting.
