I believe you can find some network application on
studies of competition between hospitals via Min-Woong
Sohn's works, at:
Dr. Sohn also has one article in Social Networks,
trying to improve the operationalization of the idea

example. You can find some other more conventional
measures like Burt's and others in it as well.
