Ferlie E, Baeza JI, Addicott R, Mistry R. The governance of pluralist health care systems: An initial review and typology. Health Serv Manage Res. 2017;30(2):61-71.
We here argue that study of governance systems within increasingly pluralist health care systems needs to be broadened beyond traditionally public sector orientated literature. We develop an initial typology of multiple governance systems within the English health care sector and derive exploratory questions to inform future empirical investigation. We add to existing literature by considering the coexistence of - and possible tensions between - multiple governance systems in a pluralised health and social care system.
