Abstract

The doctrine on the management of the health-care sector has mainly considered cooperation and competition to be opposite models. However, several recent studies of the private sector have stressed the positive effects of balancing competitive and cooperative stimuli in inter-firm elationships. Since many public health-care sectors are often characterized by the presence of both cooperative and competitive forces, this explorative analysis is aimed at identifying the possible determinants of these stimuli and analyzing the likely results of the interaction between these forces within a network of health-care trusts. A better understanding of how simultaneous cooperation and competition impact one another could help regulatory bodies to avoid implementing policies that could produce inconsistent results.
