Interactive Governance in Health Care as the Determinant of Safety for Respecting Patients’ Rights
Purpose: The purpose of this research was to demonstrate a new model of interactive governance as an innovative tool in health care management in crisis situations. Project/Methodology/Approach: The analysis of the new model of interactive governance in the context of health care is based, among other things, on a descriptive model and certain elements of economic analysis of law, expressed in the pursuit of optimal efficiency from legal and social points of view. Findings: It was determined that there exists a correlation between health care and the public administration system. These interconnections comprise various elements reflecting a specific whole, which is relatively permanent and discernible among other parts of social reality. Those elements give rise to a specific network of various interconnections: legal, financial, economic, and trade. This results in a new model of governance based on a multi-level partnership of all public and non-public entities participating in governance. Practical implications: The presented results are important for all public authorities since they facilitate a more effective change design in the field of management related to health care. This is especially important in respect of organising and administering legally protected goods in the health care system, which should successfully protect public health and the health of individual patients in each state. Originality/value: This article presents the possible directions for change in health care management, which can contribute to improved effectiveness of activities undertaken by public authorities and the implementation of effective administration.
