The private health corporate in algeria: the emergency of a new actor in the healthcare system
In Algeria, the health system has been changing with the expansion of private healthcare for profit especially in its "private clinics", thus ending the hegemony over three decades of a public sector. A hybrid healthcare system has resulted where a public sector characterized by multiple failures seems to feed a growing private sector. The private health corporate as a new actor in the healthcare landscape represents organizational innovations which break away with the old operating system. We have noticed new ways of unusual forms of cooperation and new emerging coordination systems. Operation partitioned care system is replaced by an operation network in the relations between the various actors in the healthcare system according to affinities, sensitivities and financial interests.
