Swedish healthcare administration under fire:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The quality of Sweden's healthcare provision is being seriously damaged by the fact that the country's local authorities are both purchasers and providers of care, says the business weekly, Affarsvarlden. The problem lies in the political nature of the local authorities, which makes their dual role difficult to perform. They are responsible for containing healthcare costs, as well as for the quality of the care provided. The lack of competition in healthcare provision means that costs are too high and that patients have little or no choice in the care they receive, the article concludes.
