The healthcare system in France, as in other developed countries, is currently in the throes of major structural change, with many more such changes to come.
In terms of the care offered, it is possible to cite the rise of evidence-based medicine, and the fact that the traditional dichotomy between primary and secondary care systems has been replaced by ever-growing connections between the two.
Healthcare demands have been marked by the rise of "consumer" patients, upheld by law, who demand the right to play a more active role in their own healthcare management.
Can healthcare networks constitute an appropriate organisational response to these changes?
It is precisely this question that this work seeks to explore, providing answers obtained from various scientific enquiries conducted in a range of specialist fields related to sociology, economy and public health, and which are the result of a permanent partnership with healthcare practitioners working in healthcare networks.
