The Chinese healthcare system has evolved from a centralized, egalitarian public system (1949-1979) to one which can be characterized as public identity, private behavior, health system (1980-1999). With blurring of the distinction between public and private governing systems, high cost, high volume services are offered through excessive entrepreneurial practices. Regulating healthcare market has emerged as an essential issue. Without an effective state health financing tool, nor mature market institutions, China has adopted a management-based regulation but the absence of effective governance structure hinders effective regulation. To improve healthcare quality and contain costs, China will need to develop public financing tools to alter the current perverse incentives of provider. Government will also need to work with civil society organizations to develop tools governing clinical practice, such as clinical audit for risk management and hospital accreditation programs. To do so requires establishing arms-length governance mechanisms between health departments and hospitals, and corporate governance structures within hospitals.
Hospitals have a long history of forming partnerships with religious based organizations to ensure that patients have access to spiritual care professionals. One type of partnership is the Hospital-Community Collaborative (HCC). An intentional partnership is formed to share financing and governing (decision-making) of the hospital spiritual care program. Many Hospital-Community Collaborative (HCC) arrangements currently exist yet there is little research or information on how a community based organization can form an effective partnership with a healthcare institution. The goal of all partnerships is a win-win situation where both partners have a voice in decision-making. As healthcare continues to face fiscal restraint we need access to sustainable models of spiritual care. Partnership between hospital and community is a creative and viable model and may be most applicable in smaller or rural based hospitals. This book is the dissertation research on four HCC s in Ontario, Canada and asked the question What enables them to work? Information is also included on the variety and prevalence of partnership arrangements in Ontario (20%).

The complexities of the twenty-first century demand a new governance and management arrangement that fosters effectiveness and efficiency in addressing public problems or concerns through integrated engagement of all relevant state and non-state stakeholders. The new governing arrangement is certainly necessary in view of apparent inadequacy of top-down bureaucratic governance alone in fulfilling the public purpose which is partly due to the limited stakeholder participation in collective decision making and/or implementation. Collaborative governance has thus emerged as a promising alternative to traditional management in addressing contemporary complex problems. This research draws on health services collaborative governance experience of two Councils in South Florida as a case of effective collective impact. The findings based on extensive qualitative and quantitative data suggest the Councils are more similar than different in variables of collaborative governance. The study highlights essential rudiments for collective problem solving and serves as an enlightening resource for scholars, policymakers, students, and practitioners of public and healthcare administration.
