dc.description.abstractSince 2001, in Portugal, constant reforms in hospital management have accompanied the transformations in the management models applied to public administration, intending to ensure a higher quality of services and, simultaneously, a more significant economic efficiency. This study aims to analyse, for the period between 2012 and 2021, the economic and financial results (valuefor-money) of the PPP model, compared with the public management hospitals (PMH). It used a mixed research approach based on multiple case studies and archival research. As the main results, it was found that: i) the PPP model, applied to the health sector, appears to be advantageous, not only regarding the economic and financial results but also concerning the quality of service provision; and ii) despite the value-for-money generated by the PPP model, the lower operating costs and the superior performance in comparison with PMH, the government has permanently opted to revert from a PPP model to a PMH model. This study concluded that the hospital management model is instead seen as an instrumentalised political instrument than a management tool that could generate savings for the taxpayers. Several practical implications are presented.pt_PT
