Interest group impact on E-health implementation in Latvia
Rīga Stradiņš University, Riga, Latvia
Democratic state governance should provide the society with mechanisms to impact policy development and implementation. Society members are presented by interest groups that can use internal and external ways to have impact on the government and reform implementation processes.
This article represents research that was made on E-health implementation in Latvia – identifying main obstacles and reasons of delayed implementation, and analyses active interest groups and their impact on the implementation process.
The research results showed that the main reason of delayed implementation was poor governance from the responsible authority and lack of interest group involvement in the reform development and implementation process.
Key words: E-health / Interest Groups / Healthcare Reforms / Change Implementation
