To determine reasons behind unequal health care provisions in the Netherlands, questionnaire data were obtained from 85 hospital directors; about 66% of the hospital problems they cited are related to the difference in influence that various health care organizations have on the government. The process method is used to determine the amount of influence per organization. A multivariate explanation is given for differences in influence among general hospitals. A theoretical model for determining differences in influence is tested using LISREL VII. Analysis reveals that the government is unaffected by the type of hospital, management, & socioeconomic context. Rather, the amount of influence is linked to the number of influence attempts. 2 Tables, 2 Figures, 32 References. Adapted from the source document.
