Private providers impact on the municipalmonitoring in the municipalities of Linköpingand Eskilstuna : A comparative case study ofthe presence of the Act on System of Choice inthe Public Sector and its impact on themonitoring and evaluation of the home careservice provided by the municipalities. (English)
Sweden has during a long time gone through a change to a higher rate of private providers in welfare services. Due to this change the Swedish government, in 2013, conducted an investigation regarding the monitoring of private providers. The investigation presented a suggestion of a new law to encourage municipalities to have a more structured monitoring. The investigation also proclaimed a need to investigate further how the law could include even the services provided by the municipalities themselves. The investigation saw a need to make the law more neutral between the both forms of providers.
The purpose of this paper is to compare the two municipalities Linköping and Eskilstuna and the presence of the Act on System of Choice in the Public Sector and how that affect the monitoring and evaluation of the home care services that is provided by the municipalities themselves.
The method chosen for this paper is a comparative case study. In both cases people with central professions have been interviewed and documents related to monitoring have been studied. Given this material, an analysis and a discussion about the results have been made. The conclusion of this is that there is a difference in the monitoring and evaluation of home care service between the both municipalities. The results indicate that the municipality with a higher rate of private providers have a more thorough and structured monitoring of both private providers and the services provided by the municipality itself. The municipality which have had only one private provider in home care services do not use the same material for monitoring both private and municipal providers.
