[Autom. eng. transl.] More than ten years after the issuance of the reform decrees of the National Health Service, the results of the so-called corporate process have not appeared to be entirely consistent with the expectations, so as to predict the need for a change of course with respect to the business model. . Nevertheless, the business model is inherent in the performance of the economic activity of production and consumption of health services and can contribute concretely to the achievement of the purpose of satisfying the health needs of citizens. The business logic, functional with respect to the achievement of institutional goals, takes on full significance with respect to the satisfaction of public needs as a guiding criterion for a rational and responsible use of available resources. On the other hand, on the one hand, an approach that interprets the business reality as mechanistically determined by prescriptive rules rather than by human behavior, operations, technical and economic processes aimed at researching the economics of management would seem to be still widespread. On the other hand, the pursuit of cost-effectiveness of management requires that the concrete areas of action reserved for the public health company are clearly defined and usefully employed by the health management. This work, employing the business-economic perspective, interprets the pursuit of economic management as a behavior that is expressed between constraints of various kinds and margins of autonomy that come from the healthcare company from the institutional model of reference. Within the areas of action granted, the pursuit of cost-effectiveness of management is favored by the use of tools and techniques of economic-corporate inspiration that guide towards the achievement of results consistent with the purpose of satisfying health needs and empowerment. economic value attributed to public health companies.
