As a paradigm, network governance is trumping “public administration” or traditional models of government. Policies taking a network governance approach seem to have a greater chance of goal
attainment. Is network governance in health care policy a means of bridging the ideological divide, what with national health policy initiatives tripping on partisan hurdles? One example of network governance (as expounded by Stephen Goldsmith and William Eggers in their 2004 book) at the state level is high-risk health insurance programs (HRPs).
