Abstract

A debate is currently raging about the future of health care in the United States. Some parties want more government intervention in the delivery of service, while others advocate the privatization of the health care system. In this discussion, however, an important dimension has been overlooked. What has been obscured is the impact of democratization on social service organizations. Accordingly, this article advances some preliminary notions about the democratization of care. The authors illustrate in their discussion how knowledge bases, social relationships, and service agencies can be democratized.
