Abstract: This analysis aims at contributing to the debate by exploring recent changes in French public hospitals. It will try to show how a new financing system can entail deep changes inside the management architecture. The structuring of the management control function is still in gestation. In most hospitals surveyed, this function is still at its early stages. There is still a long way for management control in acquiring a real legitimacy, especially from professionals. A key to success lies in the ability of institutions to recruit (and retain) a staff up to the current stakes, both able to overcome technical difficulties of the hospital management (including the T2A) and place themselves in intermediation between medical and management logics.
