Abstract:This paper aims to research the transposition process of the Patients’ Rights Directive in the EU member states Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, and Denmark, to test whether additional costs for the healthcare systems and preferences of key actors caused a delayed or incorrect transposition. The respective transpositions of the directive among the cases will be analyzed on the basis of the misfit and actor-centered approach which will be applied within the framework of the Process Tracing Theory. The scope of the analysis will specifically focus on cost factors regarding the misfit approach, whilst a broader range of potential key actors will be considered for the actor-centered approach. The outcomes of the analysis suggest that an interplay of both aspects significant impacted the timeliness and degree of the respective transposition in the analyzed cases. In conclusion, several explanatory factors could be identified which contributed on the basis of misfit and actor-centered preferences to an either (in-)correct and/or timely transposition.
