Co-production in public services is an increasingly widespread and consolidated management practice in several Anglo-Saxon and northern European countries. Therefore, the topic is of great interest both for academics and political- institutional stakeholders. Healthcare is one of the elective and most studied areas. The present paper aims to provide a picture of the state of the art of the literature on co-production in healthcare, while identifying possible future research directions. More specifically, by using two bibliometric techniques, i.e. a performance analysis and a co-citation analysis, this study quantifies the research field and discuss its evolution, defines its intellectual structure and outlines the main recurrent themes. The investigation confirms a high scientific interest on the topic, mainly focused on two distinct disciplinary strands and a specific geographical location. It also outlines a relevant fragmentation in the field and the use of empirical methodologies often lacking clarity and robustness.

Keywords: Co-production, healthcare, co-creation, patient engagement, bibliometric analysis, citation and co-citation analysis.
