Abstract [en]

Purpose: This article explores tactical planning potential within hospital departments. The study adopts two objectives: first, to develop a framework for tactical capacity planning in healthcare departments by identifying and structuring essential components for healthcare capacity management, and, second, to identify context-specific requirements and functionality demands on tactical planning processes within healthcare.

Methodology: A framework for tactical capacity planning was developed through a literature review. Additionally, an exploratory multiple-case study was performed, with cases from three Swedish hospital departments, which provide the opportunity to study framework applicability in its natural context.

Findings: Findings illustrate how an active tactical planning process can facilitate adjustments to capacity. However, the multiple-case study shows that there are contextual differences between departments depending on treatments and resources available that affect possible capacity adjustments, and how the planning process activities should be structured.

Originality: This project develops a framework for a tactical capacity-planning process adapted to healthcare provider contexts. By developing the framework based on the literature and tactical level planning processes within three Swedish hospital case study departments, we bridge gaps between theory and application regarding healthcare capacity planning.
