Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund

Svensk sjukvård har idag bland de bästa behandlingsresultaten i Europa, men trots det förs diskussionen om sjukvården ofta i negativa ordalag. I ett försök att förbättra synen på verksamheten och bli mer effektiva har sjukvården i Sverige ofta använt sig av kommersiella

modeller, modellerna har dock behövt anpassas för att fungera i sjukvårdens miljö. En av de senaste kommersiella modellerna som nu införs i den svenska sjukvården är Lean Healthcare,som är sjukvårdens version av Toyotas produktionsfilosofi Lean Production. En stor del av

tidigare forskning på området har behandlat Lean Production men lite finns att tillgå som handlar om Lean Healthcare. Den här studien är ett bidrag till att utöka kunskapen om Lean Healthcare i Sverige.

Syfte

Syftet med den här studien är att beskriva hur Lean-filosofin fungerar i den svenska sjukvården samt att göra en jämförelse mellan Lean Production och andra kommersiella modeller som tidigare har införts i den svenska sjukvården.

Genomförande

Med hjälp av intervjuer på tre svenska sjukvårdsenheter har en fallstudie med fokus på Lean Production och Lean Healthcare genomförts.

Resultat

Resultatet av studien visar att Lean Healthcare, i likhet med tidigare modeller, har krävt anpassningar för att fungera i sjukvårdens kontext. Det har bland annat visat sig i att de undersökta enheterna endast har infört vissa delar av filosofin.

Background

Swedish healthcare has today among the best treatment results in Europe, despite that the discussion about healthcare in Sweden is often pursued in negative terms. In an attempt to enhance the opinion about the organization and try to become more efficient, Swedish

healthcare has often used commercial models, however, the models has needed adjustments to function in the healthcare environment. One of the latest models that now are implemented in Swedish healthcare is Lean Healthcare which is the healthcare version of Toyota´s production

philosophy Lean Production. Much of the previous research has focused on Lean Production but little is to be found about Lean Healthcare. This study is a contribution to extend the knowledge about Lean Healthcare in Sweden.

Aim

The aim with this study is to describe how the Lean philosophy functions in Swedish healthcare and to compare Lean Production with other commercial models that earlier have been implemented in Swedish healthcare.

Completion

Through interviews on three healthcare units in Sweden a case study has been conducted with focus on Lean Production and Lean Healthcare.

Findings

The findings of this study show that Lean Healthcare, in resemblance with earlier commercial models, has needed adjustments to function in the healthcare context. It has also shown that the examined units only have implemented some of the parts of the philosophy.
