Abstract [en]

This chapter aims to present how Lean has been adopted by healthcare provider organizations in hospital and primary care settings, and to discuss the implications for quality of care. Could Lean be the management innovation that helps healthcare organizations tackle their current challenges? How is Lean adopted in healthcare? What are the opportunities and limitations of adopting a production-based system to an advanced service system such as healthcare? The findings and conclusions presented in this chapter are based on six years of research on the practices and outcomes of adopting Lean in hospital units and primary care centers in Sweden.
