Abstract [en]

Frail elderly people refer to multi-diseased and vulnerable patients in need of medication and healthcare. These patients require healthcare from several different healthcare organizations, including hospital care, primary care, and municipal care services. This situation is challenging the capacity of healthcare organizations to manage inter-professional collaboration for person-centered care. This paper aims to identify challenges associated with collaboration between different healthcare organizations, related to the use of IT systems in the daily work practice. The paper was based on a qualitative study, which included three focus group interviews, each lasting for two hours. Each focus group consisted of a hospital physician, a primary care physician, a hospital nurse, a primary care nurse, a municipal home care nurse or an assistant officer, a physical or occupational therapist, and a family member representative. The interviews were analyzed with thematic analysis. Challenges identified in the study include insufficient information exchange, inconsistencies in communication, differences in the use of IT systems, and deficient coordination. The work processes that aim to promote collaboration between different healthcare organizations need to be better organized, and the use of IT systems needs to be better aligned.

Abstract [en]

Health information technology has become one of the most important resources for the development and improved efficiency of healthcare services. Frail elderly patients is a growing group of people that that requires healthcare. Different care providers have to participate in healthcare planning for frail elderly patients to ensure that the patient is provided with suitable care in his or her home. The use of video conferencing offers great potential for improving the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare planning sessions, as well as reducing travel expenses. This paper reports from a qualitative study aiming at identifying and analyzing attitudes of hospital professionals, when using video conferencing for healthcare planning. The result indicates that the attitude toward using video conference tools is exclusively positive. The intention to use is high, due to the ability of the technology to make professionals ’ work more efficient, and that the technology can improve patient care.

Abstract [en]

Aims: Frail elderly patients who have multiple illnesses do not fare well in modern health care systems, mainly due to a lack of care planning and flawed communication between health professionals in different care organisations. This is especially noticeable when patients are discharged from hospital. The aim of this study was to explore health care professionals’ experience of obstacles and opportunities for collaboration. Methods: Health professionals were invited to participate in three focus groups, each consisting of a hospital physician, a primary care physician, a hospital nurse, a primary care nurse, a municipal home care nurse or an assistant officer, a physical or occupational therapist and a patient or a family member representative. These individual people were then asked to discuss the obstacles and opportunities for communication between themselves and with the patients and their relatives when presented with the case report of a fictitious patient. Content analysis was used to identify categories. Results: Several obstacles were identified for effective communication and care planning: insufficient communication with patients and relatives; delayed collaboration between care-givers; the lack of an adequate responsible person for care planning; and resources not being distributed according to the actual needs of patients. The absence of an overarching responsibility for the patient, beyond organisational borders, was a recurring theme. These obstacles could also be seen as opportunities. Conclusions: Obstacles for collaboration were found on three levels: societal, organisational and individual. As health care professionals are well aware of the problems and also see solutions, management for health care should support employees’ own initiatives for changes that are of benefit in the care of frail elderly patients with multiple illnesses.

Abstract [en]

To improve and strengthen regional development is often subject of political decisions. This is thesituation within the European Union, to increase innovation in SMEs. SMEs need access to knowledge,competence and collaboration, in order to increase their opportunities to develop competitiveness inproducts higher up in the value chain. The increasing rate of change in society also creates needs ofdecreasing the time from knowledge development to ready products to the market. Ongoing evaluationis prevalent in many research and development projects today in order to follow up the intended results.The ongoing evaluation could contribute to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of a specificinnovation project by highlight areas of improvement and needs of development. The purpose of thispaper is to analyze how collaboration within research and innovation can be evaluated, using a specificinnovation project as an example. Qualitative methods have been used for the data collection andanalysis, based on documents, interviews and participation in various activities. An intervention theory iscreated, as interpreted and structured based on information from documents and interviews. Theintervention theory should be further refined, and could be used to select important aspects of theinnovation project for the further evaluation. The intervention theory can be used to evaluate the causesand effects, and if the innovation project is reaching its intended final achievements and results.

Abstract [en]

The aging population of the western world poses a medical challenge for the society of today and of the future. In hospitals, healthcare professionals manage health care with the objective to provide care of high quality using the limited available resources. The decision-making in production and capacity planning decisions requires coordination and management of knowledge in different hierarchical levels and in different time-frames. Thus, this knowledge management is also needed between various health care services within a hospital, as well as with other healthcare providers, at a horizontal level. This paper is based on a qualitative study, conducted as a case study at a hospital in western Sweden. Eleven managers together with their production controllers were interviewed. This paper aims to analyze the challenges the health care at the hospital face related to the knowledge management in the production and capacity planning and control of activities performed. The difficulties found refers to limitations in knowledge management according to three different themes identified. These themes are the influence of political decisions, coordination and participation, and methods and IT-systems.

Abstract [sv]

För ett drygt år sedan inleddes #metoo-rörelsen, vilken påminner oss om att det finns brister i samhället även om allt ser bra ut på ytan. Mycket talar för att #metoo inte är en övergående fluga. Det handlar inte om en samordnad aktion med ett tydligt mål och det finns heller ingen ledare för rörelsen. #metoo är en självorganiserad rörelse, ett sätt att synliggöra det som under snart sagt hela mänsklighetens historia har förtigits, förnekats och bagatelliserats trots att alla har vetat. Den här rapporten belyser #metoo-rörelsens inverkan på organisationer ur ett managementperspektiv. Vi är intresserade av fenomenet #metoo-management, vilket vi definierar som organisationers arbete med att förebygga och hantera sexuella trakasserier som en följd av #metoo-rörelsen. Det första syftet med rapporten är att ta reda på om #metoo-management förekommer. Det andra syftet är att utforska hur organisationer arbetar med #metoo-management. Det tredje syftet är att förklara varför organisationer väljer att arbeta med #metoo- management på olika sätt. Baserat på intervjuer med företrädare för tio organisationer – i flera fall väldigt olika – har vi konstaterat att #metoo-rörelsen har gett upphov till #metoo- management. Mer precist handlar #metoo-management om flera olika åtgärder och aktiviteter. Organisationer har återupprepat och preciserat sina programförklaringar mot sexuella trakasserier. Programmen har fått förnyad spridning på arbetsplatserna och ytterligare åtgärder för programefterlevnad har vidtagits. Procedurer för klagomålshantering har utvecklats, utbildningar har initierats och riskfaktorer har identifierats och reducerats. Inte minst har förekomsten av problem med sexuella trakasserier inventerats. Något överraskande kunde vi notera att det inte fanns något exempel på att programmen mot sexuella trakasserier utvärderades och att det saknades planer för att minska beroendeförhållanden mellan chefer och anställda i de organisationer där dessa var betydande. Det är viktigt att betona att det finns betydande skillnader mellan organisationer i hur intensivt arbetet med #metoo-management har bedrivits. Skillnaderna förefaller bero på flera olika faktorer. En är att incidensen av sexuella trakasserier är olika och en annan att organisationer gör olika bedömningar av hur stor skada uppdagade fall skulle göra på arbetsgivarvarumärket. Ytterligare förklaringar till intensiteten i arbetet är skillnader i hur ambitiöst arbetet har varit innan #metoo- rörelsen och att det i vissa organisationer finns större kunskaper om riskfaktorer än i andra. Slutligen förefaller organisationens storlek och synlighet spela roll genom att de är mer påpassade och därför har större anledning att undvika problem som väcker negativ uppmärksamhet

Abstract [en]

Just over a year ago the #metoo movement began, which is a reminder that there are faults in society even if everything looks fine on the surface. There are many signs that #metoo is not a passing phenomenon. This is not a coordinated action with a clear goal, nor is there any one leader of the movement. The #metoo movement is self-organized, a way to make visible what over basically all of human history has been silenced, denied and trivialized, even though everyone has known about it. This report takes a look at the #metoo movement's impact on organisations from a management perspective. We are interested in the phenomenon of "#metoo management", which we define as organisations' work to prevent and deal with sexual harassment (or assault) as a result of the #metoo movement. The primary purpose of the report is to find out if #metoo management exists. The second purpose is to investigate how organisations work with #metoo management. A third purpose is to explain why organisations choose to work with #metoo management in different ways. Based on interviews with representatives of ten organisations, in several cases quite different, we have determined that the #metoo movement has indeed given rise to #metoo management. More precisely, #metoo management refers to a number of different measures and activities. Organisations have restated and specified their policies about sexual harassment. The programs have been given renewed distribution at workplaces and additional measures for program compliance have been taken. Procedures for complaint processing have been developed, trainings have been initiated and risk factors have been identified and reduced. Not least, the occurrence of problems with sexual harassment has been quantified. Somewhat surprisingly, we noted that there was no example that the programs against sexual harassment were evaluated and that plans were lacking for reducing dependency relationships between supervisors and employees in the organisations where these were significant. It is important to emphasize that there are significant differences between organisations in how intensively the work with #metoo management has been pursued. The differences seem to depend on several different factors. One is that the incidence of sexual harassment varies, and another is that organisations make varying assessments of how much damage publicized cases would have on the employer's brand. Additional explanations for the intensity of the work are differences in how ambitious the process was prior to the #metoo movement, and that in certain organisations there is greater awareness of risk factors than in others. Finally, the organisation's size and visibility appear to play a role in that those that are more closely monitored have greater reason to avoid problems that attract negative attention.

Abstract [sv]

Strategiska samverkansarenor utvecklas vid lärosäten i syftet att bedriva en strukturerad och strategisk samverkan med externa parter. Omvärldens, dvs de externa parternas, perspektiv och roller är centrala i utvecklingen av samverkansarenor. Hur externa parters perspektiv blir tydliggjorda och omhändertagna vid utveckling av samverkansarenor behöver vi mer kunskap om. Det finns därför ett behov av att utveckla kunskap om omvärldens roll för arenor och för utvecklingen av arenor, samt för hur lärosäten ska kunna utveckla samverkansförmågan. Att utveckla strategier för hur samverkan kan påverka lärosätet, ända ner till den enskilda läraren och forskaren samt studenterna, är viktigt för att öka nyttan av och genomslagskraften av en samverkansarena. Det är viktigt att synliggöra nyttan för varje enskild part vid en samverkan.En samverkansarena omfattar samverkan både inom utbildning och forskning, samt integrationen där emellan. Framgångsrika styr- och organisationsformer samtarbete med strategier för samverkansarenor behöver utvecklas. Parternas möjlighetatt påverka samverkansarenans strategier är värdefull, så att dessa strategier kan harmoniera med parternas egna strategier, vilket är en förutsättning för alla parter att engagera sig i en samverkansarena. Att varje part upplever en nytta med samverkansarena är en förutsättning för en fungerande arena. Arbetet med styrformer och implementering av strategier i samverkansarenor pågår vid olika lärosäten. En verktygslåda behöver utvecklas för hur strategier, styrformer, organisering och struktur kan utformas, som sedan kan tillämpas på det sätt som passar den enskilda samverkansarenan bäst. Ansvar och resurser behöver tydliggöras för att den operativa samverkan ska kunna genomföras, och för att mötesplatser och andra tvärgående kanaler inom lärosätet ska kunna öppnas upp och användas. Syftet med detta abstract är att diskutera aspekter för hur en samverkansarena kan utformas för att lärosätet ska uppnå 1) ökad kvalitet i utbildningar ur ett AIL-perspektiv genom bl a ett ökat antal projektarbeten och examensarbeten som genomförs i samverkan, 2) ökad attraktionskraft som lärosäte och arbetsplats som rekryterar både studenter och personal, 3) ökad externfinansiering för lärosätet, 4) ökad konkurrenskraft hos de deltagande externa parterna, 5) ökad möjlighet för SME att delta i branschöverskridande samverkansprojekt kopplat till samhällsutmaningar, samt 6) höjd kunskapsnivå, ökad kunskapsspridning och ökad kompetens i det omgivande samhället.

Abstract [en]

The fast development of the IT in the society of today has led to that more SMEs rely on ERP systems. Especially, IT has facilitated the management of the flow of goods within and between organizations and have made lead times more effective and also have increased the overview of the flow of goods. This will help SMEs obtain a competitive advantage. The aim of this paper is analyze the factors influencing SMEs adoption of ERP systems. A qualitative case study is conducted within a company which both is engaged in manufacturing and project work. The company runs service projects for its customers and at the same time they produce articles both for sale and for use within the service projects. An ERP system can also serve as an overall system for the administration, the production and inventory management in the company. However, there are important factors to take into account in the adoption phase, related to the technological infrastructure, the organizational challenges as well as environmental relations in order to decide on an implementation on an ERP system. It is of a critical importance that the SME really change their routines in order to follow the processes implemented in the ERP system. Otherwise, the company runs the risk to be stuck in its previous and ineffective inventory management processes, regardless of investments in the ERP system and the technological infrastructure.

Abstract [en]

The ageing population of the western world poses a medical challenge for society of today and of the future. Frail elderly people are described as multi-diseased and vulnerable patients who are in need of medication and hospital care. These patients require healthcare from several different caregivers within the health services, including hospital-based acute care services, primary care services and community care services. This situation will challenge the capacity of the health services to manage inter-professional collaboration for patient-centered care. The aim of this paper is to identify challenges that caregivers within the health services face in relation to the IT systems that are used in their daily work practice, in their collaborative work and for sharing of information and knowledge. The paper is based on a qualitative study which includes three focus group interviews that were conducted within a healthcare organization in the western part of Sweden. The focus groups consisted of all types of professionals who can be found within each of the included healthcare organizations, as well as representatives of relatives of frail elderly people. Each one of the three focus group interviews conducted lasted for two hours. Afterwards, the interviews were analyzed with thematic analysis. The study identifies challenges within the following themes related to the use of IT systems: insufficient information, incoherent communication, differing uses of IT systems and deficient coordination.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund Flera svenska rapporter visar att de mest sjuka äldre ofta far illa på grund av bristande samordning och oklar ansvarsfördelning mellan olika behandlingsinstanser. Primärvården, hemtjänsten och den kommunala hemsjukvården anses i otillräcklig omfattning ta över ansvaret efter utskrivningen av de sjuka äldre från sjukhuset. Svenska erfarenheter stämmer väl med vad man funnit i flera internationella studier: sjukvården är illa rustad för att möta de mest sjuka äldres komplexa behov av vård och omsorg.
