Factors that hinder the implementation of process flow solutions related to the existing knowledge paradigm in healthcare
Paper i proceeding, 2010

This paper investigates factors that hinder the implementation of process flow solutions related to the existing knowledge paradigm in healthcare. There is a prevailing view of the knowledge areas that healthcare should master. Medical science is, of course, in focus but in order to create efficiency in production of care, there is a need of widening the traditional approach and being open to knowledge from the operations management field.Physicians play a significant role when implementing process flow solutions and they have a severe impact on how knowledge in operations management is developed and established in healthcare organizations. There is a challenge in having both physicians and nurses involved in patient flow improvement projects that are not explicitly connected to their research or specialist areas.
