Unit Analysis – A method for analysing improvement potentials at floor level in hospital units
Paper i proceeding, 2014
Productivity at floor level must increase to cope with increasing health care demands without increasing the costs. Previous studies have shown that there are good potentials to improve many aspects of the work performed at hospital units. The Unit Analysis method has been developed to facilitate a systematic analysis and documentation of improvement potentials at hospital units (departments). The method is carried out during one day by two analysts. The unit analysis method is still in development stage and validation studies have been performed at seven different units at Skaraborg hospital.
