At the End of the Funnel: Translation of Improvement Approaches in Healthcare
This thesis builds on a participative, longitudinal single-case study of implementation of value-based healthcare to the context of psychiatry, using qualitative methods and elements of action research. Focusing on the aspects of content, context, and process of the implementation, a model is proposed for how IAs can be viewed and handled as moldable concepts that are translated into a context-dependent local management model in the target organization. The thesis suggests that both practitioners and scholars could benefit from actively considering the contexts in which IAs are applied, including preexisting IAs and attitudes among organization members, to better grasp the complexity of healthcare management.
