Hospital improvement projects

Our fellows spend almost three months observing patients and staff at hospital departments all around Denmark. The outcome is numerous documented needs and many of those are structural needs, that are connected to how routines are executed internally in the hospitals. Our Open Innovation Officer helps the hospital departments choose a need to be solved and then set up a focused and accelerated improvement project. The project group consist of doctors, nurses, assistants, secretaries and more from the department. They develop new solutions, test, measure, improve and end up with recommendations for changes. The needs can be focused on workflow, organisation, communication and more and the results can be better work environment, patient safety and patient care.
