En webbapplikation för samordning av personal inom sjukhusvården (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Stress and heavy workloads are commonplace for those who work within Swedish healthcare; the issue is exacerbated further by the current shortage of qualified personnel. Therein arises a need for tools to help lessen the burden on the personnel. This report presents a prototype of a web application made for daily staff scheduling, tailored to the needs of the pediatric surgery department at Uppsala University Hospital. The aim of the project was to deliver a more flexible digital solution of daily staff coordination at the department. Two fundamentals of the application were that it should be easy to use and display informationclearly with few misunderstandings. The resulting prototype met the usability requirement, other than a few specific usability issues, and improved upon the readability of the contents displayed in comparison to the previous system. To further improve the system, work could be done to increase the efficiency with which tasks can be performed.

Abstract [sv]

Stress och tunga arbetsbördor hör till vardagen för den som jobbar inom svensk sjukvård, och problemet förvärras ytterligare av den rådande bristen på kvalificerad personal. Däri uppstår ett behov av verktyg som lätter på personalens belastning. Denna rapport presenterar en prototyp av en webbapplikation för dygnsmässig schemaläggning av personal, anpassad för barnoperationsavdelningen vid Uppsala akademiska sjukhus. Målet med projektet var att leverera en flexiblare digital lösning för avdelningens samordning av personal. Två fundamentala egenskaper hos applikationen var att den skulle vara enkel att använda samt visa upp informationen tydligt och med få missförstånd. Den resulterande prototypen uppfyllde kraven på användbarhet, med undantag för ett antal specifika problem, och förbättrade läsbarheten i jämförelse med det tidigare systemet. Det finns dock viss möjlighet för förbättring vad gäller effektiviteten uppgifter kan genomföras med.
