Improving antibiotics handling through the use of lean methods

Abstract [en]

With the use methods originating from lean philosophy, the thesis focuses on improving health care in the specific process of mixing antibiotics. Value stream maps will be used for describing the current state of mixing antibiotics at an infection department. When viewing mixing processes from a lean perspective, all processes did not give value for the customer, in this case the patient. Through the use of different lean methods, improvements on the current state has been made. These improvements will establish the future state, a description of improved processes. 

Conclusions drawn is that the problem can be divided into two categories, flow of information and movements. A machine were designed as a solution to the problems found in the current state. Both the flow of information and movements can then to some extent be automated, creating more value for the patient.
