Research description

My doctoral project takes off from the national initiative (2012-2016) to enhance the use of quality registries for quality improvement and patient interaction. The first study investigates the strategies of a national support structure that was part of the initiative. Study number two examines the conditions for use of nine different quality registries. The third study explores an organization that is built to work with improvement and patient interaction – where other work approaches and digital tools are used to interact with patients and develop care. In the last study we investigate patients’ perspectives on development of one’s own care and at the unit level.

Altogether, the thesis illustrates a complex picture of quality development where access to data is insufficient unless use is supported by work approaches. Also, a non-dimensional view of quality without looking into processes on meso- and micro level is not enough.
