Organizing complex practices in health care
The current organization of health care is challenged by the development of new technologies and new methods. Among the driving forces behind these changes there are strong expectations of improved treatment methods and effective use of resources, but for these expectations to be realized it requires not just better adapted facilities and new technologies, it also requires new ways of organizing work. One example of such a development is Hybrid Operating Rooms. The hybrid concept implies that multiple methods for diagnosis and treatment are combined for the benefit for high-risk patients suffering from complex problems. The study shows how work is organized and contribute to improving our knowledge of how materiality matters in the organizing of complex practices.
