Sammanfattning: Title: Future Home Based Care - An Evaluation of Possible Distribution Networks for Region Skåne Authors: Victoria Gustafsson and Sofia Håkansdotter Supervisor LTH: Andreas Norrman, Professor Engineering Logistics, Faculty of Engineering (LTH) at Lund University Supervisor Region Skåne: Helena Rappe, Production analyst, Meals, Textiles, Morgue, Warehouse & Distribution, Regionservice, Region Skåne and Henrik Sevandersson, Project leader, Meals, Textiles, Morgue, Warehouse & Distribution, Regionservice, Region Skåne Background: Sweden is today experiencing significant demographic changes with a population that is quickly growing in numbers and with a growing share of elders. This puts high demands on health care, and home based care has been identified as a solution to decrease the lack of hospital beds. Home based care however puts high demands on distribution, an evaluation of different distribution alternatives is hence necessary. Purpose: Based on trends in home based care and distribution, evaluate possible solutions for a distribution network for Region Skåne, focusing on the period between year 2018 and 2040. Research questions: R1: What trends will mainly affect home based care and distribution within home based care until year 2040? R2: What criterias should be used to evaluate a distribution network within home based care until year 2040? R3: Evaluate the suggested distribution networks from the perspective of year 2040. Area of reference: Supply chains in the healthcare sector operate under dynamic conditions and become increasingly complex, which separates them from commercial supply chains. With the right management, an effective supply chain can reduce the risk of errors, reduce waiting time as well as time spent in healthcare facilities, and reduce operational costs. To study the future, multidisciplinary methods are often used to review change mechanisms and seek a wide range of opportunities. This is often done by developing different scenarios. Method: The study is based on a method for designing and evaluating distribution networks in five steps. Within this method a literature review and a mapping of Region Skåne’s current distribution within home based care was conducted. In addition to this a survey was sent out to 107 respondents, of which 31 answered, and a workshop with 12 experts was conducted. Conclusion: The five identified trend areas; Technologies for information and communication, Customer/patient focus, Technologies for process efficiency, Sustainable logistics and Strategies for business development, will all affect Home based care and its distribution. The most important thing for Region Skåne in the future is to work with cooperation and coordination. The issues of future Home based care does not solely lie in the physical flow but the question must be raised to supply chain management.
