Abstract

A transition towards a customer-orientated health care service system requires a broader socio-technical and paradigmatic change. The current service system includes established practices which make the paradigmatic changes appear difficult to health care professionals and customers. By using multi-level perspective, social innovation and a chronic care model, we have examined these factors and analysed the challenges from the perspective of two case studies: an integrated care system and the primary health care. As a result, new services, a shared vision, linked development activities, changes in the mindsets and empowering customers to manage their health and participate in developing activities are necessary.
