Purpose and goal
The purpose and objectives of the project have been met. The system analysis shows that representatives of companies, the Swedish health care and researchers are experiencing a number of obstacles to the development of precision medicine linked to state governance. The analysis indicates that a changed state governance could contribute to increased efficiency in relation to political goals. The project has resulted in a knowledge base for the development of state governance. The project has also contributed to the Swedish Financial Management Agency´s method for system analysis.
Expected results and effects
The project´s expected results and effects were largely achieved. Some state agencies were unable to attend the workshops that were arranged as parts of the system analysis. Thus, not all state agencies gained increased knowledge of each other and the frameworks set by the state governance for their activities on these occasions. On the other hand, a knowledge base which contains the results of the workshops and was sent out broadly to relevant actors. As another result of the project, the Swedish Financial Management Agency has increased knowledge about how systems can be analysed.
Planned approach and implementation
Three workshops were carried out within the system analysis. The first workshop aimed at developing a method that was then used at the other two workshops. The subsequent two workshops brought together representatives of the industry, state agencies, the Government Offices, researchers and the Swedish health care. A knowledge base had been drafted - through an interview and document study that was further developed by the workshops’ participants. The result was a knowledge base for the development of state governance which was delivered to the Government Offices.
