Abstract [en]

Introduction: This article deals with hybrid persons combining medical professionalism and management for handling institutional complexity and change in primary care. Primary care and identity are in transition in many western countries, in Sweden emphasized by the 2007 reform for patient choice and competition. Research has shown that embedded hybrid actors, familiar and socialized in a field and to its logics, tend to be influential for handling complexity and change. Yet hydrids and their enactment in primary care is an underexplored area.

Aim: The aim is to contribute to our understanding of hybrid persons and how they are combining medical professionalism and management in primary care, while managing complexity and change.

Material and methods: In a case study of six successful primary healthcare centers, public and private, covering 56 interviews and observations with various professions, two medical managers ‘hybrids’ showed to be particularly interesting. These were analyzed in-depth, including analysis of staff’s and colleagues’ experiences and contrasted by other managers and hybrids. For the analysis we draw on institutional logic perspective (Thornton, Occasion & Lounsbury 2012) in order to capture preconditions as well as enactment of such change agents.

Results/conclusions: The hydrids contributed to innovation, creativity and learning in their primary care centres. At their workplace, coherence and a good ambience coexisted with feelings of high work pace and lacking role clarity among the multidisciplinary staff. Categorized in line with McGivern and colleagues(2015) term as ‘willing hybrids’, the persons studied revealed high ambitions to challenge existing institutional order giving professionalism new forms, while seeking to innovate practices and division of work among healthcare staff in primary care. By doing so the hybrids integrated professionalism and managerialism and were influential in reframing problems and solutions, which aligned several logics at play. However several obstacles related to professional as well as bureaucratic issues appeared along the way.
