Abstract

An increase in health spending in Indonesia does not simultaneously increase general hospital revenues. To overcome this phenomenon, state-owned hospitals as public health service organizations need to reduce costs and increase revenues without reducing their quality to achieve efficiency and effectiveness. For these two main purposes, lean service is used by hospitals to eliminate activities that do not have added value. In this context, this study analyzes the value stream of the brachytherapy income cycle, creates a hierarchy of activities, and eliminates activities that do not have value-added. The research findings are based on service activities provided at Installation Y Hospital X in 2019 and 2020. The findings show that 77% of activities are activities that have value-added and are essential (Column A), but there are two activities that fall to column B (value-added activity but not essential). Six other activities are included in column C, those are activities that do not have value-added but are essential activities. Elimination and time reduction of 2 activities in the scheduling phase by implementing a computerized scheduling system can reduce costs by ±92 million rupiahs a year. Activities in column C or the patient transfer phase can be improved by implementing monitoring and evaluation for time efficiency. The findings of the current study are based on Department Y of X Hospital’s service activity to its patients from 2019 to 2021.
