Abstract

The paper presents the findings of a case study research conducted within the Danish healthcare system aimed at analyzing how modularity is deployed in the process of delivery cancer care. Three cancer packages are presented into detailed describing the process of defining the diagnosis and treatment service. Customization is obtained by combining different components in the diagnosis phase (examinations) and different treatment options in the treating phase.
Findings show that the process of delivery cure for cancer is highly modularized and
customization is driven by cancer specificity (type, location, dimensions) and patient’s characteristics.
