Health IT is a major field of investment in support of healthcare delivery, but patients and professionals tend to have systems imposed upon them by organizational policy or as a result of even higher policy decision. And, while many health IT systems are efficient and welcomed by their users, and are essential to modern healthcare, this is not the case for all. Unfortunately, some systems cause user frustration and result in inefficiency in use, and a few are known to have inconvenienced patients or even caused harm, including the occasional death. This book seeks to answer the need for better understanding of the importance of robust evidence to support health IT and to optimize investment in it; to give insight into health IT evidence and evaluation as its primary source; and to promote health informatics as an underpinning science demonstrating the same ethical rigour and proof of net benefit as is expected of other applied health technologies. The book is divided into three parts: the context and importance of evidence-based health informatics; methodological considerations of health IT evaluation as the source of evidence; and ensuring the relevance and application of evidence. A number of cross cutting themes emerge in each of these sections. This book seeks to inform the reader on the wide range of knowledge available, and the appropriateness of its use according to the circumstances. It is aimed at a wide readership and will be of interest to health policymakers, clinicians, health informaticians, the academic health informatics community, members of patient and policy organisations, and members of the vendor industry.

"In a major if not the keystone contribution to the literature on system evaluation, James G. Anderson, Carolyn E. Aydin, and Stephen J. Jay have edited a volume that reviews a number of evaluation approaches and applications." --Physicians and Computers "It has been a great pleasure to read your book, Evaluating Health Care Information Systems. There is a great need for a book like this in Europe, and I think it will be useful to many. We have just started a new program on health care informatics at Aalborg University, and we are planning to use your book in this program." --Christian Nohr, Department of Development and Planning, Research Group Technology and Society, Aalborg University Health care organizations have become increasingly reliant on information systems. They have also become more aware of the potential pitfalls when integrating a computer system into a complex organizational structure. From cost factors to personnel problems, evaluating the impact of information systems requires an understanding of behavioral processes as well as computer technology. Drawing on more than a decade of multi-method research, Evaluating Health Care Information Systems provides a guide for evaluating the impact of computerized information systems on the structure and function of health care organizations. Chapters provide a practical overview of established research guidelines for sampling, data collection procedures and instruments, and analytic techniques. Utilizing a pluralistic approach, this practical volume also includes organizational evaluation methods such as direct observations, archival data use, interviewing strategies, survey research, experimental research methods, simulation, social network, and cost-benefit analysis. Well-known contributors from sociology, anthropology, psychology, communication, and the administrative and health sciences provide both a conceptual and methodological framework. This timely volume is an essential tool for students and scholars who recognize the increasing importance of studying and evaluating the use and impact of information systems. It is also an invaluable guide for professionals such as computer system developers, administrators, and health care policy analysts.

Rapid progress in health research has led to generation of new knowledge and innovative practices in management of illness. This has resulted in a significant challenge for health professionals: if today we discovered a new therapy through research, when will this discovery be regularly prescribed or utilized to treat all patients suffering from this condition? Knowledge translation is the non-linear and often complicated process of translating knowledge into routine health practices. Technology enabled knowledge translation (TEKT) is the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) to accelerate knowledge translation. With the ubiquity of the internet, the proliferation of different approaches in communication and social networking, and the continuously improving technologies from netbooks to smartphones, there are rich opportunities for TEKT in health education, service delivery, and research.

This book is intended to mark the turn of the first century of the information age. The purpose of the book is to denote the transition from past to current to future investigations of the relationships and interactions among four major components: information systems (IS), information technology (IT), organizations, and society. These investigations share a primary focus on the interrelationships, not on the components themselves. The contributions to the book deal with the history of IS theory and technology, with the directions faced by those sharing the concerns of the field in its future research, and with attempts to draw these two views together. Five discourses collectively answer the key question: `What is the status of IS, as related to organizations and society, now that we stand at the juncture of the new century?' These discourses deal with the fundamental concepts, the classical and novel challenges, the conceptualization processes, automation, and new technology. What is our story as we turn the first century of the information age? We believe that IT is even more critical in social interaction in organizations, that human language barriers form fundamental roadblocks to IT implementation, that newer forms of IS integrate horizontally rather than vertically, and that the mix of skills and knowledge is changing. We also find that we lack integrated approaches to risk management, that new social costs are being unleashed on people by the wiring of society, and we are rushing headlong into globalized systems with our eyes closed. We reveal how the old end-user tension between central control and innovation has reappeared in the intranet world, how IT has been converted into a cultural commodity, and explore how the video screen has become the central means for discovering our relevance to our universe. We explore the surprising ways that machines have acquired human status, not through robotics, but rather through social construction. We discover new norms for defining the relationships and exchanges between human beings and computers. For example, gender defines IS success and web design defines social relationships. Consequently, we show how systems must now be developed interpretively, rather than through rational–technical IS design principles used in the last century.
