Professor Ganju's research examines the impact of IT on healthcare and societal issues. Specifically, his research has examined the impact of IT on billing practices of hospitals, the propensity of physicians to leave hospitals (and even the practice of medicine) once IT systems are adopted in hospitals and the effect that the adoption of these systems by a hospital has on neighbouring hospitals and impacts on racial disparities in the delivery of healthcare. His research has also examined the effect that IT has beyond effects on GDP and productivity and the effect that the adoption of IT systems have on the well-being of citizens. His research has appeared in top management journals including Management Science, Information Systems Research and MIS Quarterly.
