IT in healthcare: An integrative study of organizational change

Published: 12 Dec 2012

Authors: Safadi, Hani; Faraj, Samer

Abstract:

Research on Healthcare IT is a highly multidisciplinary field. Each stream of research brings a certain focus and contributions to our understanding of the role of technology in healthcare. However, this high multidisciplinary can be confusing as the results and implications of the different streams may look incommensurable. This paper looks at various streams of research on health IT and presents an integrative framework that utilizes organizational change to understand how different research streams on health IT interrelate and contradict in terms of their focus, contributions and implications. We argue that such an integrative understanding is the key to capture the complexity of health IT projects and ensure their success.
