Health Care IT


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