The Clinical Impact of eHealth on the Self-Management of Diabetes: A Double Adoption Perspective


The development, adoption, and acceptance of eHealth systems that change and improve patient self-care have been promising, but the results have been mixed and the work mostly a theoretical. In this research we respond to this opportunity by developing and accessing an eHealth system for newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes patients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Developing an understanding of the issues in designing and implementing health care IT for research purposes.
  • Identifying the challenges and opportunities in linking the relationships across IT adoption and healthcare outcomes.
  • Understanding how to represent health-related IT research in IS and healthcare journals
