Healthcare organizations (HCO) are under pressure to adopt emerging solutions with a view to improving the quality and efficiency of their operations, patient care and clinical decisions. In the literature, while recommendations have been put forth to follow an organizational approach to the adoption and implementation of analytics, there is a paucity of research into what specifically constitutes healthcare-analytics (HA), as well the antecedents that can explain and predict its adoption-decisions. In this paper, we fill this gap, by first proposing a typology for HA and an adoption-decision model that integrates the TOE framework with DeLone and McLean IS Success Model. We use a case study for the initial validation of the typology and the model. Our study reveals that the HCO studied has the same types of the data proposed in our typology, although the usage of the data and current/future adoption of analytics depends on many factors beyond simply technology.
