Register today for the upcoming webinar, The Clinical Impact of eHealth on the Self-Management of Diabetes: A Double Adoption Perspective, presented by Mike Chiasson, University of British Columbia and Helen Kelley, University of Lethbridge.
About this Webinar
Despite this great promise, the impact of IT on healthcare over the past decade has so far been modest. Currently, almost 80 percent of physicians—the majority in small, independent practices – lack even rudimentary digital records. Where electronic records do exist, they are typically limited in functionality and poor in interoperability. As a result, the ability to integrate electronic health information about a patient and exchange it among clinical providers remains the exception rather than the rule.
- 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.
Dr. Mike W. Chiasson is currently a Professor in the Faculty of Management at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan. His research examines how social context (practices, culture, goals, outcomes) affects and is affected by the initiation, development and implementation of information technology. In studying these questions, he has employed interventional methods including action research, field experimentation and living lab methodologies, studying medical, legal, engineering, entrepreneurial, and governmental organizations.
Dr. Helen M. Kelley is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Management and Acting Associate Dean of the School of Graduate Studies at the University of Lethbridge. Her research focuses on the individual user of information and enterprise resource planning technologies, viewed from social cognitive and attributional perspectives. Her current interests investigate understanding what individuals and managers of organizations may do to enhance individual use, acceptance and adoption of information systems technologies in health care environments.
