Anglicization of hospital information systems: Managing diversity alongside particularity.

Summary of "Anglicization of hospital information systems: Managing diversity alongside particularity."

Despite widespread efforts to improve the quality and safety of healthcare through use of hospital information systems (HIS), many healthcare organizations face challenges in implementation and effective use of these applications, in particular when systems have been developed internationally (mainly in the US). Suppliers of these technologies also find it challenging to produce systems that work effectively across a range of geographical, cultural and institutional boundaries. In this paper, we seek to understand the strategies used by suppliers and adopters of HIS to overcome the challenges involved in the development and adoption of generic overseas systems.
