Assessing the Need of Decision-making Frameworks to Guide the Adoption of Health Information Systems in Healthcare

Raja Abbas, Noel Carroll, Ita Richardson

Abstract

Hospital Information System (HIS) is important in the healthcare industry as it supports a wide range of highly specialized health-care tasks, services and provide high-quality patient care. Adoption of HIS is one of the key decisions by hospital management, yet the function of hospital decision-makers within the area of new technology adoption, specifically the decision-making processes in the adoption of HIS remains unsupported. To investigate this phenomenon, this paper identifies HIS decision-making theories, their short-coming of adoption in healthcare organisations and decision-making facets that influence the adoption. These review will shed some light for future researchers to conceptualize, distinguish and comprehend the underlying HIS decision-making models and theories that may affect the future application of HIS adoption. A literature search was conducted to identify studies presenting HIS decision-making adoption theories/models in a healthcare environment. From synthesis of 26 studies, we identified five major facets that provides a structure to organize and capture information on the decision-making and adoption of HIS. The themes presented here provide a starting point in understanding the decision-making adoption theories, their major facets and their short-coming in adopting HIS. This will facilitate our future research on decision-making framework for the adoption of HIS.
