    Call for Papers

    During the last years a lot of comprehensive Enterprise Systems have been
    implemented in the Health Care sector all around the world. Some of the
    implementations have been successful but more have been seen as failures. It
    is important to follow the implementation from a research perspective in
    order to understand the process and to deliver knowledge to practice for
    future implementations.

    No doubt that the potential of IT in Health Care is high. Both inside
    hospitals and between different players in the sector there are unexploited
    effects related to patient service and satisfaction, efficiency, quality and
    the like. But the implementation process is not that simple. A lot of
    factors influence the process.

    results and discussions related to design, implementation, adoption, use and
    management of Health IT. We welcome IS studies from a variety of research
