Benefit Realization from Healthcare Information System, an action research project

Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University


Obtaining business value from IT is a recurring theme that has diffused into healthcare information systems (HIS) where stakeholders often question the value of IT investments. Having finished the implementation of an integrated HIS, the Faroese Health Service (FHS) has started discussions about getting value from their IT investment, and how to reap those benefits is the subject of this project. In order to fulfil this objective an action research project was started in the autumn of 2010 consisting of three cycles: (1) setting the stage for benefit realisation, (2) benefit realisation in a pilot area, and (3) diffusion of benefit realisation to other areas.
