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.

The Health Care IT Track at CONFENIS is a forum for presentation of research
results and discussions related to design, implementation, adoption, use and
management of Health IT. We welcome IS studies from a variety of research
disciplines including computer science, software engineering, economics,
social studies, policy making, strategy and evaluation theory. We invite
