Examining Success In Health Information Technology Implementation Research, Madison Ngafeeson

Conference Presentations

The implementation of health information systems (IS) is rapidly increasing. In the United States, $70 billion will be invested by the government to facilitate the adoption of the electronic health record over a ten-year period. However, IS acceptance is not success. We use content analysis to investigate the success component.


An Exploratory Study Of User Resistance In Healthcare It, Madison Ngafeeson, Vishal Midha 2014 Northern Michigan University

An Exploratory Study Of User Resistance In Healthcare It, Madison Ngafeeson, Vishal Midha

Journal Articles

The US healthcare system is clearly experiencing a major transition. By 2015, the healthcare sector is expected to have migrated from a paper record system to a completely electronic health record (EHR) system. The adoption and use of these systems are expected to increase legibility, reduce costs, limit medical errors and improve the overall quality of healthcare. Hence, the US government is investing $70 billion over a 10-year period to facilitate the transition to an electronic system. However, early reports show that physicians and nurses among other health professionals continue to resist the full use of the system. This paper ...

Public Good Economics And Standard Essential Patents, Christopher S. Yoo 2014 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Public Good Economics And Standard Essential Patents, Christopher S. Yoo

Faculty Scholarship

Standard essential patents have emerged as a major focus in both the public policy and academic arenas. The primary concern is that once a patented technology has been incorporated into a standard, the standard can effectively insulate it from competition from substitute technologies. To guard against the appropriation of quasi-rents that are the product of the standard setting process rather than the innovation itself, standard setting organizations (SSOs) require patentholders to disclose their relevant intellectual property before the standard has been adopted and to commit to license those rights on terms that are fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND).

Potentially Valuable Overlaps Between Work System Theory, Demo, And Enterprise Engineering, Steven Alter 2014 University of San Francisco

Potentially Valuable Overlaps Between Work System Theory, Demo, And Enterprise Engineering, Steven Alter

Steven Alter

This paper explores how work system theory (WST) and related core ideas in various versions of the work system method (WSM) overlap with enterprise engineering and with the DEMO methodology. Based on the definition of work system, an enterprise can be viewed as a set of interacting work systems. A work system can be summarized at various levels of detail. The simplest level is basically a verb phrase. The next level is a “work system snapshot.” More detailed descriptions are based on a work system metamodel.

This paper’s contribution is in two areas, 1) establishing links between WST/WSM ...


Flipped Technological Training And Development Using Quality Systems Management In The Public Services Field, Dustin Bessette, Sharon Burton, Maurice Dawson 2014 SelectedWorks

Flipped Technological Training And Development Using Quality Systems Management In The Public Services Field, Dustin Bessette, Sharon Burton, Maurice Dawson

Maurice Dawson

Training and development is ideal for businesses process improvements in many public service fields. Education, development, and training tools are not new concepts, but are ideal, crucial, and responsive in the central utilization of employee training systems for public service fields. The need for public workforce has increased and demanded accelerated technological training and development process that have positive value and achievable gains. One method to surge this problem is to flip the technological training and development tools that have been issued and over used in the past. These tools not only hold back vicious potential from employees, but employees ...


Targeted Advertising, Platform Competition And Privacy, Henk LM Kox, Bas Straathof, Gijsbert Zwart 2014 SelectedWorks

Targeted Advertising, Platform Competition And Privacy, Henk Lm Kox, Bas Straathof, Gijsbert Zwart

Henk LM Kox

Targeted advertising can benefit consumers through lower prices for access to websites. Yet, if consumers dislike that websites collect their personal information, their welfare may go down. We study competition for consumers between websites that can show targeted advertisements. We find that more targeting increases competition and reduces the websites' profits, but yet in equilibrium websites choose maximum targeting as they cannot credibly commit to low targeting. A privacy protection policy can be beneficial for both consumers and websites. If consumers are heterogeneous in their concerns for privacy, a policy that allows choice between two levels of privacy will be ...


Systematic Ict Surveillance By Employers: Are Your Personal Activities Private?, Arlene J. Nicholas 2014 Salve Regina University

Systematic Ict Surveillance By Employers: Are Your Personal Activities Private?, Arlene J. Nicholas

Faculty and Staff - Articles & Papers

This paper reviews the various methods of information and communications technology (ICT) that is used by employers to peer into the work lives and, in some cases, private lives of employees. Some of the most common methods – such as computer and Internet monitoring, video surveillance, and global positioning systems (GPS) – have resulted in employee disciplines that have been challenged in courts. This paper provides background information on United States (U.S.) laws and court cases which, in this age of easily accessible information, mostly support the employer. Assessments regarding regulations and policies, which will need to be continually updated to ...

The Digitization Of Music And The Accessibility Of The Artist, Marius Carboni 2014 McMaster University

The Digitization Of Music And The Accessibility Of The Artist, Marius Carboni

Journal of Professional Communication

This article uses case studies to explore two ways in which technology can impact on artist production. First, technological innovations could facilitate many things that are not new by rather making existing processes better or cheaper in ways that might alter the situation meaningfully. Second, technology can change art through the more profound revision of the role of artist and art-perceiver (Fineberg, 2006). This article examines several examples of how the music industry has been impacted by new technology: Radiohead Rainbows, slicethepie.com, Ditto Music, Music Rainbow, YouTube Orchestra, micro-chunking and LiveFi. The article examines the impact of new technologies ...


Knowledge-Supported Design Thinking About Systems In Organizations: An Application Of Work System Theory, Steven Alter 2014 University of San Francisco

Knowledge-Supported Design Thinking About Systems In Organizations: An Application Of Work System Theory, Steven Alter

Steven Alter

This paper explains a type of knowledge-supported design thinking related to systems in organizations. It shows how work system theory (WST) provides the basis for the work system method (WSM), various versions of which have been used by many hundreds of MBA and Executive MBA students. Design thinking occurs throughout WSM and is especially prominent at the point where WST/WSM users apply their analysis and develop recommendations for improving an existing work system or creating a new work system. Knowledge support for that design thinking has been provided through the knowledge built into WSM, and can be provided in ...

The Relationship Between Fashion Blogs And Intention To Purchase And Word Of Mouth Behavior, Cassidy L. Vineyard 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The Relationship Between Fashion Blogs And Intention To Purchase And Word Of Mouth Behavior, Cassidy L. Vineyard

Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design: Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research

Blogs are an influential social media platform and a powerful marketing tool (Hsu & Tsou, 2011). A corporate fashion blog is an online product community. Online product communities established by retailers enable customers to interact with the company as well as amongst themselves (Nambisan & Watt, 2011). Online communities are a social space wherein relationships and ties are formed among the members and a common set of values and norms are established and shared (Nambisan & Watt, 2011).

The objective of this study was threefold. First it explored what factors shape readers’ intention to browse products on blogs. Based on a literature review ...


Establishing An Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Around Mid-Size Traditional Research Universities In Canada, Tarek Sadek 2014 McMaster University

Establishing An Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Around Mid-Size Traditional Research Universities In Canada, Tarek Sadek

Open Access Dissertations and Theses

Universities have come under increasing pressure to move further along the innovation continuum and supplement their traditional role in the conduct of basic research with more applied research activities. This trend reflects a shift in government expectations that public investments in basic research should produce a tangible economic return. However, it is not believed that conditions for success are presently in place to enable universities to maximize the returns to Canadian taxpayers. The focus of this thesis is to answer one question: How can we create a commercialization ecosystem around universities that lack such a system?

The thesis consists of ...

Is There A Clubbing Effect Underlying Chinese Research Citation Increases?, Li Tang, Philip Shapira, Jan Youtie 2014 SelectedWorks

Is There A Clubbing Effect Underlying Chinese Research Citation Increases?, Li Tang, Philip Shapira, Jan Youtie

Philip Shapira

There is increasing evidence that citations to Chinese research are rising sharply. A variety of explanations have been explored in previous studies. This research aims to explore another potential explanation – whether there exists a “clubbing” effect in China’s surge in research citations, in which a higher rate of internal citing takes place among Chinese most influential researchers. Focusing on the most highly cited research articles in nanotechnology, we found that a larger proportion of Chinese nanotechnology research citations are localized within individual, institutional and national boundaries. Both descriptive and statistical tests suggest that highly cited Chinese papers are more ...
