Track's Contacts :
E-health encompasses a set of technological innovations (e.g. telemedecine, AI and algorithms, Medical devices) that announces a deep transformation of healthcare delivery systems. While there are many reasons to consider important improvements in terms of quality of care and efficiency, their implementation process also reveals unexpected barriers. Among them can be mentioned different patient’s behaviors for adopting them, power strategies among healthcare professionals that limit their effective use, and a lack of robust method for assessing their added-value.
Based on empirical and theoretical studies, this track aims to develop an analysis of the barriers during the implementation process of a technological innovation.
Articles that lead to define managerial recommendations when implementing e-health innovations are welcoming.
