    Flexible Self-Care Solution Portfolio: Adaptive Support for Patient Centered Heart Failure Care2016In: International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems/International Conference on Project Management/International Conference on Health and Social Care Information Systems and Technologies, CENTERIS/ProjMAN / HCist 2016 / [ed] Varajao, JEQ; CruzCunha, MM; Martinho, R; Rijo, R; BjornAndersen, N; Turner, R; Alves, D, Elsevier, 2016, p. 215-220Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Development of support systems in the area of e-health have different set of conditions that makes it more difficult than in other context of IS/IT use. In this research we explore a development case and look at the development process and the outcomes in terms of solutions. The research concerns the area of heart failure and how patients could be more successful with self-care. The outcome from the project was the creation of a portfolio of solutions, which was a combination of technical and process solutions. The outcome draws the attention to the need of flexible solutions and cater to the diversity of the patients and their personal situations. In the concluding discussion a set of design dimensions are presenting, representing difficult trade-offs that needs to be handled during the design process. (C) 2016 The Authors.

    Motivation for adopting fall prevention measures: a literature review searching for technology acceptance factors2018In: CENTERIS 2018 - International Conference on ENTERprise Information Systems / ProjMAN 2018 - International Conference on Project MANagement / HCist 2018 - International Conference on Health and Social Care Information Systems and Technologies / [ed] João Eduardo Quintela Varajão, Maria Manuela Cruz-Cunha, Ricardo Martinho, Rui Rijo, Dulce Domingos, Emanuel Peres, Nederland: Elsevier, 2018, Vol. 138, p. 3-11Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a literature review of motivating factors for taking part in fall prevention activities among the elderly. The research aim is to improve the design and development of IT-based fall prevention programs for a deeper understanding of what motivates users to take part in such programs. Making fall prevention IT-based might improve the situation but might also become an obstacle in itself. To better ground this design process, a review is made of current efforts of fall prevention and of understanding motives for participation in fall prevention programs. As a result, we present a set of driving forces for the elderly to participate in fall prevention and discuss these in the context of technology acceptance theory, giving outlines for a model of motivating factors for them to use IT-based fall preventions systems. The results show a general direction of motivational efforts used in fall prevention to consist of some form of personalization strategy where, e.g., personal goals and conditions are used to adapt prevention measures to the individual.

    Taking Adaptable Co-design Action: Flexible Learning Between Health Experts, End-Users and Technology Experts in the Early Stage of eHealth Design2019In: eTELEMED 2019: The Eleventh International Conference on eHealth, Telemedicine, and Social Medicine / [ed] Yoshitoshi Murata and Oliver Heinze, International Academy, Research and Industry Association (IARIA), 2019, p. 90-95Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Co-design, as a way of integrating users’perspectives and technical possibilities, has been subject to amultitude of interpretations. To facilitate the development ofpatient-empowerment services, co-design is a central approachneeded to ensure high acceptance among users. In thisresearch, we offer a flexible co-design approach by building onadaptive and continuous planning based on sets of co-designactions directed towards participants’ mutual learning. Theresearch is based on the experiences of a co-design processwithin the area of eHealth, specifically the fall prevention area,as a special case of self-training systems and self-managementsystems. The project team comprises a variety of membergroups, including the elderly, technical developers, businessdevelopers, methods experts and project management. The keysuccess factor was identified among the persons of the differentgroups as achieving possibilities for learning. To make learningprocesses requires adaptability and flexibility in interactingdifferent planning actions in order to balance both the need fortechnology development and the understanding of users’needs.

    The Creation of Users: A Learning Experience in Information System Development2018In: International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC), ISSN 1947-315X, E-ISSN 1947-3168, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 74-88, article id 5Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to provide a better understanding of an information systems development process from a learning theory perspective. The authors wish to investigate how learning concepts can improve the practice of developing such systems. They look closer at the activities and outcomes of a development project with the focus on the user side and how these can be understood using different theories from the field of learning. The purpose of the case project was to ensure that the intended users of the systems (in this case, heart failure patients) should be able to influence the choices made during the project so that the implemented system would benefit the whole group of patients. During this process, it became apparent that the users themselves developed and changed a great deal. In this research, the authors therefore wish to investigate the learning and change mechanism that came into play through the designed participative ISD process. As a result, they suggest that a learning mechanism should be planned for in any ISD process, regardless of what methodology is applied.

    Understanding user learning in its development: application of illeris’s learning model2017In: Proceedings of the 10th IADIS International Conference Information Systems 2017 Budapest, Hungary, 10-12 April, 2017 / [ed] Miguel Baptista Nunes, Pedro Isaías and Philip Powell, IADIS Press, 2017, p. 77-84Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates a learning model for its capabilities to improve the understanding of user learning during information systems design (ISD). We wish to explore the role of the ISD process as a learning process. Today, organizational design and development increasingly circulate around notions like ?organizational learning” and ?organizational knowledge creation” or is, in the general direction of organization, in a constant process of change. An information system could be the driver for new organizational routines or new produces, or the necessary component for realizing a new business strategy. The possible role of the information system might then be as a force for change or an obstacle, by the way it is used during its life time. Here we look at the development of the systems and how this process must reflect a high level of adaptation, learning and change in the user community. To add to the knowledge of ISD as a learning system we read a co-design-driven ISD case through the theory lens of Illeris (2007). We discuss the possibilities of designing an ISD process based on this learning theory and of creating users as well as an information system.

    Abstract [en]

    The quest for user friendly systems that fit into an organizational reality and yet stay competitive on a very crowded marketplace is a challenge. This report covers the setup of an eHealth project that faces challenges in all these areas, not least in the intersections between them. We discuss these challenges in the context of a research and development project, FRONT-VL, which is in its start-up phase, giving samples of problems and opportunities. The purpose of the paper is to problematize eHealth development and to provide initial insight into the planning and conduct of such projects.

    Challenges for Heart Failure Patients’ Self-Care Systems: Analysis of Patients’ Needs2014In: Centeris 2014 - Conference on Enterprise Information Systems / Projman 2014 - International Conference on Project management / HCIST 2014 - International Conference on Health and Social Care Information Systems and Technologies / [ed] Varajao, J; Cunha, M; BjornAndersen, N; Turner, R; Wijesekera, D; Martinho, R; Rijo, R, Elsevier, 2014, Vol. 16, p. 1256-1264Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Self-care is important for heart failure patients. However, what are the views of patients on their situation when it comes to realizing self-care? The aim of the paper is to investigate the self-care needs of HF patients, by understanding the issues they embrace in their self-care processes. In this paper we make a review of 17 interviews and make a classification of what the needs are for possible information technology support systems. Based on the analysis of these interviews, we identify the diversity of needs in support of activities related to different background conditions and the dynamics of change of learning and changes in the heart failure condition. The contribution of the paper is a framework for understanding the diversity of needs and the specific situations of this group of patients.

    Patients Learning Process Supporting Change in Identities and Life Styles: A Heart Failure Self-care Scenario2019In: Information Systems and Technologies to Support Learning: Proceedings of EMENA-ISTL 2018 / [ed] Rocha Á., Serrhini M. (eds), Springer, 2019, p. 400-411Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with the planning of eHealth systems in the area of chronic care from a patient-centered perspective. The specific area is heart failure (HF) and systems that support patients’ possibilities to be active learners during the care processes and facilitate learning as a process of life style changes. Becoming better at self-care implies changes in lifestyle and the creation of a new identity. A better understanding of this process is intended to create a base for developing appropriate information systems or information technology (IS/IT) support for learning processes. The objective of this paper is the development of a better understanding of the challenges of self-care within chronic illnesses with special focus on HF. As a result, we present a set of issues that could guide the choice and design of ICT-based support systems.

    Establishing new consulting services in health care organizations: an ANT analysis of patient-centred care2013In: ACIS 2013: Information systems: Transforming the Future: Proceedings of the 24th Australasian Conference on InformationSystems, 4-6 December 2013, Melbourne, RMIT University , 2013, p. 1-12Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A recent trend in health care is patient-centred health, but are health care organizations ready to cope with that change? Changes at the patient level are one aspect but there is a need for reshaping the organization of health care. There is a need to focus much more on prevention care, helping patients to cope and become better self-managers, focusing on the patient process, working together and empowering patients. The aim of this paper is to gain a better understanding of the lack of sustainability over time in two patient-centred care (PCC) projects by using actor network theory (ANT) as an analytical framework. We use case studies from heart fibrillation and heart failure care organizations in a Swedish county council. The cases concern initiatives to achieve better interactions for these patients and organize care to become more patient-centred. Both initiatives have now been partly abandoned in the organization, although research and guidelines recommend such care organizations. The analysis of the different actors dominating the translation process towards a PCC network and of the way they get together in networks reveals that this is a time-consuming process, taking place long after the initial training and PCC implementation activities. We discuss the temporality of stability, the reversible process with chimerical enrolments, and how a complex and changing environment demands constant re-problematization of PCC.  We also include how the understanding of the translation and negotiation process can influence decisions on allocating sufficient time and resources to the process. We shed light on the importance of understanding and managing the organizational change in a PCC project and thus also of when to implement patient-centred e-health solutions.

    Five Roles of an Information System: A Social Constructionist Approach to Analysing the Use of ERP Systems2003In: Informing Science, ISSN 1547-9684, E-ISSN 1521-4672, Vol. 6, p. 209-220Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a novel way of thinking about how information systems are used in organisations.Traditionally, computerised information systems are viewed as objects. In contrast, by viewing the informationsystem as an actor, the understanding of the structuration process increases. The user, beinginfluenced by the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system and giving it an actor role, thereby alsoconfers agency on the ERP system; through its very use it influences actions and thus also the structure.Based on a case study of ERP use in an ABB company over a decade, five different roles played by theERP systems were identified. The ERP systems acted as Bureaucrat, Manipulator, Administrative assistant,Consultant or were dismissed (Dismissed) in the sense that intended users chose to avoid usingthem. These terms are defined in the full text.The purpose of this approach here is not to “animate” the information systems, to give them life or amind of their own, but rather to make explicit the socially constructed roles conferred on them by usersand others who are affected by them. On this basis, it is possible to suggest how the roles can help usopen up new areas of exploration concerning the fruitful use of IT.

    Wiki collaboration in organizaitons: an exploratory study2011In: 19th European Conference in Information Systems, Helsinki, Finland 9 - 11 June, 2011., 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of social media technologies in organizations has introduced novel ways of collaboration, communication, and knowledge sharing. In this respect, the present study is concerned with examining the use of one type of social media, the wiki technology, by members of several professional communities of practice to collaborate and share knowledge with each other. As such, it seeks to identify and understand the factors that influence their use of the wiki at a large multinational organization. To this end we used an interpretive exploratory case study which included 12 in-depth interviews with senior employees and managers as primary sources of data. Additional data was obtained during two field visits at the organization through observation of the wiki, field notes, and organizational documents. The study concludes with rich insights into the dual impact of the openness of wiki collaboration as well as the manner and value of using the wiki for knowledge collaboration and sharing at the workplace.

    Wiki-based Community Collaboration in Organizations2011In: 5th International Conference on Communities and Technologies, Brisbane, Australia,  29 June - 2 July., 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social media technologies are increasingly used within organizational settings. Particularly, organizations continue to adopt and use wikis for enabling collaboration among their professional communities of practice. At this respect, the current paper reports results from an interpretive case study focusing on the use of a wiki for knowledge collaboration and sharing at a large multinational organization. It examines how the wiki is used by members of several professional communities of practice through interviews, observations, field studies, and documents. It concludes by showing that the openness of the wiki has a dual impact on wiki collaboration and also discusses how the wiki might serve as both an enabler and inhibitor for community and knowledge collaboration.

    Social Media and Organizing: An Empirical Analysis of the Role of Wiki Affordances in Organizing Practices2013In: 34th International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS 2013): Reshaping Society Through Information Systems Design, 2013, p. 3470-3488Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The evolution of social media has introduced novel possibilities for work and interaction in organizations. The wiki technology is one important kind of social media technologies that is increasingly used to facilitate the creation and sharing of organizational knowledge within communities. Given the increasing use of social media in organizations and the lack of knowledge on their consequences for organizing, we use an affordance lens to explore the enactment of organizational wiki affordances. Using qualitative data obtained through interviews, field visits, and documents from two multinational organizations –CCC and IBM– we first identified eight affordances that describe various wiki possibilities and practices. We then identified four properties of these affordances including multiplicity, referential, situatedness, and communal. These properties represent the main contribution of the paper in that they extend the notion of affordance by theorizing new concepts that describe relational dynamics, situated and contextual conditions, and social factors involved in enacting, perceiving, and exploiting affordances.

    Social Conceptualizations of Technology Structuring: A Comparative Analysis of Wikis at Two Global Organizations2013In: International Journal of Virtual Communities and Social Networking, ISSN 1942-9010, E-ISSN 1942-9029, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 35-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The widespread adoption and use of social media in almost every aspect of our daily lives may outpace existingempirical understandings. In organizations, social media are increasingly used by professional individualsand communities to support dynamic collaboration and knowledge sharing. While there is a growing amountof research on this subject, still little is known on how people use different kinds of social media in practice.That is, there is a need for an empirical understanding that addresses actual use practices of social mediawithin the formal boundaries of organizations. To this end, we report on results from a qualitative comparativestudy of the use of wikis at two global organizations. Our aim is to develop an empirical understandingof the enactment of structures and the ways by which people structure and organize their wiki use practicesby drawing on Orlikowski’s (2000) practice lens. The findings from the authors analysis suggest a number ofenacted structures that reflect diverse wiki use practices. The main contribution centers on developing threekey mechanisms that provide means for understanding the structuring of the use of technology.

    Investigating an HCI evaluation criteria framework for patient-centered eHealth solutions a case study of self-management of heart failure2014In: 2014 IEEE Conference on e-Learning, e-Management and e-Services (IC3e), IEEE conference proceedings, 2014, p. 99-104Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Heart failure seems inevitable as we grow older; even younger people succumb to its cruel onset. Finding solutions has kept medical researchers continually chasing ways to limit its effects. Yet much can be done in a proactive sense for patients with heart conditions that can be used to support patients in becoming reflective, empowered and active self-carers themselves. We investigated individual patient-centered case-studies, to understand how to best encourage people to become confident self-carers. We propose that a successful evaluation framework should consider the need for individual extensibility of effective human-computer interactive (HCI) healthcare solutions to design and build a proof-of-concept eLearning system that innovates quality eHealth education for self-care heart failure prevention.

    Abstract [en]

    Heart failure seems inevitable as we grow older; even younger people succumb to its cruel onset. Finding solutions has kept medical researchers continually chasing ways to limit its effects. Yet much can be done in a proactive sense for patients with heart conditions that can be used to support patients in becoming reflective, empowered and active self-carers themselves. In another project, Riegel, Jaarsma and Stromberg (2012) investigated individual patient-centered case-studies, to understand how to best encourage people to become confident self-carers (Aidemark, Askenas, Martensson, & Stromberg, 2013). We have drawn on these earlier works to design and build a proof-of-concept for a participatory eLearning system to innovate quality eHealth education for self-care heart failure prevention. The first task has been to develop an evaluation framework that represents the need for individual extensibility of effective online human-computer interactive (HCI) healthcare. Our plans are to use this framework to compare other online healthcare systems research. Critical to the success of this educational information system (IS) are the diversity of the system-users' that are raised by the human-dimensions of online healthcare. HCI archetypes will guide the user as they journey through key healthcare scenarios. Our main aim with this project is to provide a participatory online self-managed healthy heartcare programme. This paper describes our first project objective which is to test our evaluation framework.

    Getting to know your job: a social actor perspective on using information technology2004In: Information Technology Journal, ISSN 1812-5638, E-ISSN 1812-5646, Vol. 3, no 3, p. 227-239Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to develop an empirically grounded understanding of how newcomers learn to do their work and the role information systems play in this learning. Actor network theory views technology as an important actor. Information systems are built on and embody knowledge of the work and how to perform it. The influence of this actor depends on the other actors` ability to "translate" the capability of the technology into their own work setting. From a social constructionist perspective, it could be expected that the understanding and knowledge of the work is the result of mutual development of images in the group. However, this article builds on research showing that people working closely together can still hold radically different conceptions of their work. Three distinct understandings of work that are associated with different levels of competence and with different demands on the administrative information system are found. These different understandings of the work have implications both for training and for the development of information systems.
