This book deals with the implications of informationtechnology (IT) in health care for organizational change.Its purpose is to move the emphasis away from the technologytowards people and organizations and to provide guidelineson successful implementation and utilization of IT by nursesin all health care settings. The topic is treated byconsidering three main areas - the impact of IT on society,the organization and on the individual. The text consists ofcollected papers written specifically for the WorkingConference under the three sections mentioned plus adistillation of group discussions by the participants. Themost important feature is the consideration oforganizational change issues resulting from theimplementation and utilization of IT in health care. Thetext takes a multi-national approach focusing on theexperience of eminent and key nursing informaticspractitioners. It should help prepare the reader for realitybetter than consideration of the potential of IT for nursingand health care.
