Research Overview

The development, implementation, and outcomes of information systems -- particularly health care IT (particularly patient records systems) and enterprise systems. The theories employed in such work include actor–network theory, Habermas, pragmatism, deconstruction, and language-discourse philosophies of various kinds. The research methods have included interpretive case studies, action research, experimental and quasi-experimental methods, and social critique
