Pathway Supporting Health Information Systems: Interdisciplinary Goal Integration - A Review

Research output: Contribution to book/conference proceedings/anthology/reportConference contributionContributedpeer-review



Care pathways and implementing information systems increasingly permeate the discipline of Health Information Systems Research (HISR). It explores the conception, modelling, realisation and impact of pathway-supporting HIS and strives for the best possible harmonisation of interdisciplinary goals from technology, medicine and public health research. A systematic literature review with qualitative content analysis is dedicated to this integrating character. It examines the interdisciplinary network of objectives associated with care pathways and pathway-supporting HIS in the HISR literature of the past decade. The research-in-progress paper presented here describes the background, methodology and interim content analysis results. Alternative questions and analysis strategies to this status are outlined in conclusion as a basis for discourse. In this way, adjustments to the research strategy of this project will be sought in a targeted exchange with researchers from the HISR.
