Funded PhD: Exploring how evaluation can contribute to digital transformation of health services. University of Edinburgh.

di Redazione FGB [1], 26 Aprile 2021

Project Description
Improving the quality, safety and efficiency of care with health information technology is an important international strategic priority. Process and outcome evaluations of such technologies are important to maximise their value and demonstrate effectiveness. However, the increasing complexity and scale of health information systems presents new challenges to evaluation, including for example the fact that many benefits take a long time to materialise and occur in often unanticipated ways. Evaluators therefore need new tools to research and theorise digitally-enabled health service transformation. The focus of this work will involve drawing on theoretical tools and theories from various disciplines to inform such evaluations, research international developments and approaches, and apply this work to ongoing practice in the National Health Service.
