Social Informatics of IT in Healthcare
Thread 4

t4 slide

Concerns about security and privacy are among the key barriers to the adoption and use of IT in healthcare. At the same time, IT not adequately designed for the clinical or healthcare context of its users creates security and privacy risks. Ensuring the security and privacy of IT in the delivery of healthcare requires recognizing the complex social context in which technology is used – a social context that includes patient, clinical, and organizational interests, as well as those of other “stakeholders” such as policy makers and insurers. While the security and privacy of healthcare information is assumed necessary by all stakeholders, the definition and practice of “secure” and “private” varies across stakeholders.

We seek to examine how both communities of practice and organizational factors influence: (a) perceptions of privacy and security of health information, and (b) IT practices for the exchange of three types of health information (laboratory test results, radiological test results, physician notes), and (c) how perceptions and practices vary across healthcare stakeholders. In addition, we will study provider morale and patient satisfaction because these outcomes are important to hospital leadership.

Research

The team has conducted 70+ interviews with clinicians and patients and has published the following papers:
