    ABSTRACT: The reluctance of information systems practitioners to adopt recommendations of evaluation methods and techniques is a sobering realization. One possible explanation is that they do not accommodate changing perceptions of what constitutes system-derived business value whose assessment requires richer evaluation approaches than mono-dimensional cost-benefit analyses. This paper reports a study that was undertaken in a bank faced with the challenge of assessing the value of its main e-banking channel in operation. Arguing that the evaluation of an information system should be seen as a form of communication, we describe the approach and evaluation model that was created and applied. The model employs five different perspectives each having its own set of metrics. These can be used to assess the business value along two viewpoints: (a) the internal view, where the channel is considered as a resource whose utilization must be maximized; and (b) the external view, where the channel as an interface to the bank's customer base should enable and support customer relationship management.

    ABSTRACT: Although elderly people are one of the major target groups for telemedicine applications, they remain under-represented in studies of teleconsultation. Videolinks appear to be easily used by many elderly people as a means of communicating with health-care staff, including psychologists and doctors. To date, studies of psychometric teleconsultation have been confined to screening tests, or have used very small numbers of patients. There is a need to examine the reliability of more complex psychometric batteries and to use larger samples of older people. Some recommendations for conducting clinical interviews and psychometric tests are presented, based on clinical experience and a review of the literature. The importance of ergonomic considerations, patient comfort and professional preparation are explained.
