Loppukäyttäjien osallistuminen potilastietojärjestelmien kehittämiseen on keskeistä, jotta järjestelmiä voidaan kehittää heidän tarpeitaan vastaaviksi ja työtehtäviin sopiviksi. Sairaanhoitajien ja lääkärien osallistumista käyttämiensä tietojärjestelmien kehittämistyöhön selvitettiin valtakunnallisten kyselytutkimusten avulla. Sairaanhoitajien aine...

This study turned the set-up around and asked systems devel...

However, existing collaborative methodologies for the parallel development of healthcare work and information systems are vague and fragmented. Furthermore, they neither address people-centred healthcare nor limited-resource contexts. In this paper we introd...
