Abstract :

Several empirical evidences revealed that a growing number of healthcare organizations are adopting Clinical Information Systems (CIS) to improve their performance. But the outcomes associated with the use of CIS depend, among other things, on the level of their sophistication. Drawing on data from 1000 European hospitals, we conducted an exploratory study to empirically derived patterns of CIS sophistication, combining hierarchical and non-hierarchical cluster analysis algorithms. Our study reveals four different clusters or patterns. We also investigate the extent to which contextual factors such as hospital size influence the level of CIS sophistication.
