Abstract [en]

Swedish municipalities invest enormous amounts of resources in health information systems (HIS) in order to have a competitive edge, reduce cost in operations, faster storage and retrieval of patient information, foster transparency, efficiency and effectiveness in service delivery. This study examines the major challenges faced by the system end-users after the implementation of the new health information systems in the elderly and care homes in a municipality in a southern region of Sweden.  The rationale for the examination is derived from the discovery that the municipality is yet to fully utilize the new-HIS, despite huge investments in procurement, supervision and training of users.  The major reason why this topic was chosen was due to the challenges encountered while working as a care giver staff in one municipality in a southern region of Sweden. In this study, The technology acceptance model (TAM ) is used to better understand the current working of the new-HIS.   Mixed methods are utilized to conduct the case study; semi structured interviews and questionnaire survey. The findings of this study are presented in the findings chapter and have shown many shortcomings in the use of the new-HIS such as limited supervision from top management, inadequate skills, inadequate computers, long procedures thus time wasting, insufficient resources like financing and policies among others as further discussed in the research findings chapter in this report.  Finally, this study proposes the findings as contributions to the study of challenges faced by end-users after the introduction and reception of the new-HIS by the given case study; and it propagates share of experiences and lessons to be learned.
