CO-CARE - Collaborative Health and Social Care
2008 (English)In: Proceedings of 13th International Symposium for Health Information Management Research / [ed] P. S. Bath, K. Day, T. Norris, Massey University, New Zealand , 2008, 113-124 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we discuss the fact that more and more patients are treated in their homes by a set of organizations, sometimes with different ownership. We explore how this poses new and stronger demands on health care and home service staff, as well as on different managerial and operational levels, to improve their communication and collaboration. We emphasize the need for managers in different organizations to agree on ways and forms of communication and collaboration between the operational levels, and the particular importance of this during procurement of home care services. As a result a number of methodological measures, strategies and IT solutions to support organizational development, coordination and collaboration are suggested.
