February 2012 – May 2012. Working with Tanya Luhrmann, Dept of Anthropology
My research focuses on health care IT, and how to achieve a good and effective fit between IT, work practices and organization. My primary focus is electronic patient records at hospitals and IT in home care. I aim to gain insight into health care IT in the USA to complement my studies in Europe. Coming from anthropology, I conduct qualitative studies of health care work in order to make these analyses feed into the design and development of health care IT. Once developed, I also study how hospital staff integrate IT in their work, necessitating new practices, re-organization and work-arounds.
