Project Details


A distinct feature of population aging is spread across the world. Taiwan one of the fastest aging countries in the world. As the growing of the old population and the extension of lifespan, the demand for care services is increasing. Institutional care can provide professional support to enable the elderly to obtain good care. Care institutions provide multidisciplinary care services that need messages transmitted between the team workers. The adoption of modern information technology offers tremendous opportunities to enhance the efficiency of care and to improve the quality of service. However, the use of the information system in the care institutions are infrequent. Especially in recent years, medical institutions are actively involved in institutional care services. The linkage of information systems between institutional care and medical care is rarely. To provide the necessary and appropriate care, it is imperative to connect the hospital information system (HIS) with institutional care to ensure providing comprehensive care services. We therefore propose a 3-year research project to deal with the issue of eliminating the linkage gap between HIS and IS of care institution. We have identifies three research issues: (1) analyze the usability of the information system of the care institution, (2) design to eliminate the linkage gap between HIS and IS of care institution, (3) diagnostic the information system of care institution through important-performance analysis. These three research issues are new from the academic perspective and their solutions will be valuable for the perspective of enhancing institutional care.
