A Shared Information Technology-Business-Health Model: Lessons for Healthcare Leaders on Integrating Technology from Investment.
Technology is rapidly shifting our day-to-day existence, education, social relationships, health care and business. Psychiatric leaders have slowly explored telepsychiatric services – but few have an approach to technology in general–due to competing clinical, educational and research demands. Technology has typically been added on, rather than integrated, to institutional functions.
From a total of 2,710 potential references, two authors found 327 eligible for full text review and found 69 papers directly relevant to the concepts. Business and medicine/psychiatry have similarities/differences from both historical and contemporary views.
Many health care systems and companies lack a strategic plan for technology and focus only on short-term due to administrative demands. Clinical informatics is a rapidly expanding area and would be central to this process. It has started to facilitate patient-centered care as defined by quality, affordable, and timely health care.
Challenges for the company and other banking, financing and investing institutions include generating income, meeting consumer expectations and competing with others. Manual data may
have some pearls, but they are hard to access quickly and require reconciliation.
A data-charting form was not developed and used to extract data from each study, but notes were organized consistent with a narrative review or descriptive analytical methods by each reviewer
to extract contextual or process-oriented information from each study. The reviewers then compared and consolidated information regarding content.
Sometimes independent and dependent variables already exist within the social structure of a
Company under study, and inferences can then be drawn about behaviors, social attitudes, values and beliefs.
