Information Systems as Boundary Objects: - An Ongoing Study of Changing Knowledge Processes in Health Care
Karlstad University, Faculty of Economic Sciences, Communication and IT, Department of Information Systems and Project Management.
2003 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to present a framework for an ongoing empirical study. The study deals with knowledge use in a health care context and on how implementing a new computer-ised referral and answer system will change the knowledge processes. The framework is founded on theories and empirical studies from the literature and has a community of practice perspective. The information system is seen as a boundary object, which must be interpreted by different communities. The framework consists of six knowledge resources, which may be iden-tified in the organisation. But the resources are neither static nor independent and they must be studied in current use. Therefore, there is no way to analyse exactly the same knowledge re-sources before and after implementation of the system. Instead, the use of different knowledge resources must be studied
