The issue of formative constructs, as opposed to the more frequently used reflective ones, has recently gained momentum among IS and Management researchers. Most researchers maintain that formative constructs have been understudied, and that there is paucity in methodological literature to guide researchers on how such constructs should be developed and(More)
An interdisciplinary healthcare team (IHT) has been advocated as a way to manage chronic illnesses. There is growing evidence that operation of an IHT can be improved with better coordination of team’s activities and improved collaboration among team members. This paper proposes MET4 – a multi-agent decision support system developed to facilitate(More)
Participatory medicine refers to the equal participation of patients and interdisciplinary healthcare team (IHT) members as part of care delivery. Facilitating workflow execution is a significant challenge for participatory medicine because of the need to integrate IHT members into a common workflow. A further challenge is that patient preferences should be(More)
This paper describes MET4, a multi-agent system that supports interdisciplinary healthcare teams (IHTs) in executing patient care workflows. Using the concept of capability, the system facilitates the maintenance of an IHT and assignment of workflow tasks to the most appropriate team members. Moreover, following the principles of participatory medicine,(More)
Clinical practice guidelines are knowledge uptake tools that support decision making by the physicians. They are often implemented as computer-interpreted guidelines that are embedded in a hospital information system. We argue that computer-interpreted guidelines should be considered as regular information system, thus their development should follow all(More)
Social information systems (SISs) will play a key role in healthcare systems' transformation into collaborative patient-centered systems that support care delivery across the entire continuum of care. SISs enable the development of collaborative networks andfacilitate relationships to integrate people and processes across time and space. However, we believe(More)
