The successful implementation of any innovation requires an understanding of its benefits and costs. This study examines the changes in the magnitude of costs and benefits associated with technology process innovation adoption as the innovation diffuses across different industries. Using RFID as an exemplar technology, the study shows that the magnitude of(More)
The advent of Internet technologies during the past decade has accelerated the diffusion of interorganizational networks and has intensified collaboration among organizations. Currently, most interorganization systems have moved to the public Internet network and rely on Internet and associated standards such as XML to codify and exchange data. Though often(More)

Human resource information systems (HRISs) have the potential to improve organizational efficiency and(More)
The objective of this paper is to clarify the role that socio-economic factors played in shaping the development of XML-based clinical data standards in the National Health Service in Scotland from 2000 to 2004. The paper discusses the NHS Scotland approach to clinical data standardisation, emphasising the actors involved, their choices during the standard(More)
We combine the concepts of legitimacy, institutional (mis)alignments, strategic responses and organizing visions to develop a conceptual framework to analyze the adoption of innovations that span organizational fields. We apply this framework to examine a telehealth innovation connecting a public sector hospital-based Eye Clinic with private sector(More)
