  journal={Int. J. Heal. Inf. Syst. Informatics},
As health organizations strive to improve operational efficiencies and increase worker productivity, new forms of health information technologies (HITs) are constantly being developed. This article surveys the extant HIT literature and adopts a case analysis approach to identifying emerging health information technologies. The understanding of HIT trend is further enriched through the applications of technologyforecasting techniques, specifically, scenario analysis and U.S. patent searches. The…
