IT ambidexterity and patient agility: the mediating role of digital dynamic capability

  title={IT ambidexterity and patient agility: the mediating role of digital dynamic capability},
  author={R. V. D. Wetering},
Despite a wealth of attention for information technology (IT)-enabled transformation in healthcare research, limited attention has been given to IT’s role in developing specific organizational capabilities to respond to patients’ needs and wishes adequately. This paper investigates how hospital departments can leverage the equivocal capacity to explore and exploit IT resources and practices, i.e., IT ambidexterity, to adequately sense and respond to patients’ needs and demands, i.e., patient… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

IT ambidexterity driven patient agility and hospital patient service performance: a variance approach
The outcomes demonstrate the significance of IT ambidexterity in developing patient agility, positively influencing patient service performance and shed light on how to transform clinical practice and drive patient agility. Expand
Achieving digital-driven patient agility in the era of big data
This study investigates how hospital departments can leverage a ‘digital dynamic capability’ to enable the department’s patient agility and demonstrates the significance of digital dynamic capability in developing patient sensing and responding capabilities that, in turn, positively influence patient service performance. Expand
The role of IT ambidexterity, digital dynamic capability and knowledge processes as enablers of patient agility: an empirical study
This study conveniently sampled data from 107 clinical hospital departments in the Netherlands and uses structural equation modeling for model assessment to contribute to the insights of the validity of the hypothesized relationship between IT resources, practices and capabilities, and hospital departments' knowledge processes and the department's ability to adequately sense and respond to patient needs and wishes.

Examining the relationship between a hospital's IT infrastructure capability and digital capabilities: a resource-based perspective
Findings based on an SEM-PLS analysis on a sample of 1143 European hospitals suggest that there is a positive relationship between an IT infrastructure capability and digital capabilities, and, surprisingly, financial incentives negatively affects this relationship. Expand
An examination of the antecedents and consequences of organizational IT innovation in hospitals
The results suggest that hospitals that are IT innovators can generate greater impact from IT, which in turn results in greater performance for the hospital. Expand
Technology alignment in the presence of regulatory changes: The case of meaningful use of information technology in healthcare
The results of this longitudinal study show that frequency of steering committee meetings and length of planning horizon broaden IT plan scope, which is positively associated with the ability of organizations to meaningfully use IT. Expand
An Examination of the Relationships among IT Capability Intentions, IT Infrastructure Integration and Quality of Care: A Study in U.S. Hospitals
The degree of IT infrastructure integration has significant effects on quality of care, in terms of both patient-centric responsiveness and error detection and reduction, is investigated. Expand
How Does IT Ambidexterity Impact Organizational Agility?
It is proposed that IT ambidexterity enhances organizational agility by facilitating operational ambideXterity, and that the magnitude of facilitation depends on the level of environmental dynamism. Expand
Exploring the relationships between IT competence, innovation capacity and organizational agility
This study examines two key antecedents of organizational agility, namely the IT competence of a firm and its innovation capacity and, examines their independent and joint effects on agility. Expand
Information technology and the search for organizational agility: A systematic review with future research possibilities
A systematic review of the literature on IT-enabled agility, helping to establish the boundary between what the authors know and what they don’t know is introduced. Expand
Shaping Agility through Digital Options: Reconceptualizing the Role of Information Technology in Contemporary Firms
It is argued that information technology investments and capabilities influence firm performance through three significant organizational capabilities (agility, digital options, and entrepreneurial alertness) and strategic processes (capability-building, entrepreneurial action, and coevolutionary adaptation). Expand
Healthcare technology management competency and its impacts on IT-healthcare partnerships development
The empirical results support the proposed structure for HTM competency encompassing the four skills/knowledge domains: healthcare organization overview, external knowledge networking, healthcare technology integration, and management and interpersonal. Expand
Paradoxes and the Nature of Ambidexterity in IT Transformation Programs
A substantive theory of ambidexterity is constructed that identifies and explains the paradoxes that managers need to resolve in IT transformation programs and finds that the nature of paradoxical tensions differs across the six areas and requires slightly different management strategies for paradox resolution.
