I'm working for three months at Fondation Brocher at a study called 'Improving the social impact of new eHealth and telemedicine-applications: towards a resilient healthcare system'.
The research will take on a mixed methods approach, combining both quantitative and qualitative methods such as: stakeholder consultation, analysis of (archival) data and interviews. Since implementing eHealth and telemedicine takes place within an (social) environment in which different actors/stakeholders are involved, theories on network governance and the interrelatedness of the different actors will be used to interpret the results. Using concepts from people and person-centered care, analytical tools from affordances research, empirical material will be written during the residency at Brocher Foundation.
The objectives of the proposed study are to:
