2015 (English)In: Schriften aus der Fakultät Wirtschaftsinformatik und Angewandte Informatik der Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg (22), University of Bamberg Press , 2015, 357-369 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The ability of individuals to access and use their online medical records serves as one of the cornerstones of national efforts to increase patient empowerment and improve health outcomes. However, the launch of online medical records in Uppsala County, Sweden, has been criticized by the medical profession and the local doctors’ union. The aim of this paper is therefore to present the results from an exploratory study where interviews with two oncologists are analysed and discussed based on the theory of Technological Frames and Patient Empowerment. The results indicate that medical doctors have different assumptions and perspectives that affect their use of technology and how they view patient empowerment in everyday clinical work.
