Carbone, Daniel R and Burgess, Stephen (2009) Motivations for the Adoption of Chronic Disease Information Systems in General Practice. Journal of Business Systems, Governance and Ethics, 4 (1). pp. 1-12. ISSN 1833-4318


The purpose of this paper is to highlight the key motivational factors that lead to the successful implementation of Chronic Diseases Information Systems (CDISs) in twenty eight general practices in a case study of a large general practice division network in Australia. The literature identified three major areas of CDIS motivation: patient care gap motivator, internal motivators and external motivators. Patient care emerged as the most important motivation for adopting CDIS, followed by risk management and financial incentives. However, the study also determined that the motivational forces are inter-related and suggests that the decision to adopt CDIS should consider a number of these identified factors.
