      Dyb, Kari (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      Norge har, i likhet med flere andre stater i den vestlige verden, investert betydelige beløp på innføring av informasjons- og kommunikasjonsteknologi (IKT) i helsesektoren. Til tross for politisk optimisme viser forskning at mange teknologiprosjekter feiler. Forklaringene på feilslåtte teknologiprosjekter er mange og til dels ulike. Det er likevel en klar tendens til å kategorisere IKT-utfordringene ...

      Sandaunet, Anne Grete (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2007-11-15)
      Online self-help groups multiply peoples' possibilities to exchange information and social support. Such possibilities are expected to be of crucial value for the 'new' healthcare user.

By means of qualitative interviews and ...
