Résumé en anglais

The study of IT adoption is a recurrent topic in IS research. In the healthcare sector and hospitals, the adoption of IT is predominantly justified by the desire to prevent medical errors and increase patients’ safety (Menachemi et al., 2007). However, researchers such as Mc Kee and Healy (2002) have observed that hospital reorganisations have received far less attention from researchers in Europe than is the case in the United-States. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to develop a research agenda focused on IT adoption in European healthcare organisations and to bring the new insights that can be gained from a more sociological, institutional view of the adoption process.
