本研究運用Hypercube創新模式,分析從遠距健康照護(Tele-health care)、電子健康照護(E-health care)到行動健康照護(M-health care)的創新演變過程中,對健康照護的二個核心構面:健康照護資訊學(healthcare informatics)與醫療遞送模式(medical related delivery model)所產生的變革與影響。藉由比較與分析各項構面的差異性與創新程度,進而探討該變革對健康照護體系中重要的參與者:顧客、醫院、互補性供應商(complementary providers)及監督管理機構(regulators)可能產生的衝擊。
This study utilizes a hypercube innovation model to analyze the changes in both healthcare informatics and medical related delivery processes based on the innovations from Tele-health care, E-health care, to M-health care. Further, the critical impacts of the E-health innovations on the stakeholders: healthcare customers, hospitals, healthcare complementary providers, and healthcare regulators are identified.
These results indicate that the innovation from Tele-health care to E-health care is architectural for healthcare customers, radical for both hospitals and healthcare complementary providers, and architectural for healthcare regulators. From E-health care to M-health care, innovation is architectural for both healthcare customers and hospitals, racial for healthcare complementary providers, and modular for healthcare regulators.
Thereafter, the critical capabilities and suggestions for adopting each innovation are discussed
