Abstract

This article examines the relationship between the adoption of healthcare information technology (HIT) and a hospital's operational performance. Combining primary survey data from Florida hospitals and secondary data from two government agencies responsible for hospital certification and licensing, the authors find differential performance effects for different clusters of HIT: administrative, clinical, and strategic. Only clinical HIT investments were found to have a statistically significant positive effect on operational performance.
