IT-Governance in Integrated Care: A Risk-centred Examination in Germany

Lena Otto

Abstract

Health care systems face several challenges regarding costs and effectiveness. Integrated care networks and usage of application systems (as automated part of information systems) are two approaches to overcome these challenges. To fully reach their potential, a seamless process is mandatory. IT governance frameworks help health care organisations to implement an integrative risk management. Nevertheless, a network-centred approach, e.g. necessary for integrated care networks, is not in focus of existing frameworks, such as COBIT or ITIL. Therefore, the following article evaluates how selected frameworks can be used for risk management. A literature analysis and a case study of the German health care system are conducted focussing on confidentiality, integrity, and availability in integrated care networks’ application systems. Findings suggest that inter-organisational risk management is especially influenced by the increased need for coordination and the autonomy of network partners. Finally, the main aspects necessary for using the evaluated frameworks within an integrated care context are shown.
