e-Health Implementation in Lebanese Teaching Hospitals: What Can We Learn from Their Successes and Imminent Challenges

Nabil Badr, Elissar Chami, Michele Asmar

Abstract

We set on an exploration to learn from two major implementations of eHealth in teaching hospitals in Lebanon. After an explorative qualitative empirical work; we summarize learnings from these successes and present them as a backdrop for future studies. The main value of this study is in the discovery of the importance of technical and process readiness with an emphasis on dedicated stakeholder engagement to guarantee the successful outcome. The focus on the patient journey and the wellbeing of the practitioner in the new digital ecosystem are as important as financial preparation and infrastructure readiness. Researchers are still pondering the unintended consequences of EMR implementations and the effect of such implementations on the stakeholders of the healthcare ecosystem. In this paper, we argue that the road to success in the implementation of eHealth must be through stakeholder engagement as a means to increase the satisfaction of practitioners with the new work environment.
