My current research falls at the intersection of three important and emerging themes in these areas: (a) meeting the needs of informed and actively participating healthcare consumers (which implies the relevance of information seeking, communication and information science); (b) healthcare organizations that interact with one another and with their customers, (which implies the relevance of health services research, healthcare administration, marketing communication, organizational research, and knowledge management); and (c) the development and use of new health information technologies (which implies the relevance of technology management, information systems, human computer interaction, and usability research).
