Health services organizations (HSOs) have expanded into increasingly integrated delivery systems requiring more sophisticated health information systems (HISs) to support decision making. Computer innovations are required in most HSOs to support these HISs. Health services organizations decision makers are faced with many complex decisions during the computer innovation process. One of their most important decisions is judging HSO innovation readiness. Accurate judgments about HSO innovation readiness will have a direct impact on how successful decision makers are as computer innovators.
