Abstract

Developments of telemedicine have proliferated in recent years. While healthcare organizations and individual professionals have become increasingly interested in and knowledgeable about telemedicine, its ultimate success as a viable alternative service delivery or collaboration mode requires adequate addressing of crucial issues pertaining to technological and organizational concerns. The current study examined the technology implementation that has taken place in a Hong Kong-based neurosurgical teleconsultation program. Using a fairly comprehensive stage-model framework, the study analyzed the major organizational and social change activities experienced or undertaken by the host clinical department, together with key factors and their principal stakeholders. Findings of the study suggest several implications for telemedicine management and research and are discussed as well.
