Summary Researchers and decision makers in healthcare are taking great interest in clinical practices where there is a high potential to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce costs by incorporating a myriad of technology solutions. However, to date very few, if any of these IS/IT (information systems/information technology) solutions have realised the expected improvements to quality care with the expected cost reductions. This makes the need to evaluate the impact of IT on overall performance of clinical practices i.e. business value of IT a key strategic imperative in healthcare. To address this key need, we propose a comprehensive framework that conceptualises business value of IT in healthcare in different layers. To illustrate the proposed framework, a case study is used, which serves to examine the proposed conceptual model. The exemplar case study is an Australian-made nursing documentation system; an enterprise system that caters for multiple clinical users in acute healthcare contexts and hence provides appropriate richness to validate the proposed model.
